Does it do Digital Out to a multichannel preamp, and can you turn off the LEDs?

/clearly not the target audience for this

Interesting, they are taking audio cues from competitive FPS games and re-imaging enemy placement in a companion app for you smart device... so you can see them based on their audio data... kind of dirty if you ask me.

^why would you buy an expensive sound card for a digital out? Digital out is basically bypassing the sound card itself.

My thoughts exactly. Maybe he wants to out the sound to a surround set up. who knows.

Come on now guys...this is a Sabre DAC based card which sonic wise could put it above a LOT of devices out there. My LG V10 uses a Sabre 9018 DAC and surpasses, honestly, any of my stand alone DAP's.

So yeah, I'm sure it'll have good circuitry and quality components so this just might be the sound card to get.

If you need a sound card...otherwise get a USB DAC or something.
