External sound card with digital I/O

Post by Timbergreg » Sat Oct 17, 2020 7:49 pm

Hey all,
I’m new to Audacity and eager to start transferring my DATs to CDR and other storage types. I have a new Mac mini. I’ve been out of the audio world for a long time (I think having DATs speaks volumes) but have heard I can get an external usb sound card. I need one with an optical input option. Can someone recommend one to me? Cheers
