    Hello everyone,

    I have a Macbook Pro with Retina 2014 and 2.1 stereo speakers Harman Kardon Soundstick III.
    Speakers on the MacBook play perfectly , strong and clear sound providing pleasure for the ears.

    MacBook now uses my sister , I have a PC motherboard MSI Z97 Gaming on which sound chip Realtec ALC 1150.
    The sound on an integrated sound card is unbearable , speakers lost their purity power , I do not want to listen to them.

    What sound card will play like the MacBook , or better?
    OSX is probably better suited to the music ?

    I thought about AIMSC8000 tab that holds the DAC as Audiotrack Prodigy HD2 (3 times more expensive)

    This card will play better than the Macbook ? Is it better to buy an external DAC ?
