Does a HP Pavilion Elite HPE595a come with builtin speakers or is audio via external speakers ?  Sounds a basic question that I should know already but I dont.

 

Thanks for the Support.

Desktop PCs all use external speakers except the oldest PCs. Here are the specs for your PC. It has an integrated IDT 92HD89E audio solution.

Integrated IDT 92HD89E Audio
*Integrated audio is not available if a sound card is installed.
  • Built-in High Definition 8 channel audio
  • IDT 92HD89E CODEC
 Thanks Erico.  Neither of the above terms from the spec mean much to me.  I just want sound and based on your answer no modern desktop PC will give you built in sound.  What I find interesting from your answer (and surprising) is that modern desktops do not have build in sound while older desktops do.

There are a few models such as the TouchSmart desktops that do have built in speakers.. Purchase a PC speaker set and plug it in to the green connector at the rear of the desktop PC.

The older generation PCs even had a piezo electric speaker to enable the user to hear the BIOS beep codes. The little speaker was pretty worthless for sound, so most everyone plugged in a set of external speakers.
