Now, i'm on a limited budget ( who isn't? and i'd like to buy an external USB soundcard with digital in.
I'd primarily use it as a home studio ( yes i know, it's not real studio quality ). I'd connect my guitar preamp ( Yamaha DG stomp ) via the coaxial digital connection.
Since i live in croatia, my choice is limited between SB Extigy and Hercules Game Theater XP ( which is much cheaper, isn't USB soundcard )
