I am currently using an NForce board with the onboard 5.1 sound system. The onboard introduces a little hiss here and there, mainly on speech so I am looking to replace it.
I really want good clean 2 channel sound with an spdif output as well for my dvd's. I really want something that does 2 channel audio for my mp3's extremely clearly.
I am not that interested in upmixing to 5.1 as I have a good receiver which offers a variety of sound stages.
Anyone have any thoughts?
