    Hi,

    I am not sure if this is in the correct place, but here goes. I want to connect my PC up to my HC system and put all my CD's onto the pc and use it as a Juke box, the only problem is that the quality is nowhere near as good as my Pioneer DV757ai, is there a sound card that will give a really good sound quality when used in this way or am I stuck using my dvd player to play CD's? Many thanks for your help!!

    Cheers

    Cheers Mate! How does it compare to high quality CD players, have you compared it to a CD player?

    Cheers

    Hi mate,

    You might have better luck posting in the Computer Hardware section further down the main page... Certainly try doing a search for sound cards in there as there is plenty of good info to be had :smashin:

    That's not taking away from aliflack suggestion of the Soundblaster Audigy 2 though, it's a very nice card indeed with plenty of owners here.

    Regards,
    Iain.

    The sounblaster is good, but from the reviews i've seen is not the best for high quality sound..

    I've got an Maudio 2496, which is excellent ( DAC sounds better than my old Musical Fidelity XDAC ) and the digital output is just superb..

    The Lynx cards also get good mention round here, although they are more expensive..

    RME is worth a look too, but don't know them well myself..

    For ripping CDs you want to download EAC ( Exact Audio Copy )
    the best HQ ripping software there is, bar none. ( and freeware too )
