Would anyone recommend going with a motherboard that utilizes the nforce audio? This will be on an HTPC used to listen to DVD's mp3's, satellite TV etc.


If I could save the cost of a sound card and still get good audio I'd be very happy. Would really like to use optical to go from PC to Receiver.

I have the A7N8X Deluxe MB that has the onboard audio and ended up getting a Maudio DiO. I was planning on using this for recording satellite to my hard drive. I was never able to get it to work correctly.


IMHO I would not depend on the onboard audio entirely. When I played the WMP9 (HD) version of "The Terminator" I used the onboard audio. It works out that sometimes I would use it, but most of the time I used the Maudio DiO.

I wanted something that I could run my audio from my satellite receiver via toslink.

I have been very happy with the A7N8x onboard audio. It replaced 2 separate soundcards I had used previously.

Onboard has come a long ways.

I'm quite happy with the onboard S/PDIF on my MSI Nforce2 (I forget the model). I haven't used the analog outputs much at all, and the line in gets fed from the TV tuner.

I have the A7N8X Deluxe MB. I mostly use the Coax in and out to my Denon receiver but when I do use the analog in/out for PVR. I have also measured it with Rightmark 5.1. It's not bad.
