    Sound Blaster Live 5.1OEM

    I am hoping that someone knows simething about this sound card. It seems very reasonably priced at £27

    Does this card have 5.1 channel out and if so is it DTS as well as Dolby Digital? Does it have coaxial/optical out or both.

    Thanks

    Its fine, it has a digital mini jack out. You need a mono RCA to mini jack converter and a standard 75ohm digital coax cable.

    So it can not be used with an optical in on an amp?

    No it can't, you can get coax - optical coverters but they cost about £70.
