    Hey Red --could you somehow insert this post as the second post in this thread? I want to organize it a bit better and I can't add any mroe info in the the one post. It's pretty much full. I don't know if this is in your "dark side" powers

    I don't think there's a way to do that. I've needed to do it on a bunch of other threads as well.

    I'm looking into a few new features for the forum that would take care of this issue as well.

    Perhaps taking all of this and putting it into a wiki is a good work around for now.

    One of the mods i'm looking into will take our wiki and integrate it better int the forum. it looks like it will also allow forum discussion on the articles.

    Ok just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. I'll work on putting it into the wiki.

    If I can somehow fit a Firewire PCI card into the case, would that work? Anyone know of any issues with using a firewire pci solution? I'm looking at a 400mbps transfer rate 1394a (?) card that has a smaller board. The 6 pin firewire from the M Audio Firewire would be compatible with the 1394a... right? Sorry for the questions. I think I'm going to try and get firewire in the comp so I can use the M Audio Firewire.

    I think 6 pin vs 4 pin can be convertor with a cable. The difference I think is that the 6 pin carries extra voltage supply, where if you use the 4 pin then you need to hook up extrenal power. I haven't ever really used firewire though so I can't say for sure.

    Thanks for the info. Going to go ahead and see if I can cram it all inside a Voompc case. Will report back if it all works, if I can get it to work.

    I really should amend my comments on the Behringer UCA-202, it turned out that the noise and non-working issues I was having weren't due to the card, turned out to be a ground loop causing the noise, and an issue with Road Runner causing the non-working thing! Have since fixed them up and am using the UCA-202, and am very happy with it. The headphone jack is still dodgy though, and the gold plating on the jacks is ordinary, but they are minor and don't affect my setup.

    Hi

    i have read this threat several times, and i found a lot of info, but there is just a little of info for the people like, (i think we are the most) a guy how likes music a wants to have a good sound system, but dont want something for SQ competition or anything like that. Like the pros in here do or want.

    I have been reading a lot about this a my next project is my carPC, i was gonna do exterior modifications in my car, but i always say, the exterior mods are for other people te interiors are for me .

    To my point, i see some cheap USB cards at the begining of the threat, but i want to read from the experts, the USB cards that you think are nice for a good SQ system that have good preout volt at least 4.1, EQ capability and X-over for those how want an active setup, and a price no more than US$100.

    I see the SB live, but there are others like Turtle beach and some others, but not much info about what they can do for a normal guy with a carPC.

    Hope you can help me an others.

    You're going to have a very hard time finding all of that in any card, let alone a sub $100 USB card.

    I don't even think it exists...especially not with the crossovers built in and 4.1v RCA out.

    He means 5-channel with nice output voltage, not 4.1 volts. But for all the rest.....
