I'd love to reply telling you that the mboard/soundcard I have in here has 
optical and coaxial digital spdif output as well as 7.1 channel analog 
output and that I believe sound quality would be just fine, but sadly it's 
an ATI chipset which means only a small tiny subset of it actually works!

Quite honestly, I'm very happy with the sound quality I get out of my 
ripped-into-FLAC CDs. I use MythTV pretty much as nothing /but/ a music 
player, and it'd be nice not to have any CD-like media cluttering up the 
place for music. And yeah, I can rip some of the DVD-A or DTS-only discs, 
but until that sounds great and I can get SACD, I'll still use my 
standalone player for that. Same goes for DVD-Video, until diskspace is 
cheap enough to rip all of THOSE, too.
