Hi folks,

I am looking at using a sound card again rather than the usual onboard effort. For now it'll use a standard 3.5mm Jack to go into an older surround sound system (what I use now) and headphones. But it'll be plugging into a Onkyo TX-SR313 so I would like to take advantage of that. I'm thinking of a card that uses Burr-Brown DAC and a 24bit 192khz sample rate. ASUS Xonar Essence has me covered, but I was wondering if anyone else had any good recommendations?

Cheers

DC

Are you gonna make professional music? 24bit is used by music makers for original music proccessing, if you need that, no problem. If you just want play your favourite songs and/or play games, 16bit DAC 96kHz sample rate will be more than enough... Remember human ear is imperfect enough to downgrade sound quality a bit... That's why CD is using 16bit 44 kHz sample rate sound files...

I doubt I will record professional music, but I would still like something good enough to play the Blu-ray audio discs I have at their full potential.

Seriously, how can you still even enjoy music without a Carbon-Based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System?

Seriously, most people do not care about noise, nowadays it's in the mood to listen back the gramophone plates, which are full of additional noise, but noone cares ;)
