This viewer question on our last podcast seemed innocent enough: do I still need a sound card, or is motherboard audio now good enough? Geoff initially started to answer one way, but soon, our conversation took a turn in the opposite direction. Then the evidence came out—and the truth about what TR's editors do in their own PCs.
We'll be posting more video clips from the podcast on our YouTube channel going forward. Feel free to subscribe.
Incidentally, I know some of you are strictly readers and have expressed a preference against us posting these videos. People are viewing and discussing them, though, so we'll likely keep it up. Realize that bringing you a discussion like this one takes very little time, and otherwise, we'd just have less stuff to post. If you are concerned about having to click through a headline only to find it's a video rather than text, I get it. Let me suggest reading the news page to minimize your clicks. That's why it's there!
Update: I believe this is our most recent sound card review. May be a useful reference.
