Before I "fork over a fortune and a half" on a new Pioneer VSX-47TX I was wandering if anybody could answer the following 2 question?


My HTPC uses an Audigy Platinum card. Will the card pass both DD and DTS signals to the receiver for decoding?


My MOBO is an ASUS A7V-266E. It looks that my "Italian" connection may be able to get me the daughter board (i.e. S/PDIF-out Module) for the above MOBO. Assuming the answer to the first question is affirmative, which of the 2 (i.e. Audigy vs ASUS) will yield the best results?



Thanks

I use an original SB-live platinum with my A7v-266E and it works ok. The onboard 6 channel audio (havn't tried any add-on to get SP/DIF, didn't know it existed) is terrible. The SB Live is 'ok' but my M-audio card in my HCPC is so much better! I've relegated my Creative card to gaming stuff only.

Just wanted to add one more piece of info:

I will be using the HTPC system exclusively (or almost) for playing DVDs.


Thanks

I am using my Audigy platinum optical out only to connect to a DD/DTS receiver.


Ok, if the SPDIF of an audio card is used, why would it make any difference which card one would use (i.e. M-audio, Audigy, Fortissimo etc)? Isn't the SPDIF just "passing thru" the signal? Are we saying that one card "passes" the signal better that an other?


TIA for the clarification

nutcase,


What do you mean by better ?

Does M-audio spdif quality is so impressing compare with SB Live! ???

What do you use for the test? CD-Audio or DVD?

Share us your system detail.


Ciao,

:cool:
