Now i'm familiar with electronics but this Audio grade components is unknown ground to...

    Capacitors - general question

    F = 1/(2 * pi * C * R) saw this formula and as i understand: smaller capacity results higher freq cut off? Something like: 10uf cap would allow 20hz to pass but 22uf would allow lets say 10hz to pass? Other words that when capacity is small then there is no bass? Did i understand it correctly?

    New, need help on sound card/amp

    That kind of amp would have to have its own dac and it would be out of your price range. Another thing is that that it would have to have good dac to make better sound than this prelude card, so it would cost like 1000$ at least IMO. So 3,5mm is the way to go.

    How good is my SPDIF out?

    I would also like to know cons of your current setup versus external soundcard. from what I've heard cheap parts of your on board card specially clock (quartz) will produce jitter to outgoing signal what isn't good for quality.

    New, need help on sound card/amp

    Auzen Prelude is to be released soon. It has x-fi chip and good analog part so it's good "all round" card. As for UPS i would suggest that you first get your amp and stuff and try it out. If there are problems then you should think of something. Cables shouldn't be a problem. I mean you don't...

    Does M-Audio 5.1 have hiss?

    I think there might be some conflict with drivers or something similiar because it should be decent soundcard and should not have any auditable hiss. I have shure e5c and i have tried lots of soundcards and there is no hiss. Exept onboard cards tht have terrible hiss.
