Default Digital In/Out Soundcard.

Can someone reccomend a soundcard with with Digital Output either Coax or Optical for my Z5500 Speakers, because i just plugged in my 360 via Optical into my Z5500's and listened to music and it sounded loaaaads better i about fell off my seat .

This is the one I use..
Turtle Beach Montego 7.1 Dolby Digital Live Surround PCI Sound Card TBS-3300-01 in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

I was accually really surprised with it... for the price...
I originally had my Z-5500's plugged in with direct.. than i plugged it in with S/PDIF.. What a quality difference, and the over all volume level seemed to increase.

Its a good card IMO if your on a tight budget.

You either have to get the platinum (with I/O front panel) or buy the expensive expansion cable for the xtreme music card.

Otherwise, that turtle beach card is good. I would probably stick with creative, but they are both good choices.

O Yeh, whats compatability like with games and software ?. Does it support all the latest games and EAX 3.0 and 4.0 ect ect, or is that strictly Creative only.
