  1. ASUS Xonar D1/DX
    HT Omega Striker

    I make a major note: Niether of these cards can DECODE a Dolby Digital/DTS signal, so the only input that will work is standard 2.0 PCM [any sample rate, provided your speakers can play the signal].
  2. The Asus Xonar cards you linked don't have optical input? and the HT Omega Striker appears to be unavailable in Australia also it is PCI not PCIe.
    I think I'm going to go with the Creative X-Fi Titanium PCIe, seems to be everything I need at a reasonable price and available in Australia.
    Anyone else have any suggestions or ideas?
  3. From Techreport:

    If you prefer digital connections, the DX's S/PDIF output is shared with its analog line and mic input port. A digital S/PDIF input port isn't provided on the port cluster, but the card does feature a four-pin auxiliary input connector.


    I'd assume the D1 was the same way, but you might want to check up on that ahead of time. I completly forgot the DX wasn't packaged with a SPDIF input port (though thats normal for budget cards).

    And for reasons I've long since stated, I can not and will not ever reccomend a Creative product until they get some driver stability.
