Some cards are more expensive than the whole computer</a>

The computer is a piece of metal that stands under the table and buzzes.

If you want him to sing, play the guitar, start making sounds of shots, the roar of motors and the rumble of applause from the crowded football stadium, you need to choose and buy a sound card.

  • Computer and Internet



Decide what you need a sound card for. If you want a computer to just make some sounds that are similar to music, shots and the noise of the stands, then it's enough to have a sound adapter built into the motherboard. These devices can reproduce a sufficiently high-quality sound.
If at your home dusty qualityAn audio system with five speakers and a subwoofer and you want to hear surround sound, then you need to choose semiprofessional equipment. Prices for them vary from two to ten thousand rubles. But there are also professional sound cards. They are already more expensive and are intended mainly for musicians, producers, sound producers, monitors and other professionals, as well as hardened aesthetes, for whom the sound quality is everything. The cost of such products can reach up to 50 thousand rubles.


Next, decide whether you want the built-inSound card or external. Here the choice depends on how you intend to use your computer: listen to music, watch movies and play, sitting directly at the table, or use it as a sound source, and connect the TV to the video card and watch from afar.

In the second case, you are more likely to use an externalsound card. They come with a remote control, with which you can control the sound level and several more acoustic characteristics.


If you want to not only listen, but also recordMusic or other sounds, then you will need a card with additional features. Most modern cards, even those that are cheap, have an opening for the microphone. If the microphone is not enough for you, then it will not be difficult to find a sound card with input holes for the "tulip". Such opportunities provide not only professional sound cards, but also semi-professional ones.
