I'm still thinking of getting the xonar, over my 4870 PCM sound, which is less than perfect compared to the BD on a player...
A few questions..
Can the TMT OEM version work integrated mode with My Movies? (this sucks as i just bought the retail version too)..
Does Bitstream (x64 vista) with this card, sound just like the original bitstreamed track in say a real BD player?
Which sounds the closest to the original track on a real bd player.. Bitstream or PCM from this card (and if PCM, i'm assuming the PCM from this card is better sounding than say the PCM from my 4870 ati)?
Does passing the video through the card distort the video in any way?
Finally, will i be able to do coax audio out from this card (but not at same time as HDMI out), but both plugged in.
**Does anyone have this card in a rampage II extreme.. particularly the top slot (somehow).. this is my only option for putting it on this board..
(I'll be pairing this with my onkyo 606 receiver)
Thanks in advance
EDIT: Looked at the reviews here at new egg.. some said under vista they couldnt even get bitstreaming to work.. this isnt true is it? (x64) : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829132009
