As affordable PAL PS DVD players are not going to be around for a while and as it look like my PT AE100E doesn't support PAL PS, (though my supplying dealer thinks it might do) I have decided to take the plunge and build a HCPC (panic mode) ! One of the first things I'm unsure about is the sound bit. I want to provide my Yamaha A5 amp with the same bitstream as my DVD player currently provides (ie no Dolby DD or DTS decoding). Can anyone suggest a high quality sound card that won't cost too much ? Tony.
