    Post Alternative to sound card

    Here is a device for $59 dollars that is originally designed for mini-disk recording but would work great in a car mp3 setup instead of a soundcard. This should eliminate some of the small buzz/noise that some people are still having because of the soundcard being inside the computer and open to various interference.

    Nice idea, but I think this thing is basically a converter to allow MP3s to be recorded onto mini disk which uses a different form of audio compression.
    The two arent compatible unfortunately.

    I believe it is basically an outboard DAC which converts to analog source. They also have a model that converts to TOSLINK for input from pure digital source.

    So would you not need a sound card for this to work? It could keep the height of the case down a bit.

    No, you would not need a soundcard. Just a USB port!

    Intereasting....thats what I thought. This could help cut down the height of the mp3 box dramatically. Especailly if you buy an agp riser card for the vid card. I found out the agp riser card with right angle is around 25 dollars.
