I'm weighing building a desktop against the value choice Zotac Zbox 133, 134 ($400 barebone; 460 HDD +2 GB memory.) Either has blu-ray, HDMI, &c. OTOH, I can build with faster processor than Atom Ion, overall more robust and more flexible.
J. Atkinson gave so favorable a review to Asus Essence, (1/10) so I was thinking about it--cleaner less clutter than DAC, & c. But truth is that I'm not likely to make a habit of down high resolution audio files.
So either Zotac or alternate blu-ray most likely to serve as platform
for CD. If resolution on red-book is capped, does Sound Card capable of y/196 make sense.
