    S/pdif built into Epia?

    Hi Folks,

    Has anyone used the dual function rca plug on the back of an Epia M10000 for S/PDIF function? My manual says I can switch it's function by shorting some jumpers on the board. Does this produce a S/pdif input or output? Does it matter? The manual doesn't say.

    Thanks

    Ok, now that I've searched, I've found quite a bit on this subject. I am looking for a way to attach my optical XMPCR to my M10000 without using a PCI optical soundcard. I positively can't fit it into where my MB is fitted. Is there such a device that allows optical input from the pcr into my board? I hve no more inputs into my amp and the analog connection for the PCR sounds like crap.

    Thanks

    that is only an output,i guess you will have to use an external audio card with digital input . i have the same board,i'm planning to do the same but with sirius radio.

    Yea, I guess so. Im coming to the conclusion that I am going to have to buy an Audigy to connect my XMPCR. I had a soundcard with optical in and out when my carpc was in the trunk, but I was never happy with the volume it produced. I tried asking some folks here how they liked the way the Audigy sonunded but they didn't answer me.

    sigh.
