The Hoontech SD DB III card was designed for the SB Live cards, but will the Hoontech also work with an Audigy card? Has anyone tried it yet?

Or an even stupider question, can you connect the mini-digital output from the Audigity card to the coax digital input on the reciever, or is the voltage wrong? Soundblaster documentation and on-line info absolutely SUCKS!

Is this too simple of a question?

I have read on this forum that the voltage is incorrect off the card but if you get the line drive add-on box, the voltage is correct. The Audigy is compatible with my Hoontech DB-1 adapter, I suspect it should work with the DB-3 as well.

Thanks Pham. I haven't bought the Hoontech card yet, so the DB-1 may be the better way to go.

Cool. Does radio shack carry such cables? I may try this first before the Hoontech. What is it, just a mini-RCA cable?

Radio Shack and probably even Best Buy or Circuit City would carry it. It's just a mono female mini-to-RCA adapter. By the way, I wouldn't recommend the Audigy at this point because I haven't heard of anyone (including myself) getting DTS output to work yet.

No DTS on Audigy as far as I can tell. I measured the output of the audigy and read 1.5V. I am not sure of the SPDIF spec but I believe it should be .5V. I have the hoontech on order and will post results.
