    As there are no internal sound inputs on the Maudio Revolution card, is there any way to get sound from the Xcard to it? My amp only has 1 coax input an I want to route all the sound to the Revolution so it all goes to the amp via 1 cable.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    You could only do it by connecting the Xcard's Analogue/PCM line out (Dolby PLS) to the Revo's line in, but this would (presumably) defeat the whole object if you wanted DDS or DTS output to your amp/processor.

    Subject to your budget/electronics know-how you could alternatively combine the SPDIF sources through a coupler at the PC end (via a x2 into x1 PCI bracket maybe, or a ready made external switch), so there's just one SPDIF output to the amp.

    That's what I thought. I bought the Revolution well before I found out about the X-card and it's PDI connection etc. I will probably take the Revo out of my system as this makes it rather redundant. I'll use the X-card SPDIF output for DVD viewing and the motherboard's analogue output for non digital source material - I'm only going to be listening to MP3's anyway.

    Cheers,

    Dave
