Hi,

I'm looking for USB soundstick with optical out (no analog required) - of course it should also be cheap.
It must work on ppc linux (and should on mac os x too).

Suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

The soundblaster mp3+ is USB and works in Mac, Windows, and Linux. I'm not sure if the optical/digital out works in Linux. I don't have hardware to test that. But appears to be supported. It's basically a 16bit/44.1 soundcard. Works well. I think I paid $30 for it.

Thank you!
But the optical output is essential - so it should work for sure.

Anyone other recommendations? Or can somebody confirm optical out is working?

Hi,

I have the card
Code:
Sound Blaster MP3+
and I just tried optical out to my stero and it works! I didn't know this.

I don't use this external usb card any more; I used my inbuilt powermac sound card but I think the optical out doesn't work on that (yet).


I hope this helps.

Cool! Thank you.
But badly it seems hard to get one (here in germany). :roll:

Anyone tried the Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro?

I hate to bring up an old topic, but does anyone know if the optical in/passthrough works?
