    I'm having sound quality problems with my new PC, a Packard Bell iMedia1605. I have a cable from my hifi into the line out port on the back and the quality is the same as listening through my pc speakers, ie no difference - whereas on my old PC, the sound quality was markedly superior when connected to my hifi via the same method. I've tried all the other ports, and the only other one that works is the headphone port on the front, but that too, only provides a tinny sound through my hifi speakers.

    have you tried playing something else in the stereo to see if sounds ok?
    if the speakers aren't hardwired, and one is hooked up in reverse, the sound will be hollow and tinny. (the speakers are out of phase)

    equalizer settings on the pc or hifi? having no bass, or too much upper midrange will sound tinny too

    Thanks ShavedApe - stereos working fine - just playing back a burnt cd and the quality is way above the sound I'm getting playing MP3s form my PC via cable connection. I'm using the latest winamp player and have gone through all the graphic equalizer variations with no success

    hmmm.
    is there a subwoofer output (labled 2.1 audio or LF out) or settings in the driver for a sub or something?

    maybe bad hardware, see if Packard Bell can help?
