Hello,

I'm wonding about sounds cards with optical output. I'd like to run an
optical cable from a computer to a DAC.

I'd like to do this with an optical cable, unless someone has a better
recommendation (note, I must run this cable about 10m).

I want to move all my CD's on a hard disk and play them from my desktop.

Does anyone know a good quality card for this purpose?

Thanks in advance!

I use a Hoontech DSP24 Value with the digital extension board, now marketed
by ST-Audio. It has optical and RCA digital in/out and works with 44.1 to
96kHz. The price is below 150$.

Hello!

Try this link: http://www.frozencpu.com/snd-12.html?id=sEDGxCbH

They have a review on a BlueGears HDA Digital X-Mystique 7.1 GOLD Sound
Card - Dolby Digital Live Certified!

And a Complete review of this beast here:

It look very intersting and the reviewer seems to be in love with the
sound of this card.

Take care

Thanks for the tip.

Its a nice looking card and its not expensive.

I am considering this card:

Looks very nice, there is a local distributor.

Now I have more choices than I thought.
