  • where can I find low profile sound card?

    Ive looked throughout the web and can't seem to find a low profile sound card. Im not particularly happy with my onboard sound and want to get a decent sound card but Im using a book-size pc. Ive found a low profile 3D vga card w/ TV out, I would think I could find a low profile sound card. Anyway, help would be appreciated.

    i dont know about low profile sound cards, but you should try looking around for usb sound cards. theres a bit of info about them on here, i dont know if theyre any good or not, but it shouldnt be too hard to find out.

      Look on http://www.compgeeks.com

      Bought an Aureal card on there. It's somewhat low profile, but the connectors stick up maybe a bit too far.

        Low Profile Sound Card

        Finding reliable and worth while devices for slim line cases is a pain.
        Here is a low profile 7.1 Surround Sound card that comes with the short or low profile brackets for those cases.

        Cobra AW870LP Low Profile PCI Sound Card 7.1 Surround
        [AW870LP]

        Hope that helps with your search.

          You do realize that this thread lay dormant for over three years before you resurrected it, don't you?
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

                hey scott - I may have asked you this already, but I've slept since then...lol

                those connections on the gina would require modifying some RCAs to make them work, right?

                go from a 1/4" jack to a regular style RCA....right?

                  yup. I'm actually making my own cables too. I need to go 1/4 TRS to the proprietary zapco connections. then the zapco connections to xlr. and using all Neutrik connectors (pro sound studio connectors)

                  to make a balanced 1/4 TRS to rca, you just need to ground the neg phase signal wire to the shield (closer to the rca connector) I wish i could let you know how the card ultimately sounds...but i have probably about two weekends left before i can fire it up
