Designated Packer #80 posted a topic in DSP, Room Correction, and Multi Channel AudioIm almost positive that I'd have to go with the Creative Lab: SoundBlaster ZxR to hook up the 7.1 system (I also want it to have the highest quality surround sound features as well... I'm just starting out myy degree in Audio/Music Video Editing but I am making enough from my dad's Premium Cigar shop overtime hours that he gives me and I am spending nothing so that I can afford to get this equipment. I need the best audio/visiual editing software as well. (I don't need wireless speakers, but I do need the best subwoofer their is.) I want to have this Professional grade studio done by the time I'm out of college because I want to get to work on doing Awsome audio/visiual editing... I won't turn out mp3 garbage. But right now I have things covered perfectly on the visiual side of things. Anyways I just started my Degree so I really don't know what all to buy. I know a high end 7.1 Channel surround sound system, I already know that SoundBlaster is by far the easyiest to edit with, But I don't know what cables or anything else.
Can you help me decide which sound card to purchase (which will help determine the receiver I purchase)? I'm about to buy all new audio components and I want to make sure I buy the right receiver for my HTPC system; but I need to get media from the PC to this new, unpurchased system effectively. So my question - which sound card(s) can send two digital zones (preferably optical) to my receiver? The least expensive option w/o compromising data quality would be great. DAC will be in receiver. My system HTPC - XBMC Gotham Two speaker zones - 5.1 + 10 pair around the house (all wired). To be purchased - 5.1 speakers, 10 pair speakers, receiver with two optical inputs (similar to Denon AVR-X3000)...and sound card(s) Receiver will be 7.1. It'll run 5.1 for TV, then another channel for the 10 pair I'd love to know your receiver recommendations once I know how to best get the data off my PC. Thanks, -R
I have now been enjoying music in glorious surround for almost a year. I urge everybody to share good surround experiences, whether the source is SACD, DVD/BluRay, ripped or from disk or any other source. State source, way of playback and number of channels. Let me begin with my surround album from last night: Emil Richards - Joe Porcaro Allstar Big Band - Odd Men In 24/96 5.1 download from AIX Records - DVD Premium - The Emil Richards/Joe Porcaro All Star Big Band - Odd Men In Played with Decibel from internal HD on system listed below. Almost overwhelming big band experience, thanks Aix PS. This thread is inspired by Chris' thread Album of the Evening. I hope we surround connoisseurs can give the CA community a similar list of great surround experiences.
