can't believe the evolution in htpc techonology from just a year ago! and i can't wait to get started building mine. hoping for a little input from the trail-blazers.


1. have htpc audio capabilities evolved as much as video? i was wondering if anyone is using their htpc as a preamp/audio processor? is there audio processing software now available for sound cards that allows for different surround sounds (dolby digital, dolby ex, dolby pro-logic II, dts, dtses, dts es, etc.?) thx?. i see that many of the newer sound cards have 5.1/7.1 channel outputs - can the be connected directly to amps or must they be run through an a/v receiver (assuming one is not planning on using pc speakers)? if this is not the case, is this something that is on the near horizon?


i am sure that you can tell that i am not exactly an audiophile, so please be gentle and thanks for any input.
