Biostar Adds B150S5 to Hi-Fi Motherboard Lineup



Although Biostar lately has been focused on their high-end “Racing” series motherboards but they have not forgotten about their Hi-Fi line which now gets an additional option in the form of the micro-ATX B150S5. Obvious from the name, the B150S5 uses Intel’s B150 chipset and supports the latest 6th gen Intel Core processors. The Hi-Fi series is focused on delivering products that have better audio performance compared to a typical motherboard but with the B150S5, Biostar also adds a multi-channel calibration software for more audio control. The Hi-Fi audio hardware itself on the motherboard is Realtek ALC-887 based with ground isolation circuitry, audio capacitors and a headphone amplifier.
