    it could be nice with replaceable opamps, but not many boards have them :/

    as i see it right now this is my priority list
    1. auzentech x-meridian
    2. audiotrak progigy hd2 (depends on quality, but replaceable opamps is definatively a big plus)
    3. asus xonar
    4. X-fi prelude (some says its nice other says it sucks?)
    5. M-audio

    if you dont mind me asking...why are replaceable opamps such a huge deal to you?

    because then i can get better/other opamps that fits my needs/ fits my system better than the stock ones...

    but ofcourse i can find a soundcard with good quality without the replaceable opamps, i will maybe go for that...

    but the reason i placed the audiotrak at 2nd place is also the price... it cost (in my country) about 70-80$ less than asus xonar, then i could use thoose money to upgrade the opamps...

    i just recieved my onkyo se-90pci from japan. looks beefy, still building my pc so no review. theres a good chance i would have bought the audiotrak had i payed more attention. i kind of jumped on the onkyo just cause i had a good feeling about it. lol. it looked stout and didn't have the bells and whistles i didnt need. check it out.

    good reading.

    it got a god review on the site your linking to, could have been fun to see the finished mod and how it sounded...

    im seriously considering to use an headunit between my com and my amps...

    i have been looking at the pioneer p88rs (last years model) what i have heard, it should have good SQ... but don't know how much that matters when i use the com for playback...

    actually i just saw an onkyo se-200pci on ebay... could be a possibility too...

    have you checked out the bloat usb dac? after reading a little about it and seeing the fully upggraded group buy it was almost enough to make me grab one.

    if i wouldn't have spent ~$400 getting a sound card and a case to fit it i would have gone that route.

    i don't understand why anyone would use a hu with a carpc (radio maybe?). not saying its wrong, i just don't get it.

    i will definatively try to check it out...

    well as i seee it, the HU could be used for:
    + radio
    + easier cd playback
    + lots of tuning on the HU too likke bass level, EQ etc etc...
    + "hardware" knob to volume up/down ( i know that there are knobs like the griffin powermate to do that, but i think a headunit will better fit with the rest)

    actually it could be fun to try an install only with carpc and then try to change it to soundcard + headunit to see if there is a difference and the maybe try HU only
