Default An audio PCI card is better than an integrated audio card on motherboard?

Hi, I'm thinking to buy a separate PCI audio card like this: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00...qh_dp_hza?th=1
I will use it only to listen what I have on Edius 9 timeline with narrator's voice in a small room.
Now I'm using my 2 amplified speakers "Edifer R1600T Plus" with the integrated audio card on Asus PRIME X299-DELUXE.
In your opinion will I hear better audio with that Sound Blaster card?
Thank you!

I assume you will still use the same speakers. If so I doubt you will notice any difference. Don't forget our hearing goes off markedly with age.

Consider either a TB3 or USB audio device. I use an Edirol(Roland) UA-25EX 24 bit/96kHz USB interface as my audio device. This gives me both
Hi and Low-Z inputs, a hardware compressor/limiter, and a full size headphone jack.

There are many different manufacturers with similar interfaces. I have one on each of my machines.

Do not exclude this type of interface.
Get a name brand unit.

Is it a DAC? Could you tell me in few words what it can give you more than an internal audio card? Thank you.

PS. I think an Audient id14 is good for me, right?

I don't use any internal audio with EDIUS, I have set the Matrox MXO2 as the default audio device

and if I use Blackmagic cards, I set the BM as default audio dvice

This seems pretty pricey. There are similar devices on the market that will work just as well for less.

The big one for me is that it is a separate break out box. I can plug my voice over microphone directly into the interface with a full size XLR connector.
I like having a hardware compressor/Limiter over software versions. My Mackie mixer plugs directly into the Edirol and there is only one connection going into the computer.

Motu makes some very nice interfaces. They can get very expensive though.

This might help you.

A soundblaster card is still a consumer card, not much different than the one built into your motherboard. It may be a bit better, but probably not enough to really warrant using it over the the motherboard one.

Like Anton, I run all my Edius I/O through my matrox box, as that is the way edius routs the audio output when using a video I/O. I don't require a V/O mic, so have not gone the route that Jerry has.

I would suggest you also consider a decent set of near field studio monitors if you want to really hear better. The speakers will make a much larger difference than different consumer sound card.

I personally take the output from my matrox box and my internal sound card into a samson C-Control (recently discontinued after many years in production, but a Mackie big Knob will do the same thing) so that I can have both audio sources available and switchable, if I want to use something like Wavelab, and feed the output of the C-Control into a 12-15 year old set of KRK Rokit-5 monitors. (here is the current version: http://www.krksys.com/Studio-Monitors/ROKIT-5-G4)

I like the KRK's because they sound pretty good and are not very expensive, but there are other brands that have similar monitors.

If you are planning on serious audio work, you might want something bigger than the Rokit-5's though, as a 5" woofer due to it's size, can't really reproduce below 40Hz-50Hz

I use UAD's Arrow (Thunderbolt 3) with a pair of Genelec studio monitoring speakers (and a sub woofer). If you want to hear everything in your audio recording, get a good pair of speakers.

Out of curiosity: I listen a bad voice when I play the Edius timeline. If I click on the audio file (vaw) and I listen it without Edius but with a PC software, I listen a clearer voice (with the same speakers). Even when I esport from Edius timeline to .h.264 and I watch that file on a TV by a good audio system I listen a bad voice. My question is:
would I have to modify something in the Edius settings, for example the codec, to listen a better voice?
Is it possible to change codec on Edius 9?

Edius should pass the audio out the same as anything else.

Check your sound card driver settings to see if there are any "special effects" or "Sound Fields" set. Some sound cards have these settings in there that can be applied selectively to applications. If one of them is enabled for Edius it will make Edius sound different than other applications.
