    Soundcard Digital outs

    Hi!
    I\'m going to buy a new soundcard for use with gigasampler. How can I connect the soundcard to my hi-fi? There are rarely optical connectors on soundcards, and I need a digital connector.. Any suggestions?

    Some cards have optical digital ins/outs. One that I am familiar with with is the Mona card from Echo Audio. I believe the spdif outs from any card can be converted to optical with an external box designed for that purpose. - Doug

    Just saw a review of the \"Creative Live! Drive IR\" and that card has optical digital ins and outs on the front panel (which requires an available 5.25\" bay). $200. Other SBLive cards have worked well with Giga products, although they lack the GSIF interface.

    Fostex sells a spdif to optical converter box for around $70

    And of course bearing in mind that the SBLive digital IOs can only do 48kHz

    The TerraTec EWX 24/96 has an optical output and GSIF drivers. www.terratec.net

    FWIW, that information may be out of date. According to the online SBLive manual 32k, 44.1k, and 48k are now supported.

    On the input - the output still seems to be 48kHz only
