sounds good to me.
I need your opinion before i try this.
For those systems that have onboard sound,
If you remove the "sound input block" (ie. unsolder the female connecter from the motherboard) could you solder on rca female plugs? This would eliminate the need for an rca soundcard and also reduce some noise that comes from the mini stereo conector.
sounds good to me.
you could always just get an adapter from Radio Shack...
the pinouts are very simple.
I'm sure you could find out the correct connection info at www.technick.net if you wanna do it yourself.

yes, but the point would be to elminate the ministereo connection
that seems like an awful amount of work just to get two rca plugs.... USB sound would be soo much easier, and would probably sound better in the long run.

very true, i guess the question is if im to cheep to pop for the usb sound.
What's the problem with a stereo 2.5mm pin to RCA pigtail and you want to get into this trouble? Messing your mobo with soldering iron sounds risky to me. Even for such a simple thing...
If you are competant in soldering, then there is no reason not to do it. Most people don't realise this, but the mini phone jacks are terrible in cars. The contacts get all dirty, and the vibrations loosen them up after a few months.

"If one more body-kitted, cut-spring-lowered, farty-exhausted Civic revs on me at an intersection, I swear I'm going to get out of my car and cram their ridiculous double-decker aluminium wing firmly up their rump."
true, I desoldered the mini plugs off my Vibra 128. Just takes an hours time and a solder sucker tool.... then I just put a length of shielded fig 8 cable from the car to RCA jacks on the side of my case to goto my pre-amp/amp..
Project - GAME OVER :(
