Metallic grape posted a topic in Music ServersI would describe the sound I'm getting from new new dell Inspiron as somewhat muddy in the mid lower frequencies with the vocals sounding distant and confusion of depth. Running through eastern electric minimal dac. Before my My old gateway tower died it sounded great as good my high end Cdplayer. Now I have a $1000 dell Inspiron with all the bells and whistles but can't get the clear sound as I did through the tower. Using jr river with aif files all cords and equipment the same. Settings in jrr appropriate. Could it be that laptop sound cards just can't cut it like a good higher end soun card in a tower? Should I have the same expectations for an expensive laptop as I do with a decent tower? What am I doing wrong? Should I look at getting better sound card for the laptop? I'm pissed because I expected an expensive laptop to stand in for my tower. Was I wrong?
