    WANTED! ASUS S/PDIF-SA 4-1 Digital Audio Out Bracket


    Hello,

    Does anyone have or know where I can purchase an ASUS S/PDIF-SA 4-1 Digital Audio Out Bracket? I've looked all over the internet, but can't find anyplace or anyone selling them anymore. I need it to compliment my ASUS motherboard. It allows for playback out of both Digital Out's simultaneously. Despite my motherboard only being 2 years old (and most other ASUS motherboards also including the 4-1 header for it), ASUS seemed to have discontinued it and now it's hard to come by.

    There's an older revision before the ASUS S/PDIF-SA bracket though. There's the regular ASUS S/PDIF 4-1 Digital Audio Out Bracket, but this has the removable cap on the TOSLINK instead of the newer Flip up door design. They can be found on eBay, shipping from either America or China. I bought one from America for and it arrived two weeks later, but annoyingly, the TOSLINK doesn't hold in any cables. It just falls out. I much prefer the newer flip-up door design anyway. Much more convenient.

    Thank you!

    Maybe its your cable? I have a recording studio and have a TOS Link connection, without any "door" and I do not have any problems with it. I used to have a SoundBlaster interface panel with the S/PDIF TOS link and it too didn't have a "door" and no problems.

    Hello fireberd,

    No, it's not the cable. I connected it to my old motherboard's Toslink (which has an In and Out Toslink connector with the Door design on the board's I/O. The cable connected properly to these. I also tried another Toslink cable I had with the ASUS S/PDIF bracket, but that kept falling out too.

    Thanks.

    I still would suspect the bracket. I haven't had any problems with TOS Link connections that do not have the "door".
