Hello fellow audio guru, I'm a novice with inputs / outputs on sound cards and devices. I need advice on an idea I have... :stewpid: I currently have an ASUS 23.6'' LCD (VH242H I think) that has HDMI input, S/PDIF out, line in, and a green out audio port. (Assume that I have hooked the optical S/PDIF cable from my GTX 260 to the pins on my motherboard - I haven't done this yet, but I know where the pins are and have a cable) With that assumption in mind, my question is this - If I run a DVI to HDMI cable to the ASUS LCD from my GTX 260 and hook my existing Altec Lansing speakers to the line out on the ASUS VH242H LCD, will my audio be better than just plugging the Altec's 3.5mm audio cable into my mobo's green out port? Phew, sorry I'm not good at explaining my question well. (I've been studying too much today I'm fried). Something tells me my audio would not be any better, or possibly worse with the above configuration. I used to have my PS3 audio pass through HDMI to this ASUS LCD, and I ran my Altec speakers off the line out audio port on the LCD. I think my PS3 sounded better running the audio through the HDMI... but maybe I was wrong. Maybe I should just try? Any info or suggestions would be appreciated.
