    hi, can anyone recommend a good sound card for playing itunes and ripped cd's

    I have not decided on the speakers yet, active monitors or hifi stand mounts and integrated amp.

    I have £100 or so to spend.

    Hi there,

    I am going to recommend you two things.
    The first one is a freebie program that you can download that will accurately rip your CD's to your computer and double check them to make sure you are getting all the audio at it's best quality.

    Download ExactAudioCopy here:

    If you have a small hard drive you will obviosuly need to compress your music but with hard drives being cheap for a lot of space I would really reccommend you save as wav files or a lossless file format.

    The prgram above will let you rip all your CD's.

    As for your hardware to play back your music I would reccomend the following studio soundcard..... Not as expensive as it sounds at only £50.00

    M-Audio Audiophile 2496 | Dolphin Music

    I have this card and it has phono inputs and outputs so you can also record in from other sources such as a tape player, record player, etc.

    The phono outputs can be hooked up straight to an amplifer.

    I've found this card briliant.
