How to boost sound in WinXP?

Specs: Windows XP, P4 / 2gb

Hi
i wish to boost up my sound coming off my onboard soundcard. It's ok through the amplified speakers but quite low when using headphones...
(obviously all sound bars are set to max, both from the music/video player and from the sound volume icon)

are there any apps which reside quitely in system tray which may amplify the output?

thanks in adv
L

No, some amplified speakers have a headphone socket that you can plug into, does yours? that would be your best option.
Back in the days when most speakers were not powered, or the ones that were cost a fortune, sound cards had a lot more output and some even had volume controls on the cards.

I got a USB sound device that has 7.1 output and the output is much better than the built-in one. Also volume control and mute.

The circuitry is designed to output a certain level of audio signal for a given digital input. If the digital signal is not at the maximun it is possible to digitally increase the signal with an increase of distortion. It is easier to amplify the analog signal with an amp/preamp.
