Anyone have any thoughts on a good tab or minipc with good quality audio output / dac and/or spdif/optical output? I'm prepared to add an inverter to the system anyways, to add some lcd's to the dash and rear seats without paying ridiculous amounts for the 12v gear.

What I was thinking was a smallish touchscreen on the dash, media player would probably be foobar if windows, or guayadeque if running 'nix. output to a linedriver or usb dac and then to the amp rack. Eventually I'd like to be able to support multiple outputs with active dsp and drc for the cabin.

oooo, droid headunits.. this bears much looking into.

also, I'm not a fan of wireless connections, especially when the electrical system starts coughing up massive noise off the alternators, or near the 80lb magnets in the back

I kind of want one so I can watch movie trailers while waiting sitting at red lights. But all of these look bootleg.
