    The MAudio Delta Dio 24/96 sounds pretty good with opticat and coaxial out but what does the 24/96 refer to. And MAudio have another Dio sound card for £90, but it is 24/48, would this card be sufficient for HCPC. I know that Nickbull is also interested in this as he asked about the MAudio Dio 24/48 card in an earlier post of mine.


    Thanks

    Thanks Darren

    But I'm not very technically minded, what does that mean in terms of me using this audio card in my PC for home cinema with a front projector?

    Why did I know you would ask that. Unfortunately I sort of know what it all means but not enough to put it into meaningful sentences. Better sound quality is the obvious answer but you obviously want more than that. Go here

    click on news library (top left)

    click on 3rd one down "new av32R with 5.1 bypass and 192khz DACs

    In the article that comes up there is a further link which explains why higher sample rates are better. I know this is for 192 bit but the principle is still the same.

    Sorry i can not be of more help
