I purchased the Carputer from another member here... I just wanted to see what the best way to install it was without

1. loosing my head unit
2. loosing sound quality

As far as not loosing my head unit I think I will relocate it to above the glovebox and as far as the audio is concerned I found that a minijack to rca from the computer sound card to the aux in on my head unit was easiest but I figured doing that might loose some sound quality. I thought if i took my sound card which has that external box with all those connection options on it and used the rca outputs on that box i could then connect that to the aux jack on the head unit and not loose quality of the audio. I might be complicating things by trying to add the external box but I dont want to loose audio quality when watching a DVD or playing MP3's.
