I have a dell xps desktop which costed about 6k last year.

It has the standard Realtek sound card.

I'm thinking about buying a better sound card.

Any suggestions?

I don't know what I don't know.

I want to stop the problems I'm having with the audio intermittently stopping due to software selection or blue tooth disconnect crossed wires situation. I need a hard wired solution I think?

I also want to use zoom calls in vmix with ease. I also need to record q and A live streams.

Thanks

There are many USB choices out there. If you are looking for PCIe cards then Creative Soundblaster and ASUS have models in the $100-200 range.

If you want a high-end internal soundcard with either 1/4" or DB connections, they are pricey.

Don't.

Get something like a Focusrite Scarlet or a Behringer UMC204HD and connect them to a USB port on your computer and use the ASIO drivers for it.

That'll get the sound processing chip well away from the RF frequencies floating around inside your PC chassis.

He's probably already made a decision :)
