Using a Beresford tc-7520 DAC and working fine.

RE: [Alpha] usb sound cards support for raspbmc
Can someone recommend USB Audio Card with Optical or Coaxial output what will work with Raspberry Pi on Raspbmc ?

Currently I have sound issues. Pi is connected to old Sony TV via HDMI and then receiver. Sound quality is bad due to old sony tv.

I would like to connect Pi directly to receiver.

I bought this http://www.ebay.it/itm/Turtle-Beach-Audi...dd5c#rpdId and works like a charm. Smile

It's proving a bit difficult at the moment. On the bright side I managed to make AudioEngine/external usb sound cards support configurable. Need a bit more testing and if stable you could see it merged into Release.

RE: [Alpha] usb sound cards support for raspbmc
Got some ways with this guide, no sound yet, though.
Cambridge DacMagic works nicely off laptop running ubuntu 12.04.
It also seems to get detected on the Raspi, pactl gets me the output below.

s7mx1, you mentioned to harmenzon that sound card might be muted, since it has no mute function in itself, and it works off another computer, would the muting be in the software somewhere, and if so, how do control it?

Code:
pi@raspbmc:~$ pactl list sinks
Sink #0
    State: SUSPENDED
    Name: null
    Description: Null Output
    Driver: module-null-sink.c
