    If you look at the side of the box picture, you see a picture of an adapter that splits the dsub into the multiple audio inputs/outputs.

    Here is the picture...

    I was worried about that. Looked like it was just Digital/Optical Out and the DSUB.

    interesting - the card has the AUD_EXT header for connecting to a Creative I/O drive . . .

    and the headphone jack is on the PCI panel . . . odd

    nice specs, though . . . very nice for a mid-size card . . .

    but I think it's a little over-priced, ATM - especially considering the market niche it's targeting :twitch:
