Thanks for the reply.  What are some excellent sound card with respect to
sending signals to a stereo?  I don't mind buying a great sound card; I just
don't know what I should be looking for.

Also, what exactly is "line level".  I assume "speaker level" means a signal
with enough power delivery to drive a standard 8-ohm speaker?  I'm
embarrassingly unknowledgable about this subject.  If you know of any good

How VBA rounds a number depends on the number's internal representation.
You cannot always predict how it will round when the rounding digit is 5.
If you want a rounding function that rounds according to predictable rules,
you should write your own.
