Hi

I am thinking of buying this mb : GA-MA78GM-S2H from gigabyte.


I mainly want it for the lossless audio, I read the threads here about this mb but havent found a straight answer regarding these issues:


can it produce lossless/truehd/dtshd through ANALOG ? I have a yamaha rxv359 reciever (which does not support HD audio), will I be able to get the lossless audio ?


thanks in advance.

The answer is "kinda". The current software for decoding of hd audio will downsample all of tracks for output of a DIGITAL track (HDMI) The stuido requirement of a protected path isnt quite kosher in their opinions. Analog out via RCA multichannel is not required to be protected. However the DigitalAnalogConverters (DACs) are not as good on a MB as they are for more consumer electronic devices. If you are rolling with analog for multichannel, think about a higherquality audio card. If you want a high quality HD audio experience, think about a digital solution. IMHO. Hope that helps.

my short version: yes, but it might not be to your liking or expectations.

thanks, but what do you mean by that?
