ASRock uses the Realtek ALC1220, which has one integrated headphone amplifier with support for up to 120dB SNR. A Texas Instruments NE5532 is used to amplify the internal HD audio header headphone output. We also find gold electrolytic audio capacitors and physical PCB division to improve audio quality.
