Need : Soundcard, Micro HiFi (and Tv Tuner) , Please Help :)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Right i am in need of a bit of help, i am moving in like a month and i am needing a few things so that i dont have to spend silly money on things and what i need from this section is a good solid soundcard and Micro HiFi.

The soundcard i dont really have any requirements for as long as i can connect it to the HiFi, but i do have a few requirements for the HiFi. As it needs to have an Optical connector so that i can connect my PS3 to it and it needs to have a SD card slot and i need a way to be able to connect a TV Tuner to it (another item i need) other then that i am open to suggestions

I dont want anything too big it will be used for listening to music when i dont want the computer on or when i just want to relax thats why it needs a SD card slot so that i can play music from that instead of having to change disc every time i want to listen to something new.

As i have about a month til i move i will be able to save a bit of money but dont want to spend too much on the Soundcard, Hifi and if you have TV tuner suggestions as well that would be great currently thinking about £250-£300 for the lot i would consider going higher IF the items give good additions and features for the extra price

i will be playing my PS3, PC games and watching BluRay films (once i get blu-ray drive) so i would like something that has great sound and such, if there are better options out there them what i am thinking please let me know i dont really know that much about the audio side of things

Asus Xonar DX - this is a good sound card that you might to take a look at.
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1850 - This TV Tuner is something im considering for my own system. this one seems to get some good review on newegg so it worth taking a look at.

As for the SD slot im not quite sure where it is you want it, by your post it makes it look like you want it on the sound card which is something that not going to happen.

you'll want an internal card reader such as This or a card reader that connects via USB like This

thanks i will check the TV tuner and sound card out, sorry the post didnt make much sense, the SD Card slot i want is on the stero so that i dont have to change CDs every 5 seconds when i get bored of one album and want to listen to another.

I have found some with SD Card slots but they then lack the Optical connector that i would need for my ps3, is there any other way i could get sound to the ps3 without having to go down the optical side of things?
