I am in the process of setting up my HTPC and I am at the point of ordering a sound card in the next couple of days. I am leaning heavy toward the Revo 7.1 due to the reviews here on the forum, but my setup is heavily designed toward the ability to play dvd-a.


Therefore this is a question that I am very interested in. It may be my desiding factor in which sound card I order. Either the Revo or SB Audigy 2zs Platinum.


What is the chances M-Audio, or even another software player being designed that does play dvd-a. Is M-Audio continuing working on a player? Maybe Cliff Watson could step in here and let us know? or at least give us a hint ;)


thanks

Clint

That was just a date change on an old web page. M Audio is not working on a DVD-audio player or drivers either.

Yes it is, but without a Creative Labs soundcard the HD audio is down converted to 16/48.

For ~$175.00 you can get the Pioneer DV563 DVD-Audio & SACD player.

PCs will likely never be able to play these hi-rez audio formats at full resolution. Why? As Cliff has stated on several occasions, The RIAA and DVD-consortium groups dont want you to be able to play them on a PC.
