    just thought id throw it out there. btw, the behringer has a spdif input. the chassis looks big but i'm sure you could hack it apart and condense it. hell, talk to veritas_forge and he could probably make a custom case for it

    And don't forget, the Behringer has a serial port and software to control settings via PC.

            how small do you think you could get that behringer if you took it out of the case? do you have a top down of all the components inside the case? do you need to have the front panel connected to have the unit work? (wont need that since i'll have a pc)

                it has a digital in... but it's an xlr connection... would this work with a digital line out from a soundblaster?

                      the owners manual states spdif input so i'd contact them before you go this route, but this link may help you:

                      or this:

                        You would need either the box linked on ebay, or the instructions in the document from RANE, as the input on the Behringer is an AES/EBU and not straight SPDIF.

                        So..what he said.

                          Thanks, Durwood. I was in the process of asking them about this when someone already posted to the forum.

                            the manual says it's straight s/pdif too though... i wonder if a simple cable would actually work.

                            i think it has something to do with the new chipsets can actually handle the lesser signal of s/pdif as well as still handling aes. I have been researching this a bit now :-)

                              If you have the money,it is more expensive then the HOSA,but it can do more:
