I definitely need a sound card for spdif output to my onkyo. But I dont know how good it will work with movies/music. (thats all for I need)

I need to hear some good reviews about this card.

DACs are not required for SPDIF output.

However the DACs on this card will beat the DACs on the Onkyo into dust.

You'd be best served by using the digital output for movies, and the analog output for music.

I just want to use SPDIF output so that only one wire goes from desktop to the onkyo.

So when I watch movies i want all 5.1 speakers should well and be well sent by that way from the computer. I dont want onkyo equalizers or something like dolby pro logic etc to be used. As most of the movies now are HD and have 6 Channel AAC sound.

For music, you expect me to put another wire . 3.5 mm to 2 RCA at another place ?

@coolraghav: I don't like crapping the thread, but here's my last post - you can do whatever you want. One wire will be enough. Two will be better. I don't expect you to do anything, except what you want. The analog connection will ensure you can enjoy music at very high quality, if you want to continue using the Onkyo's decoders (which are frankly, quite horrible) you're welcome to.

There is no 3.5mm on this card, it has RCA connectors. So you would have needed an RCA-RCA cable. But you don't seem to want to listen to good advice, so have it your way.

@nish: sorry for crapping your thread and the OT.

^ its cool man :)
@coolraghav -
Every pro card you get will pwn consumer audio stuff anyday.if u r looking for some analog stuff this won't offer that.it can only offer spdif for u to use with onkyo.and connecting just another wire is not what 5.1 is.for direct analog u get m audio revolution.for spdif its this card i've to offer

BUT this card is better than any consumer card.. :)
