    As title really. Are there any soundcards that can add a delay to multichannel sound like with some receivers do? To avoid lipsync.

    Thanks

    Yes. You can add per channel delay in the drivers of some cards (M-Audio come to mind) or software filters such as AC3Filter.

    I tried AC3filter and was very impressed, but it is only 5.1 and the author has no wish to go to 7.1., which I would like.
    Which m-audio cards have channel delay? i had a revo, but it only allowed you to set speaker distances, and this was not enough to overcome the sort of lipsync you can get with dscaler.

    Will have a look at the maudio site.

    Thanks

    Ok - yes I was thinking of "spoofing" delay using the speaker distance sliders.

    I know - just sit much further away from the speakers to increase the delay by the desired amount ;)
