The RightMark Audio Analyzer suite is designed for testing quality of analog and digital paths of any audio devices, be it a sound card, an MP3 player, a consumer CD/DVD player or an acoustic set. The results are obtained by playing and recording test signals passed through the tested audio path by means of frequency analysis algorithms. The latest version of RightMark Audio Analyzer can be found here.
The ASRock Z77E-ITX Intel Z77 motherboard takes advantage of the Realtek ALC898 high definition audio codec. This is the first board we have run Rightmark Audio Analyzer in recent months, so we don’t have anything to compare to at the moment. It is simple enough to run on your own system if you want to see how it compares. Feel free to post up your results in our forums and let us know your configuration.
