ok so my friend has a problem that i have no clue how to fix. His mother is pretty rich, and she hates how big is v2000 is(8800gtx, e6600, p5k-d, x-fi plat, twin raptors, etc all watercooled) so she is making him get a shuttle (qx9650, dual 4870's, twin veloci raptors, all water cooled). Problem is thus: he is a studio producer and needs audiophile-grade sound setup (he's got a pair of stock dt770's, and his darkvoice 336i got backordered). The shuttle has no room for an audio card. So what should i tell him to do? the shuttle has usb/firewire/coax/fiber outs. but the coax and fiber outs i believe run through the onboard sound.
This is all I can really think of....
