I bought a Dell which comes with integrated SoundMax Digital soundcard. The computer can play audio without speakers or headphones, but the volume is very low. My old PC’s soundcard (Soundblaster) has treble and bass options, which make the audio sound much better. This SoundMax card doesn’t have these options (under Windows’ volume controls)
I’ve googled this lousy soundcard, and there appears to be some sort of SoundMax Control Panel, which I hope may have more advanced options. But I have the latest driver, and there’s still no control panel.
Does anyone have any tips how to improve the sound? Do I have to buy a$$kickin speakers?
Like for listening to the songs of Idol3, on my computer the songs sound worse than on my work computer.
