I'm leaning towards getting the HT Omega Claro Plus+ 7.1 Sound Card because...

It has solid capacitors, Optical In/Out, Coaxial Out, and it is only $180.

What do you guys think?

the front panel
and elite pro uses different DAC (digital to analog converter) i think
The high-end X-Fi Elite Pro uses four Cirrus Logic CS4398 stereo DACs

and:

Xtreme Audio




Xtreme Gamer




Xtreme Music




Platinum




Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty
