    m-audio Audiophile 192

    I am trying to get this right the first time and i am not sure what type of sound card to use with my carputer what i have come up with is the m-audio Audiophile 192. mostly b/c i have found more specs on this then any other(http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_u...e192-main.html) but i am not sure if this is too much with all the midi and Digital I/O i wont use. some one shed some light please.

    Seconded, M-Audio makes good products. I can't vouch for that specific card but it should give you good quality sound.

    thanks for the input the only thing i was wary of was that a couple places i saw said the frequency response only went down to 22-25 Hz (which probably wouldnt be a big deal) but after checking their website i confirmed it is 20-20k Hz. i am new to carputers i am all but illiterate when it comes to computers but i know what i am doing with car audio. it will be connected to a t600-4 rockford amp. running 4 rockford power components. so this card would be fine to run my audio in my car? would i need to do anything extra to the computer to make this compatible? o if you have any other suggestions as far as getting the sound from the 'puter to the amp (needs to perform at least as well as the amp) let me know. it would be greatly appreciated

    Another route all-together. With that rockford amp (used to have the same one) it likes higher voltage inputs to keep your gains lower. This has 4v RMS outputs, same as high end cd decks and is available with RCA connections. This is a much more simplistic way to connect up your amp and has amazing sound quality.

    No problem! Well, You can place your order and pay the extra fee and leave a note for them on paypal OR -and I would highly recommend this avenue- wait a day or so until we finalize the details of our group buy from hippohifi and you will get a nice discount and free RCA upgrade! We are placing a bulk order with them and it will all be organized right here on MP3car.com. Watch for a thread in the next couple days and I'll try to PM you when its up. I can't quote you pricing right now but it is going to be GOOOOOOOOD!


    Edit: O the opamp is up to you, both are very very good quality, but have very very subtle differences in their sound. Google the # of the opamp and you should find reviews, but you ca't go wrong with either..

    That is definately a great option.

    Too bad in my case I need 8 RCA Outs, so I would need 4 of these babies. Would be way too expensive.
