You can get Creative Soundblaster XF-i Surround 5.1 USB or the Omni one for 15-30 EUR used... go for one of those. Works like a charm out of the box. Don't waste your time on Behringer UCA 202 or similar if you want 5.1 DTS/DD pass-through.

The Xonar U7 arrived today. The audio is, as far as I can hear, just as good as the Asus Xonar DX which is a PCI-express card that I used previously.

I've been thinking about this one, too - can you confirm that this is a regular Xonar U7, and not the Echelon Edition, which expressly lists the OSX support while the specs for the basic version don't mention it?

I've found this to be an excellent solution. Thanks,.....

The Creative Soundblaster XF-i Surround 5.1 USB works out of the box? It is not listed as a mac compatible device on Creative's web site and it is not listed as a device with mac driver/software available:

Could you please shed some light on how this works out of the box? I'm interested in getting this if this is the case. I have read about people getting this working but there was a fair amount of work involved.
