For the very first time I used the very good onboard audio on my ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z ROG motherboard. It took me awhile to configure jRiver 24 to play with it. I could not get the WASAPI input to work. The on board drivers are Realtek High Definition Audio. The onboard audio is 7.1. It has a dedicated subwoofer output, hmmm When It fired up my jaw hit the ground. I had been using the ASUS Xonar Essence STX SC but I had trouble getting the Xonar to play nice with jRiver 24. With the onboard system, it is a match made in heaven. Crystal clear audio, beautiful articulation, and tight powerful controlled Bass. I am hearing the little things. The orchestral soundstage is open you have a sense of where the sections are located, strings here, woodwind there, the brass in the back. Listening to Dhol Dogs by the Afro Celt Sound System incredible detail stuff I have never heard clearly on the 10B’s. These are 48-year-old speakers!!! The W45’s are not a speaker that is going to fill up a dance hall but for a cozy manroom perfect. Now I am wondering what will a W60E sound like.
