    Need a little advice.

    So im seriously considering a Acer REVO with a Lilliput 869GL-80NP and CarNetix CNX-P1900 power supply. I guess what im looking for is how i am going to get the audio to my amps i see it has a spdif or toslink, and have read i need a DAC or USB soundcard but wondering what one is going to make me the happiest in the long run?

    Thanks

    Thank you for that link, but still a little unsure if it is better for me to use a USB soundcard or a DAC. I guess the thing im looking for is 1. Cost ($1-199) 2. Sound Quality 3. Ease of use (for tuning)

    for low cost, analog is about your only option-- car audio digital solutions aren't cheap(there is whole thread dedicated to digital input amps-- and i don't believe i have seen any under $500..).

    i already have the amps, however i did read the thread about the amps with optical in. Ive read about 6 hours worth today about DAC and sound card options and still haven't made my mind up just yet but Ive seen some DAC's for under 200 im leaning twords.
