I am just curious about the sound card that you guys are using to connect to the speakers for pleasure listening.

For me, I'm using M-Audio Delta 66 =)

Haha, does the Zero DAC count as the "soundcard" in this case? It should be, since technically speaking, you're referring to the Audio DAC for the computer, right? Cheers.

Creative singapore last time brought in E-MU interfaces but because market demand too low they don't bring in anymore. Most they have is the Xboard and MIDI interfaces. You either have to find from pro audio distributors or import overseas.

M-Audio is pretty decent for the price, but you want those 'up there' have to look at MOTU / Apogee.

I am using laptop most of the time, and the inbuilt realtek is really not so nice.

Any suggestion how to make it better? Is there such thing as expresscard version of sound card?

Get a portable DAC/Amp like the Govibe Petite.

Thanks Heady for your advice!

Thought of getting something of Expresscard to slot into my laptop and use it when travelling. Guess a USB Dac should also serve the purpose.

Cheers,
Mark
