Xonar HDAV1.3 Deluxe: Asus HTPC sound card does Everything
I haven’t even finished the first page of their review yet, but I wanted to get this posted for everyone else. I’m hoping there’s good news inside the review…
…if you’re going to buy an external sound card, you want it to do something more than your existing onboard sound can provide, and the HDAV1.3 doesn’t disappoint: It does everything. And so do most of its competitors. What makes the HDAV1.3 unique is its support for HDCP and PAP, which allows it to output streams
protectedblocked by these technologies using HDMI, including the high resolution lossless formats supported by Blu-Ray discs like DTS-HD Master Audio (DTS-MA) and Dolby Digital TrueHD (DD TrueHD).
