    I know the Audiophile is supposed to be the best, but I've seen a M-audio Dio 24/48 for £99, it has Optical and Coaxial output but is only stereo, will this do the same job as the M-audio regarding S/PDIF output as this is all I am interested in.

    I thin it was on digital worlds web site.

    Cheers

    Yes, a lot of people use the DIO cards for HTPC use. They should work the same as the Audiophile card as far as DD/DTS passthough is concerned.

    Remember there are two versions of the Dio.

    The Dio 2448 and the Dio 2496

    Here is a link to another forum with some info.

    Good luck,

    Mark.

    Looks like a mornign of reading about it. I think in the end I might play safe and get a 24/96 Audiophile. Not too bothered about the Tos Link outputs, coaxial is fine for me.
