    I already have a badass speaker setup in my car.
    2x10" sub
    rockford 6x9" rear
    original 4x6" front (this is my weak point)

    Velocity 4 channel amplifier
    Rockford 2 channel amplifier

    I will connect the outputs from the ddts to my amps.
    I have not thougt about the center channel, but i think I'll wait with that.

    Here is a test of the ddts-100

    I talked to Creative today.
    They told me that the DDTS 100 is 16V AC!!!
    bad!!
    It wasn't autsostart either.

    So now I have to think of something else.

    If i go with a Audigy 2 NX I have to get 5v DC, do you think the ITPS is enough?

    Please give me advice!!
    The 5.1 onboard EPIA M1000 is to buggy and has a lot of interference in my car.

    Thats too bad, That creative product looked promising. Anyways i was looking at the Audigy but the problem is that it is USB. And will chew through the 1ghz Nehamia processor. Thats why you should either go for the PCI version or an external DSP.

    Atleast this was the conclusion that i was faced with after researching it on this forum. To tell you the truth i would rather just purchase the audigy and call it day. It is only 100 bucks or so as oposed to the 300 bucks for the external digital signal processor.

    I am going to go

    I think that the extigy has it's own processor, so it doesn't take so much cpu from the computer.
    I've heard you can use it as a stand alone DSP.
    but it's a little bit to expensive I think.

    I think it's strange it's so expensive with DSP. You can buy a complete surround amplifier with integrated DSP and input SPDIF for home theatre for 120. Why can't they build a DSP for 50?

    Crap I am back to this thread. I should give an update.

    The Pioneer DEQ-P700 uses a friggen proprietary optical cable making it almost impossible to input digital audio from the Via. So i own one and it isn't going to work for me

    I am still searching for a complete solution.

    I hesitate on getting the Audigy or Exitgy.

    Is the VIA on-board sound that bad? What do people mean by "buggy"? If 5.1 isn't a must... ie looking for simply front, rear and sub only... is any of this trouble necessary??

    That is the thing... 5.1 sound is a necessity otherwise we wouldn't pay as much money and spend as much yime trying to achieve this.

    Also it appears that the Pioneer DEQ-P700 is not a stand alone unit, it needs a Pioneer head unit to operate it. I guess the alpine PX510, PX700 or the sherwood is the way to go

    I suppose I should have qualified my question with.... *I* don't need 5.1... Given that, is the sound QUALITY adequate and drivers stable, or is it POS?

    I hear ya.... But unfortunatly i cant answer your question. I havent gotten to the point of utilizing the Via's onboard sound. First i need to figure out which Surround Sound DSP i am going to use. Right now it looks like i am going to use an alpine becasue of the non proprietary optical input.
