EVGA teams up with Audio Note to improve PC sound

Design engineer Andy Grove on what makes EVGA's upcoming audio products tick.

EVGA is definitely branching out at CES 2016. The high-end manufacturer has already unveiled a 4K-ready gaming laptop and a yet-to-be-named chassis, but there's plenty more in the pipeline as the American firm is diving head first into the world of PC audio.

As is the case with most EVGA products, the company's first audio solutions won't be timid affairs and will instead be aimed at audiophiles seeking to "bring high-end audio down to the level of PCs."

In order to make it happen, EVGA is teaming up with Audio Note, a UK-based firm that claims to create "the finest domestic audio reproduction equipment money can buy." There's no firm indication of when the initial products will arrive, but you can get an early look at a prototype sound card and an external USB solution in the above video.

I very much doubt you'll be able to hear the difference from any of the current popular USB DAC/amp solutions available now for similar money or less.

Tend to agree. The reproduction and clarity will still depend on the sound equipment it's played through. ALC1150 on a good board is about as good as it gets and still sounds awful on a cheap headset or cheap desktop speakers.
depending on the end product $2-300 might be a good investment - especially for an Audio Note product.
Yes I agree. I'm glad two such reputable firms are taking this route. I think it will be interesting to compare. I think with a combination of quality headphones, software, and a quality audio card, then listening could be transformed. I'm always amazed when I upgrade, just how much more I hear in a tune/recording.
