Server sound card setup options????


How do I set up my computer for an mp3 server for multiple sources?


I will be using media center/musiclobby to select various room sources, but dont know what sound card and sound processing options to consider.


One post I saw recommended a Turtles Santa Cruz card and using the front, rear, and versa jack outs as 3 different sources. Is this the best method?


Should I use multiple sound cards?


Do you route the audio cables out of the sound card or cards to a distribution amp?


I am pretty clueless and knew the intelligentia on this board could assist me. Thanks for the help.

I use the delta 410 for my xlobby setup, it has 1 pair in and 4 pair out of analogues and a digital in and out (which I don't use). The drivers are written in such a way so that you can install multiple cards if you need more outputs, I use 2 cards for eight zones. Each output feeds a power-amp which in turn feeds long speaker cables to the relevant room.


For radio source input I use an input on the 410 fed from a regular radio deck which outputs on my local LAN via shout-cast.
