If anyone can help me I just discovered flac. I dont use htpc, but i still use my pc for music.


Now I have an ati 3450 or some 3000 level ati agp card. I checked the sticky chart, but that only states i cant have 7.1 flac over hdmi.



What my question is, I currently play flac music files with winamp. I output the 2ch sound over hdmi to my yamaha rx-v661 receiver.


Is this working, or am i loosing quality somewhere. It sounds really good to me playing the songs, way better then mp3, but im wondering if i am bottlenecking the quality anywhere?



If anyone can help me it would be great.

I don't think you would be losing any quality. In fact, purists would tell you that you would be losing quality were you to attempt to output music in 7.1 channels (unless it were specifically recorded that way, which is still quite rare).
