Hey guys, I have a set of sony dav hdx589w and a HTPC. I'm looking for a sound card that can give me 5.1 by 1 single cable ( SPDIF, optical). I don't have a lot of experiment about home theater system so please recommend me under 100. Thank you.

HDMI is better for this purpose actually. With S/PDIF for 5.1, the audio needs to be compressed (and there's one or two more minor details probably not worth mentioning). Just get a modern graphics card for your HTPC, and you can carry both audio and video over the HDMI.

I have the HD5770 however, I had a WDTV + and use optical cable to connect with the sony and it gave me 5.1. I wonder if there's a sound card can do the same thing.
