    I was looking into getting a decent sound card for my laptop, ideally something that uses the Expressport as I'm getting sick of plugging external boxes into my laptop (2 external harddrives, a monitor, cooling pad, etc...).

    I was looking at the Creative Extreme Xi-Fi, and the reviews are both good and bad:

    http://www.amazon.com/Creative-ExpressCard-Blaster-Xtreme-Notebook-70SB071000000/dp/B000QRV3NU/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1231170960&sr=8-5

    Does anyone have experience with this or any others?

    Ideally, I would like to plug in my HD box into this and then output through my speaker system. My HD box has an optical output.

    No experience, but it's basically your only option so you might as well give it a shot.

    Ah I see. Well, might as well then. It's not like it will break the bank.
