Can anyone describe their opinions/views/experiences with the sound quality of their HTPC's? I'm currently working on mine and haven't really had the chance to configure my settings to see if they surpass my stand alone dvd player's sound capabilities. Is sound noticeably better/worse? Does anyone have problems with hiss, cracking, digital pass through issues, or anything else. Also, what did you do to fix the problem. It's pretty much a given that picture quality can be drastically improved, but how about audio quality?

What is your current setup that you are comparing to? Do you plan on using a receiver to decode the AC3 track (which would pass-through your HTPC) or decode it onboard?

Currently using it as pass through to my receiver but don't know if I'm doing it right. My receiver says PCM digital and isn't showing the dolby digital sign so I don't know if it's decoding into 5.1 or what. The sound is ****** with a lot of hiss. Can Audigy sound cards decode 5.1?
