    Any card will work with a CarPC application....you just have to have the means to connect it.

    The 2ZS Notebook is what I was running for the first 2.5 years. You just need aboard with a PCMCIA slot on it.

    That card is also capable of bit-perfect as well via the optical out.

Now i have no idea what i'm looking at so could someone give me some pointers on what they would recommend.

    So this External Sound card thing is a real challenge unless you want to spend a lot on some kind of mixer? I'm looking at the M-Audio Firewire solo. Has anybody tried this? Are there issues with input/output line levels? It has two unbalanced inputs and two balanced outputs. Does this mean I could do HD radio and XM on the inputs? I am installing in a BMW E46 with stock amp & speakers. Stock amp expects balanced inputs, which I was going to do with a SVEN4, but the Solo has two balanced outputs. Could I use these as front/rear channels with a TRS to RCA adapter? or are these mono outputs that I would have to use as left & right channels (per software settings) and then split into front/rear. Forgive the noob questions. I'm close to doing the install, but would really like the sound solution at least designed. BTW I'm using a mac mini running XP.

    Thanks for any advice and sorry to be so long winded.

    Cool thanks. I did some rearranging and I still need to move the old ones over too.

    Uninstall the old soundcard drivers and the USB drivers for the audigy and reinstall the audigy soundcard.

    I use one with a 1.5ghz via and it's been absolutely fine for me!
