Exactly. Some of the most expensive equipment you can buy in electronics would be audio equipment.

SadSoul, I had a feeling this thread was yours. You really do make me laugh, you are very persistent in your sad act

I recommend you see a therapist and perhaps if they think it is warranted try a course of medication. Talk therapy can be effective in managing your moods and so can medication.

Are you bi-polar?

Umm... oh yeah, what are you using that sound card for? Because that is not necessary for most home listening.

You are partially correct, TOSLINK can carry 24/192 but only in 2.0 it does not have the bandwidth to carry 8 channels at 24/192 HDMI however does.

Digital audio bitstream. Originally limited to 48 kHz at 20 bits. Extended to support all modern formats, except Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD, and DTS HD audio streams.
From.....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toslink

So modern toslink can now carry 125Mbps of data vs. the original 3.1Mbps, however due to licensing issues, and fear of copying due to no data protection TOSLINK is not allowed to carry DD-Plus, DTS-MA etc.
