I have a creative labs external box with various inputs and outputs including 
SPDIF. It works very well. Model number: SB0270

In general, don't buy the cheapest ones. Also I have bad experience with the 
ones from Logitech. The hardware can suddenly crash if there is a buffer 
overflow, and you get all kinds of strange sounds !
