Hello,

Since it seems to me that SPDIF (optical) = numeric. I guess that any PC sound card with optical in will do exactly the same job ? Even the cheapest ones ? Or can some cards perfoms differently ? (Regarding quality etc.)


Thank you for information

Interesting, but I already have an "Asus Xoner Essence STX/PCI-E" and I'm satisfied with it. The only thing is that it has no optical in.
(When I order it I thought it would come with a lot more connections because I had seen images of the Asus Xonar Essence ST which has a secondary card, and this led me to confusion)

I don't plan to buy a new card for the long term, I just would like to find a cheap temporary solution to digitize my MiniDiscs in an optimal way once and for all. But I won't need the optical in after this.
That why I was asking first "Since it's numeric, will any card do exactely the same job ?"

There are used "M-Audio Delta Audiophile 192" for around 50$ and that's one of the cards I could I have bought when I bought the Asus, so I'm not decided yet but it's an option.
