It should be a sin to only have 1 expansion card on an ATX board
What about going to mITX and a USB DAC (ODAC or Schiit Audio Modi 2?)Not if you are planning to add other vards later, but basicaly users never add anything. I'm on mATX since 2007 and it is a good compromise.
I can't run mITX since I do hate embedded audio chipset and by extension use dedicated "PRO" audio card. Had an M-Audio 2496 with my Q6600 and I'm lurking at an ESI Maya 44XTe since PCI slots are a thing of the past on most motherboard now. Budget is just not there .
Ah, nice. I can see that that is a weekend project at least.
Neat! That reminded me I have a set of Nixie tubes in a box... somewhere.
And post it in a new thread. It IS SFF related after all.Nixie tubes are cool. I'll do a shot of the subminiature tubes side by side with my EL34 tubes. The laters are for a valve guitar amp project. I'll stop hi-jacking the thread now as this is a little off-topic.
