How to improve your PC audio quality
We all are great fans of music and we use softwares like Windows media player, Vlc media player etc. to process the sound. Have you ever given a thought about how these stuffs really work? Well our PC has a hardware for processing sound. Most motherboards have built in audio processing capabilities but that’s for the average sound enthusiast! What if you are a sound maniac? A sound and audio freak who likes to listen music in 7 channel and Dolby quality? Obviously you should buy an external hardware called “Audio Card” and plugin it to your motherboard for your extra sound processing capability requirements. Now a hardware alone wont do this for you. You need a software that can synthesize signals processed by your hardware (audio card). Most free softwares like Windows media player is for the average music listener, it doesn’t involve a 7 channels system or dolby or SRS features. What to do in such cases? Well you should use sophisticated audio processing softwares like Power dvd to get your maximum sound output. But these softwares comes with a price! Well there are still high end softwares that can process dolby,srs and 7 channel sounds; yet available for free download. I plan to introduce you to such audio processing softwares in this post.
Fx sound DFX Audio Enhancer:

SRS Audio Sandbox:
SRS audio sandbox is a great application for true music lovers. It comes with great sound output and processing capabilities that is otherwise available only with a costly DVD player software. It comes with many in built technologies and is capable of playing 2 channel, 5 channel, 7 channel and Dolby sound.
The SRS components are listed below:
SRS WOW HD™
SRS TruSurround XT®
SRS Circle Surround II®
SRS Headphone 360™
SRS Circle surround is the most recommended one out of these, because it can boost bass and audio quality even for very poor sound signals.
Well I said I am gonna list softwares that are free, but this one is only a trial version. You can download the trial version here and try it for free. If you are really satisfied by the software, well its worth paying a price for this SRS audio sandbox which costs 30 US Dollars.
Note: The best way I know to improve sound quality of your PC is by adding a sound card (hardware) to it. A good hardware coupled with good software can really do wonders to your audio quality.
