    Does anyone have an opinion as to which is a reasonable Audio chip inbuilt into a Laptop ?

    I want to monitor WAVs etc on cans strait out of the Laptop without an additional USB box PC card

    I've seen Yamaha, ESS , and Crystal in various specs.
    I know the inbuilt chips are all a bit dodgy but which is the best of the bunch in your view ?

    Crystal chipsets are nice..sound allright..Yamaha to me have always sounded tinny and annoying..
    You just have to understand you are limited on dynamic range and headroom..noise floor is terrible of course..especially when running off of the battery!
    To me they pretty much sound all the same..but if you were to go with one see about a Creative audio for the built in sound card
