Default Digital volume control with remote and optical S/PDIF


Today I realized that I for several years now had a
digital volume control laying around. I have used
the Creative Extigy external USB sound card as a
stand-alone DA converter with an optical S/PDIF
connection from my Shuttle-X computer.

As it turns out the volume control also work in stand-alone
mode (no computer connecetd) on the optical S/PDIF in/out
on this Creative unit.
I have no idea as to how much jitter are introduced doing so.
But now I can go digital all the way from CD to DEQ analog out
with a digital volume controll with remote.

The Creative Extigy is discontinued, but one can find used
items in eBay for less than 40Ä.
