I can't extract much information out of Dell or on Google for the sound system in my Dell Dimension 4550, I have upgraded most everything on it except the sound, which is described by Belarc as "SoundMAX Integrated digital Audio, and Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device.
What can I do to get better sound, I want to use Dragon naturally speaking which says it needs 16bit soundcard. but at the same time improve sound for broadcast programmes and downloads from Spotify.
To enable some one to help you can you confirm which Dell model - your heading says Dell 1550 but your post refers to Dell Dimension 4550. I take it you have onboard sound and want to fit a 16 bit Sound Card ?
