Since the Chaintech AV-710 (VIA Envy24) is not made any more, what inexpensive PCI card do you guys recommend for adding Tos-Link (Optical SPDIF) to older PCs?

    For me the Asus Xonar DS does a great job. It is not the cheapest, but very good. In addition it offers realtime 5.1 dts encoding of whatever incoming source. This is nice if your amp doesn't have PrologicII or dts.neo features.

    I bought one of these a while back for $10, but just got around to actually installing it in a build (Pentium-4 MP client). Works fine.

    Almost exactly like the old inexpensive ChainTech card. Windows Update has a driver for it, but use the enhanced Envy24 drivers for better control over optical SPDIF.
