Hi,

Currently, what would be the best audio card with a coax s/pdif input? Im in the process getting my DATs in FLAC. There are zillions of cards with optical in but my DAT player has coax out and optical in. A 24/192 conversion would be a nice add on.

Look for cards designed for professional audio recording and production - here's an oft-cited example, the M-Audio Audiophile 2496:

Another option would be a cheap coax-to-TOSLink converter box (usually around $20 USD), and then making sure that your sound card/interface doesn't resample its input.

However, why do you want "24/192 conversion"? DATs max out at 16/48.
