Re: Is there any way to get audiophile playback from WAV files off a hard drive?

I asked this question on this forum a couple of weeks ago. After some research, my understanding is that a hard-drive is a better "transport" mechanism than a CD, because a CD has a more challenging effort of turning an optical signal into electric (vs. going from magnetic to electric), so you are really reducing jitter issues. The primary problem becomes finding a soundcard that has a good digital-out. M-Audio apparently has some good soundcards to do this...
