Thanks for your reply, ujay. I'll keep it nearby and refer to it everytime I "listen" to my mp3 collections from now on. Your explanation makes great sense and could help many "listeners" like myself understand a little better. Now, could you please explain what a sound card does in the same "makes sense" not too technical way? Specifically, I'm usually confounded when I read about stuff that "bypasses the sound card" to make sound. If my computer speakers plug into my sound card, does this mean that I won't hear anything out of the speakers when I use this method? I need a refresher course, I guess, and soon. My rig will be 5 years old this Christmas, and I fear my sound system will be obsolete and unable to handle new developments. Thanks again for your help.
