Midiman (also known as M-Audio) do a variety of PC products that keep
the analogue electronics in an external box, as well as conventional
sound cards. Try starting at http://www.midiman.com.
I use their Dio2448 which has S/PDIF inputs, both optical and coax,
which I feed from a minidisc optical output. It has analog outputs (for
monitoring, really) as well as digital outputs. It's ideal for what I
want to do with it, which is get pre-mixed stereo audio on the the PC as
cleanly as possible so I can burn CDRs and make MP3 files.
