Ok, here's the deal. I've just about got my dream HTPC-based cinema system built but I am REALLY struggling with the sound. I decided to ditch the receiver option and invest in a lovely NAD S250 5-channel power amp. This is as simple and pure as it gets (5x phono inputs --> 5x pairs speaker outputs) But my struggle is in identifying the ideal PCI soundcard to team with this unit. Whilst there is a wealth of 5/6/7/8 channel cards on the market, each with customisable outputs, they all seem to operate on a customisable 'stereo' 3.5mm jack basis where (for example) the centre and sub outputs share the same socket. Now call me fussy but what I (ideally) want is a high quality card with 6 analogue phono outputs which will allow me to connect directly to my power amp and active sub......oh and the card has to have the decoding ability to maximise my movie sound experience. Am I being too picky or am I simply misguided????
