I'm still working out the kinks in my PC setup with the HR Ultra Micro DAC. I was a little disappointed I couldn't do 24 bit audio over USB, and although most of my source material is 16 bit, I've grown to like Replay Gain which is chopping off the lowest bits of a lot source material. So now I'm considering getting a PC sound card that supports 24 bit digital coax out. Any suggestions? I'd like something that comes with its own ASIO driver (currently using ASIO4ALL over USB) or at least something that works with KS on XP (KS over USB fails on my motherboard). It's for my work PC so I don't use it for gaming, and if the sound card is cheap enough IT will pay for it. Anything spring to mind?

Thanks in advance,

Ryan
