I was thinking about doing that with the decoder box from my video;ogic speakers but unfortunately it has spdif in and my mobo has optical out!
I have a via board and i'm planning on mounting it on a case that does not have room for a pci card so now i'm looking for other options for sound. So far it looks like i'm going to end up with a usb sb audigy card. Since i have to spend the money I want to explore all my options and I came up with this idea.
I was wondering if i could take advantage of my mobo's digital audio output and run it to a processor like this one:
(or if anyone has a better suggestion please post it)
I wonder if anyone has done something like this or what the pros and cons would be.
(search came up with nothing useful, but i could have used the wrong keywords)
