Hi everyone!

I got a second hand Bifrost for use at the office, but my computer there only has the 3.5mm input. Do you have any recommendation you can give me to use it? Maybe an adapter, an external soundcard, etc.

You would need a USB to SPDIF converter or if your Bifrost has USB, you can just use a usb a to usb b 2.0 cable

Are you trying to put signal into the Bifrost or into the computer?

So, your computer only has a 3.5mm input jack, but no output ports, like USB or optical or coaxial or audio line-output ports?

You don't need an input into the computer, you need an output from the computer.

Doesn't the Bifrost have the USB card? You can send it to Schiit to get it installed, after that just install drivers into that computer and it can output digital audio via USB into the Bifrost.

I indeed need an output. My computer has USB ports but the Bifrost doesn't. Unfortunately I'm not in the US and I cannot send it to Schiit for an upgrade.

Thanks in advance for all your help. Any thoughts?
