I am currently using usb as output, but have also found a HDMI switch on the net with a tos-link digital sound out. Does anybody have any experience using HDMI instead of usb? Should it make any quality difference?

I personally, think that every little bit of equipment makes some kind of difference, so maby my questione should be, has anybody tried, and was it a positive or negative change?

I am currently using usb as output, but have also found a HDMI switch on the net with a tos-link digital sound out.

I have not seen any soundcards yet with HDMI output. There are video cards coming out now with HDMI output, and I've read that they're supposed to be able to intercept the S/PDIF output (from the motherboard or soundcard) and send that audio through the HDMI. But I wonder if anyone has actually gotten this to work.

Can you be more specific as to what devices you've found using HDMI.

Thanks.
