Dear Frns

I am having one good configuration laptop. I am having 5.1 HT also ( Panda) which is not having DTS and Dolby decoder. So i m not getting suround sound from my HT.
I am downloading movies through bitcomet. It's rare that i am buying/renting DVD. So i hav connected my HT to my laptop via stereo connection( as my laptop is not having sound 5.1 sound card)
I m in delima whether to buy DVD player with Dolby/DTS decoder or to buy an affordable USB Sound card with Dolby/DTS decoding, analog o/p.
Kindly help me.
If sound card is a better option that plz suggest good USB sound card( i have heared abot Xonar)
If DVD player, then kindly suggest few gud one within 5000 - 6000.

Can a sound card can give a quality equivalent to DVD palyer?

My usages is 50% songs and 50% movie

Depends...
All for DVDP. Only take a model with USB (all new models have it), that will save the trouble of even having to burn DVDs except for backup.

Any budget DVDP will do that. Lots of options in Philips, LG, Samsung, etc. Check the Philips website and others too. Costs vary from 3-4K onwards.

But if youir 5.1 speaker set does not have remote then consider a DVD p with volume control
