    Hi All,
    I'm trying to set up an HTPC using an M-Audio sound card and Zplayer pro - the sound will be sent to a Yamaha R392RDS amp (5yrs old now) which is in another room (approx 10m away)

    AFAIK I have 2 options for connecting the audio:

    1. The M-Audio has both a RCA digital output, but the yammie amp does not have a digital input. Is there any way of connecting the digital output to the yamma (e.g. split out into 5:1 etc. Upside = one long cable)

    2. The M-Audio has distinct 7:1 audio outputs. These could be connected to the 5:1 input of the amp (downside = lots of cabling !)

    My thinking is that I'm going to gave to go down route 2, unless I upgrade my amp (which I don't really want to do)

    Any comments folks,
    Many thanks,
    Cheers
    Oscar

    Just buy a new amp. If you just want a digital input and reasonable sound, it shouldn't break the £150-£200 price bracket.
