    Hey Folks!
    Is there a good external Soundcard (fw,usb,xpress)
    which runs @ os x?

    found 3 solutions, but no idea if creatives solutions got an osx driver :-/
    last hope griffins but won't use fw in this case xD

    any ideas :-/?
    won't get rid off my logitech 5.1 (no optical!)
    and won't buy a teufel decoder station (150-200bucks!)

    Unfortunately there may not be one available for OS X.

    Optical?

    If all you want is 5.1... can you maybe try mini-optical to TOSLINK optical wire to pipe your sound into a 5.1 receiver and have at it. That's what I have set up with my Blackbook and Poineer reciever; gives me 5.1 channels (though I only use 5.1 stereo for my iTunes).
