poor (tinny and thin) sound quality from external speakers

HP Recommended
HP EliteDesk 800 65W G3 Deskto
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have tried two different sets of external speakers (one a Boston with subwoofer) and the sound is very thin and tinny. Sounds basically like the desktop's speaker simply amplified. I have used the boston speakers with multiple desktops over the last 15 years and the sound has always been very good and consistent. I can't figure out what the problem is or if there is a setting that needs adjusting. Plugged in via the headphone jack. The newer set is a usb set, but same issue. When I click on the speaker icon it is Conexant HD audio, so I would think the sound would be decent.
