MB SPDIF OUT to Digital adapter

Hello,

Trying to get digital out from the MB. The board is a TUF B360-PLUS GAMING and it has a 4-1 pin SPDIF_OUT.

There seem to be some adapters and high-definition front panel audio modules, but does not seem to be a lot of products for this setup.
Something like this would work?

Other suggestions?

Yeah, they should work. The header is a standard pinout for that. The high definition modules are different and use the HD audio header. Again, another standard header.

You mean the Front panel audio connector (10-1 pin AAFP)?

Could they be referring to some front panels that have SPDIF out outputs?

Yes, you can buy front panels with all sorts of inputs - like I said, the headers are standard. I bought a media front panel for my htpc and it just plugged into all the spare headers I wasn't using. Of course, a rear connection is better if it's a permanent connection so you don't have to live with a PC with a cable sticking out the front and snaking to the back.

How will it show up?

In the Sound panel in Control Panel?

Depends on the sound card, but it should show up as a separate audio output device with digital in the name to separate it from the analog output. Just make it default and all audio will be sent through it.
