   Can i not use an an external hardware DAC chip or something to do the
conversion (i am not sure about the interfacing part here). Or is this whole
idea of audio over CAT5 wont work?

   NSLU is definitely a very good option for doing something like that,
thanks for the suggestion.

But this whole mean getting a new hardware, which is wat i am trying to
avoid by exploring the prospects of sending audio over good old cat5 cables.
