I've gone through tons of information on whether I should get a sound card or just use an onboard spdif-connection on my future HTPC. Now I'm really confused I want to do the following: Connect my HTPC to my high-end Sony Reciever via. a digital-connection (spdif or toslink). I want to use following sound sources on the PC: 1) DVD sound tracks (DD, DTS, etc.) 2) Ordinary CD's / ripped CD's / High-quality MP3 3) TV sound from a Hauppauge PVR-250 capture card. Is there any point in spending money on a high quality soundcard in this setup ? I've also seen some talk about onboard spdif connections being upsampled to 48 Khz, but can't figure if/how this will affect me ! Any pointers ?
