I'm buying one of these


It says it has Coaxial and digital outputs, will this allow connection to a
computer soundcard?

I can't see many cards which say they have SPDIF input, mainly output.

I don't need anything high end, was thinking of the audigy type stuff.

Can anyone help with the right cable here? Is it something like -
