    On the higher end, standalone DACs and XLR connectors could be discussed. Different types of encoding/decoding could be talked about as well, like what the difference between Dolby Digital Live and Dolby Digital EX/surround EX/plus/true HD are...

    The TRRS connector's looks surprised me when I first saw it. I was expecting something like an XLR and ended up with something that looks like a standard 3.5mm jack (with an extra ring).

    I'll probably add TRRS in at some point . . .

    I'll give some thought to the different encoding/decoding methods - that'll probably get put in with system setup . . .

    Thanks, man - I figured this would be a good sticky to have in this sub . . . I think there was one other I had discussed with Mussels after this sub was opened (before any mods were selected to corral the cattle here), but can't remember it off the top of my head :p

    Creative cards use the TRRS connectors, i bought a Creative connection lead a few years ago, and it had them on one end and phono/Rca on the other.
