    Well the idiot I am I forgot the voltage on the soundblaster front/rear is really low (like <1v) so my gains would be cranked the fuck up, which I dont want. This echo gina 3g apparantly has a "balanced signal" with 5.75V output, which essentially cleans it up and gives you half of that. 2.875V output. Which is fine, because my gains were previously set with a 3V out from my old HU, so shouldnt need much adjustment. But this should be a much cleaner sound without the noise. Heres how it was explained to me:

    so how is this unit? Worth the 300 or so? Basically its only 200 extra, because I budgeted for 100 bucks on sound card and I wont need one if I buy this (SC in itself anyways)

    I used to build these systems with HT recievers to use optical input, but they are bulky and I want to keep size down. Plus Ive already got 3 amps and 2 component sets + 6x9's and a sub
