    Alpine erag100, is this what i need for digital.

    http://www.ifb.pl/~mateo/car-audio/m...ec-install.pdf

    If i buy this, do i just connect the SPDIF out from my motherboard or sound card straight into this erag100 and this converts the digital signal to anlog and i can connect this straight into my amp through rcas?

    Is that right? And what is the sound quality of this compared to say the chaintech card? thank you.

    how do you plan on controlling it?

    if you look at that PDF, you must plug it into the CVA-1000 then go to one of the alpine screens (the CVA-1000 use to be sold in one box with the screen all as one unit)

    I'm not 100% on this but you might be able to use an alpine SCREEN with Ai-Net and the display function (IVAD-301 for example).....but their screens aren't VGA

    the optic input on the ERAG100 is designed for the alpine DVA5200 or 5205 dvd players....not sure if any other optic would work with it

    the era g100 is an old piece... & is the same as as era-g320, but without the control head so you will need an alpine mm head to control it... you'd be much better off getting your hands on a era-g320 that has the seperate control/display... which happens to be the best looking eq ever by the way.... but for a little more stepping up to the pxa-h 700-701 is a huge jump in control & tunability...

    okai, if i buy the era g320, can i connect my carputer to it via the SPDIF out? and this era g320 does all the DAC right? so essentialy its just like an external soundcard but with more functions, is this right?

    the SPDIF out on the motherboard is probably a digital SPDIF, right? it's not a tos-link SPDIF is it?

    I don't think that any alpine unit has ever had a digital input on it...

    they have all had rca analog inputs and tos-link optic inputs

    how would you control it anyways? ar eyou planning on getting the display for it as well?
