OK, I had to relate it to "home theater" somehow... I just joined the 20th century, and got a CD burner. All of the sudden, I feel that my ES MD deck has become obsolete over night. (Sorry Keith!) So, if I want to hook my PC up to my home theater (stereo) for lp, etc., recording, any suggestions for a PC sound card? I think that I would want RCA's in and out, and digital in and out (coax or optical). And, suggestions for places to buy one? Last "and": should I even consider a standalone stereo equipment CD recorder? (I do have a DAT deck too that I would keep, simply because DAT tapes can hold up to 2 hrs (safely).) I suppose that also with this sound card, I could use SpectraPlus or that EFT software to more easily map freq response (for my sub) too, right? (Would need a mic input too, I suppose.) THANKS!! Happy Holidays!
