I had for years been using windows 7 and my beloved HT omega E Clario sound card . Then along came the upgrade to windows 10 pro and the new drivers from HT omega ( used the newest available) Now my clarion sounds like crap ! On windows 7 it was awesome the clarity and detail rocked ! Now my onboard sound , Realtek ALC1220 is blowing away the cmedia 8788 ht omega clario .:bang: ( and that isn't say much. Is their a better sound card available that would rock my windows 10 and beat realtek 1220 and be stable ? I almost bought a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1 but I remember being burned by creative years ago ! ( driver issues ) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102063&ignorebbr=1 I did do some research on the Audigy rx 7.1 seems windows 10 does have some sort of built in driver and that is what peaked my interest thoughts on a new sound card ?
