I'm trying to decide if I want to upgrade my SBLive!.


I want to hook it up to my receiver using an optical link.

The card will be used for DVD, MP3, and TV.

I want to be able to use DTS.


It seems that the M-audio Revolution would be the best card available.

Except that it has only a coax out.

Is there any optical add on?


I could get an optical add-on for the SBLive from Creative. But based on some posts I assume I would have issues with DTS. Is this correct?

The M-audio DiO and the Audiophile both have toslink outputs. I have the DiO on order now (got a great price). The Zoltrix Nightingale Pro and the TerraTec ones have it also.

I have the hoontech add-on card for the SBLive.... Once I finally got the spdif functioning properly I have had no issues with any type of signal being passed. DD, DTS, PCM all work well.


Good Luck,

David

This is an excellent card. I paid $190 for the first one I have installed in my dedicated HT room PC and just purchased another one for $120 (retail package) for a second HTPC I am building for my living room RPTV.


BTW, what did you pay for yours?

The M-Audio Audiophile does not have toslink, just coax digital I/O.
