Hi, this question has probably been asked in one guise or another I would have thought so I'll apologise in advance. I am looking to buy a totally new front end amd was wondering if anyone had any experience of a good HTPC based around a top end audio card, and if so any recommendations. Is there any marked improvement in sound quality the more you spend or is there a cut of point when it comes to bang for buck so to speak. I am primarily looking for sound first quality. Any input appreciated.
