Just wanted to introduce myself, and I have a small question.
Hey I've been lurking on the board for about a week now, reading up on this.
A carputer is something that I have been interested in for a long time, and I think I'm going to make the jump. I'm very excited, and glad that this board exists. My name Choser is used here as well as a number of car audio boards and automotive boards as well, so its a chance you know me from elsewhere. Currently drive an RSX, but it is up for sale and I should have a Mazda RX-7 within the next few months, which is where my carputer will go.
I want to have my carputer do A LOT of things, but as cleanly and simply as possible. Mainly, totally bypassing the use of a head unit. A carputer that connects strait to a Memphis Belle.
Here is my question, and, as no newbie to forums in general, I tried searching for it but a problem may arise that I dont know the specific terms to search for.
I will have surround sound in the car, (one cool thing about the rx7 is that theres a factory center channel, which was used only for imaging stock... but you can replace it with a higher quality 3.5" driver), and in the interest of sound quality, want to use spdif output from the sound card, as I don't trust the quality of the analog outputs. In reading up, it seems like many people have asked this question but I couldn't find the answer.
I want a line driver with six high voltage outputs, with a coax spdif input. With this configuration, I can put this device right next to my amp and can use really short rca cables this way. I'm not too concerned with sound quality on the digital level but I will be taking steps to ensure precision.
