    Default how to tweak soundcard?

    i have seen some post/pictures where people have tweaked their soundcard with bigger/better codensators and maybe other components and that has made me curious...
    so now i want to try it too... i got an old soundblaster live! soundcard for experiment and maybe i will try to do the same on my auzentech x-meridian soundcard, if it works out nice on the soundblaster...

    but my prob is that i don't know where to start... i wanna find out how to know which condensators/components i need to switch to get a better soundcard (and which size/brand the new components should be)

    and why do people do it? i think that the cards can play louder if you use bigger condensators but is it only for the loudness or is it also for better sound?

    hope some can help me or post some links so i can read about it :)

    I can't speak for everyone here but as for myself I've never heard of modding a soundcard and have no idea what the purpose could possibly be. Not really sure where you got the idea. If you want louder sound the best bet would be to get better speakers.

    here is one of the places.... but the guy who made this doesnt seem to respond...

    well it would be much easier to make the sound card better if its just to switch some condensators than buy new expensive speakers...
    also i think you maybe can get better sound quality if you use good condensators?

    You can have the best possible soundcard in the world but if you have cheap speakers they will still sound like crap. You need a combination of both and if anything you must spend as much as possible on the speakers/amplifier to get the best possible sound. PC specific audio systems are not designed for anything remotely close to audiophile quality sound.

    i have good speakers/amps (ofcourse i could find better but they would be very expensive then)
    im pretty sure that i can get better sq out of the soundcard i just need to know how :)
    i want to use it in my car, så i can get the same SQ from the soundcard than i got from my headunit... im sure it must be possible, i have heard of some ppl winning car stereo prices for their carstereo using an carpc as headunit.... ( with the auzentech card like i got)
