*MSI Z170A SLI Plus Review MSI Z170A SLI Plus Review - Audio Performance

We use the Playback/Recording test, first adjusting levels so they're within the benchmark parameters and then using 24-bit 192kHz tracks, we connect the line-in to the speaker/line-out jack using a standard 3.5mm audio cable.
