This will be the next addition to the HTPC, will clean out the pre-amp and the CD deck leaving me with HTPC (DVD/Blu-ray/CD/HDTV/Games) via this kit to power amp.
Simple, anyone have any experience yet with this or any thoughts?

Only 16 bit 48kHz via the USB. Huge oversight on whats supposed to be a high end bit of kit.

Plus I dont like the idea of my volume control being at the mercy of software dicking with the system mixer.

Good points there.... makes me pause for thought & do some more research before I leap. That's what I love about these forums.

Thanks Richms - I changed my mind on the back of your comment and now I'm going to try one of these
Citypulse DA 2.03E
Pretty flexible by the looks, can take an analogue input as well as another digital one, remote control and act as a preamp.
Be interesting to see how many people use external DAC's in their HTPC setups on these forums, please comment if you do.
I now use mine for Blu-ray, HDTV, Itunes, DVD's & some games. The internal realtek isn't really hifi, and I do not have any extra slots for an internal option + its running through a pretty nice Plinius power amp.
