HTC setup advice - Netboxx R904N
I was looking for some advice about my setup. I will list what I have then get to my question.
I am using a Win7 machine and I stream media from a Ubuntu Sever hosting all of my media. I also listen/watch media locally CD's, DVD, Bluray. I have a Bluray burner/player and a Nvidia GTX260. I use Winamp and Foobar and PowerDVD as my software. I'm using WASAPI plugin with Winamp. I have a XFI Soundcard with SPDIF out to my R904N. All my connections are digital through software. I have a 5.1 Klipsch bookshelf setup connected to the Netboxx.
I am thinking about possibly changing out the XFI to a better card or maybe a DAC but I can't seem to find one for my setup. I was hoping for a HDMI sound card so I could run a cable from the card into the receiver but it's very hard to find a HDMI sound card that is not discontinued. So then I started to look at USB dac's that would give me what I want. Still can't seem to find a match. Anyone have any ideas or do you think the XFI over SPDIF is plenty? The Netboxx can decode all the Bluray audio tracks but that won't work over SPDIF (so I've read). So I was hoping to get the max out of the setup I have. Right now is sounds great but I was just hoping to up the quality since this is were I usually listen to the most of my music these days.
thanks for the help. If I need more information let me know
