I've got the M-Audio Audiophile 24/96, which is similar in many ways (except it has SPDIF out rather than optical)... the DAC on the card is identical to the Terratec. I use the analog outputs to an amp (and am pleased enough with the SQ).

pbirkett has the Terratec, and I believe he uses the analog outs on his card.

I use an AOS Piccolo DAC with my Terratec EWX 2496. The 2496 was a very nice step up from my previous Audigy 2 soundcard. Using the Piccolo DAC is a worthwhile step up from using the analog audio out from the 2496. Take a look at the rigs in my sig for the details of how I use the Piccolo.

Purely out of curiosity, what improvements do you hear with the AOS DAC over the analog outs --> amp?

Tighter bass, more detail and translucence in tone throughout the acoustic spectrum, better separation of voices, more coherence in the presentation of the spatial aspect of the sound.
