In process of selecting a sound card for my HTPC. Please, some advice and/or commentary. Questions: Is the Delta 410 popular because of the 8 analog outs? So you can use the HTPC to decode DD/DTS, etc.? Same with the Delta 1010 -- 8 analog outs -- let HTPC do DD/DTS/etc. decoding?? Otherwise they just seem like overkill (or is it just me?) Does anyone use the audio inputs on their Delta to rip CDs? Is this a good way to rip CDs (instead of the normal way via the PCs CD transport?) Can anyone point me to information about how to use a high-quality sound card to rip CDs? If you did not want the multi-channel analog out, would you consider the DAL CardDeluxe? Would you consider the Delta 44, or Delta 66? TIA, -Anders.
