    Stupid Nano-ITX question...

    I was doing some reading up on nano itx and noticed that the onboard audio is something called VIA Vinyl Six-TRAC 6-channel ACí97 Audio. Now maby its just me, but something about the "vinyl six trac" part scarres me. Does that mean that the audio is going to really suck? The vinyl part makes me thing of a record, and the 6 trac makes me thing of those old 8 trac things. So go ahead and laugh you *** off at me, do what ever, i just hope im wrong.

    The ACí97 Audio is descent, unless you have really good speakers and a nice system, then you'll notice its less than perfect. But for 99% of appz inclunding most mp3ing (as most are <200 kbps quality.) It's also a cheap, small chipset which is why it's liked by so many.
