UX2 sounds noticeably worse than onboard audio.

Hello, I've had my UX2 for about 2 years, and I've always used it not only to connect my guitar, but also to play music from my computer.

However, in the last few days I noticed that the onboard audio (Realtek ALC892) is noticeably better than the output of my UX2.

My UX2 outputs unclear and sometimes distorted audio, while at the same time the onboard audio is crystal clear.

It just seems wrong to me that a €200 soundcard sounds worse then the cheapest onboard audio.

Are there any problems with my sound card?

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate.

Specs: Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard, Intel 3570k, 8GB RAM.

I have disconnected any other usb devices and switched to ethernet instead of wifi, also tried different usb cable and speakers.

Driver/software updated to the latest version.
