YES YES YES I too have the HDAV DELUXE 1.3 ..also with upgrade Opamps from BURSON.....Few will realize the amazing analog sound this card puts out....HDMI ....who needs it ???
And I have alot of remixing hrs under my belt with all my 2.0 files MP3 and WAV upped to WMA Pro 5.1 24/96 !!! Most of it , especially the synthesizer tracks from SYNERGY and TANGERINE DREAM are flat out remarkable !
Im doing this with ADOBE AUDITION which is very easy to insert files > remix > then export in the above mentioned format.... I am looking at turntables as I also have a large collection of virgin vinyl LPs of big band music I want to transfer to DVD or BLURAY...... Im looling at the MUSIC HALL turntable series and would appreciate your input....
Also if your software supports VST plugins try IZOTOPE / OZONE5 ....it has some really great sounding reverb and other audio enhancement tools.......
To be honest with you I don’t know that much about turntable options. I have what I have and I went with some moderately priced equipment when I bought it.
As for the Xonar it does sound good. I prefer it for movies. My preamp is a Bryston sp 1.7 and it is limited to one 5.1 analog input. I like the rca output jacks. I always hated the mickey mouse 1/8 inch stereo mini jacks on most computers. I did figure out how to get a accurate 7.1 output. Talking about HDMI I thought I needed to upgrade to a pre/pro with hdmi and I demoed a marantz sr 6006 and I liked the Audyssey but the analog through the xonar and Bryston sounded better.
For music I like my echo mona http://www.echoaudio.com/Products/Di...Mona/specs.php
you can see it has nice ins and outs too. I wonder if it’s worth the trouble to find out if recording @ 24/192 with the xonar will be any better I would have to use a mini.
I am using Sound forge 10.0 and it has some izotope pluggins I use the their resample and bit depth converter.
Patchesj I’m not doing any streaming. All that I have seen is MP3. All most people want is more songs per gig on their ipod
I’m just recording a lot of vinyl, hitting up my buddies for their old records.
