Digital Audio into Laptop for Recording

I'm considering a DAC (Musical Fidelity M1SDAC) that will allow me to integrate my phono into my system since it has analog inputs. It can also serve as an ADC with the phono input converted and output via its optical or coax digital outs. Question is, how do I route that digital signal into my laptop cleanly (eg, not through the mic input)? I don't see anything to convert optical or coax to USB and other units are ADC units themselves.

Thanks for ideas........

Well, I'm making some progress looking at audio interfaces that are designed for musician recording on a computer. Two by M-Audio. One that has coax spdif in and firewire out (M-Audio Firewire Solo), the other with toslink in and usb out (M-Track Plus).

Any reason to choose usb over firewire or vice versa for the computer input in terms of sound quality?

I'm still trying to find out from the manufacturer if these units would do any processing (bad) or allow pass through (good).
