As long as there are dedicated vinyl people out there... who love the idea of keeping their music as purely in the analogue world as possible and the word DAC is like a scorpion bite. Then on the other hand all the masses that live in the digital/ultra-digital world and DAC rolling is like tube-rolling in the vinyl realm... there will be money to be made in the aftermarket world. The equipment is fun and addictive, but without the music... it is all jus scarpmetal :>)
It's PCI-Express... just like any soundcard is. That is a pic of the old card... sorry. It is over-priced... they also have SATA and fan filters.

Hi all... I have on the way, a lil ack! dAck! and am in need of a transport - so I thought "why not look at a PC-based solution". Thing is, as much as I can build PCs - the "hi-fi PC" is all new to me. I have on hand a lil Shuttle SN41G2 with a Athlon chip and 1GB of very nice memory. It has 1 AGP slot and 1 PCI slot available as well as on-board graphics. What do I need now to make this baby "sing" to my ack! dAck! ? I dont want to go broke on setting it up -...
I have a ack! dAck! on the way, and have read that this NEC makes a decent transport for El Cheapo. Any other (easy) El Cheapo transport options are welcomed. I live in Alabama and can pay with postal M/O + shipping. Nate
