Hello,

Since it seems to me that SPDIF (optical) = numeric. I guess that any PC sound card with optical in will do exactly the same job ? Even the cheapest ones ? Or can some cards perfoms differently ? (Regarding quality etc.)


Thank you for information

Thank you. But I must confess that I'm lost ...
Do you have so sound card name that I could consider or avoir ?

Also, if I get such a card, can I record with my usual softwares ? (I use Audacity and Sound Forge Pro.)

Do you have a PCI slot in your machine? I have the M-Audio Delta Audiophile 192, which will do what you want and works with all your current software. Sound quality is excellent. It supports ASIO as well.

I think so:


Does the card also fit in a PCI-Epress slot ?
Sometimes I get a bit confused between PCI/E and compatibilities.

M-Audio has no cards that work in a PCI-Express slot. They seem to be concentrating their efforts these days on external USB boxes, which of course is another route you could take.
