Sound card advise

  donki 12:41 19 Jul 2009

Hi Folks,

I was looking for a soundcard that I could use the optical out on to plug into my home cinema for 5.1 surround. I bought the X-Fi Xtreme Audio and although the sound quality is great I have came to realise that creative dont support dolby digital on their optical outs (I know I should have researched). Anyway the card only cost me £30 so I can sell it on Ebay.

Question is what is a good card for around £30 - £40 that I can connect to my cinema system via optical out for true dolby surround.
