    Hi, I have a SoundBlaster Live 5.1 sound card in my PC, and I also have my whole CD collection of over 800 albums archived in MP3 format on the hard drive. My PC and my reciever are in the same room, so I like the convenience of listening to my MP3 instead of digging through all of my CDs. Right now, I just have a 1/8 plug, with an a adpator to turn it into a pair of RCA's to plug into my reciever. This works pretty decent, but the sound card supposedly has "digital" out. The plug for this looks like a 1/8 plug, but I'm not familiar with any type of digital 1/8 plug. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? If so, is there away to utilze this digital output, and would it give me better quality sound from the PC than the 1/8 to RCA adapter setup I'm using now? Thanks for any input.

    Chad

    Try looking into the Sonica made by M-Audio. It has digital encoding built into it.
