Default Xonar D2X Help

Hi everyone!
Im thinking about buying the Asus Xonar D2X soundcard, but so far im having major problems figuring out whether or not the Xonar D2X supports an optical connector. I mean even by looking at the connectors of the soundcard, i cant seem to see the optical socket. Sorry if this doesnt make sense, im just so confused at the moment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards

Hi,
No need to worry, just go get your Xonar D2X.
Xonar D2X has a SPDIF/TOSLINK combo so you just need to hook the provided TOSLINK adopter to the SPDIF, and use your cable to connect to your AVR and you're set.

Good luck!
