Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE supports S/PDIF?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Does it have an S/PDIF out port I can connect my audio box to? Right now it is connected to my onboard sound S/PDIF out but my onboard sound sucks so bad.

I know the Xonar DG has an S/PDIF out, but I am getting one of these for free. The cable I am using is an optical cable with a red light. If it won't work I will probably sell it and get a Xonar DG.

My Audigy SE doesn't have an SPDIF connector, just to save you the trouble. On the other hand with the driver modd (sig) it sounds pretty good even if routing sound thru the 3 jacks.

There is no difference between the S/PDIF output from your soundcard and the S/PDIF output from your motherboard. Don't waste any money on a new soundcard.

Then is there any way to get better sound quality from SPDIF? My sound cards SPDIF out makes an odd noise.

Sounds like a grounding issue then. A digital signal should be identical coming from the mobo or soundcard.

There's no interference on digital connections. What application are you using that's making the noise? Have you set ffdshow to PCM and enable s/pdif? The cable it isn't faulty did you check it?

The cable is fine and so is the headset.

How can I enable those things that you mentioned?

You would only need a sound card with Digital if your onboard audio dont have DD live DTS interactive encoder for muiti channel gaming or if your getting noise thru your digital line from your onboard audio.
