Mac , genelec dsp and home theater

I am considering a Genelec DSP 5.1 sound system at my home but forwarding the 5.1 channels in digital format is a challenge.
My present suggestion setup for a preamp processor would be a Mac OSX computer with a Lynx 16 AES/EBU card. The computer software would be decoding the Dolby/Dts signal.
Would this setup be advisable ?

That's what I do.

Yes, absolutely!
I have been running the surround setup below for almost two years with spectacular results.
Lynx has a fine reputation, I'm sure you'll have great succes with any card you choose.
I would choose the Genelec 82XX series again if I had to do it all over.


I use VLC for most movies and Macgo Bluray Player for playing blurays (ripped or external drive).

I prefer dedicated software for playing music, something that buffers the file in memory:

- Pure Music - with iTunes
- Audirvana - with iTunes
- Audirvana - without iTunes for multi-channel
- Decibel - for multi-channel

Check out Computer Audiophile for more hints.

Hi Digipete! ...I'm looking for building a home theater setup with Genelec DSP speakers as surround sound system (for Dolby signals as when watching blu-ray movies). I have already 2x 8260A speakers with GLM and Prism Sound Titan as audio interface. Pioneer's BDP-LX58 is arriving soon as 3D blu-ray / disc player. What else I need and how to do the wirings? I've been looking up Pioneer's SC-LX58 av-receiver, would I need such?
