Hifi Link vs Sound Blaster Live 24 bit External
I'm looking for a cheap (around $50) portable audio out (to a Charlize + Attenuator) solution for my laptop and/or desktop computer. I have been searching and been looking between these two options
Creative Sound Blaster Live 24 bit External USB
They are both similarly priced. The Creative option has the benefit of spdif out for a future option of outputing to a higher quality dedicated dac. (Although I don't know how prone the digital port is to jitter or bandwidth issues)
However I'm concerned for the initial sound quality. Anyone know of a comparison or at least an account for either? Or another alternative?
Some additional notes:
-Linux compatability is highly desirable because my laptop is linux only!
-24 bit audio is more of a bonus than a necessity because I don't have any 24 bit sources at the moment.
