Default ASUS Sonnar STX as an analog input device?

Hello people, this is my first post; I've found you over Google. - This forum is a great one, a lot of interesting stuff here!

I have a question, and I hope someone will answer:

I needed a HiFi PC sound card, and ASUS Essence Sonnar STX cougt my attention because of the integrated Headphone Amp.

Now, except for listening, I need the card to record some old family MCs into a digital format, so the question is - could I use ASUS card for that purpose regardless of the fact that the input connector is not cinch?

The other card I had on my mind is M-Audio Audiophile 2496 which offers cinch as an input connectors, tho there is no headphone amp.

Thanks a lot!

Sure, you just need an adaptor to convert one into the other.
