I'm looking for a USB sound card that has a digital pass-through (optical or coax) and a good headphone amp which doesn't need external bloatware drivers. (I'm using Windows 7/8). Any recommendations? I found the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD, but it doesn't seem to have a very convincing amp. I don't care for portability, and I'd even use two different devices, if that's possible. (Although one would be nicer of course.) It shouldn't be more expensive than $120. Thanks.
