PCI-Express Audio / Sound for the Audiophile [Internal or External Interfaces]

Recommended Posts

This thread is completely dedicated to audio solutions for the Audiophile with a Hackint0sh/Hack Pro (whatever you'd like to call it). Essentially, it'd be for those willing to spend the extra investment and not be dependent on On-Board audio on the motherboard. Then again, if you want to go all out, you minus well spend it on the real thing (we can discuss this later). Anyhow, the importance of communication plays a significant role in making anything possible. So without furtherado, let's start sharing our thoughts, suggestions, what we hope to achieve, compataiblity issues, etc...



Let the discussions begin! :)
