Since both these cards have the same CS4398 DAC chip, they (in theory) should perform the same. However, the Sound Blaster is £20 more than the DX (second hand). Does this card have any better features that make it worth £20 more?
I know that there is a lot of noise in the case, so getting a USB DAC is better, but with a sound card, there are not that much wiring for noise to leak in... so internal and external should sound almost the same. Shoot me.
Thanks in advance.
