Most affordable optical TOSlink sound card ever

by Kris Rehberg on 2/11/2007

This is simply the most affordable optical TOSlink sound card ever. Most suprisingly of all, and what makes this card an exceptionally good value, is that the daughter card bracket contains both coaxial and optical TOSLINK S/PDIF connectors. The more expensive Diamond Xtreme card, based on the same C-Media chipset, forces you to choose. This card gives you BOTH formats which is exceptional. Also included in the box is a TOSLINK cable which is a very nice surprise as these fiber-optic cables are virtually unheard of at local computer shops. The card requires two card slot openings but only uses one card slot. You can usually find an empty card slot opening directly above or below your video card or at the bottom of your case. Or hook the connectors on the front of your case with a rotary tool if you are so inclined.
