Question USB Audio

Does anyone run an external (USB) sound card for SPDIF out on a client?

I'm setting up a new client PC that is a very small form-factor, with only stereo audio. I have in the past run an MVP with Coaxial Digital audio and was very happy with that setup, so I would like to recreate it on my new client.

I was looking at something like this startech

But i thought i would check in first, are there are problems with USB audio or SPDIF i should know about?

I use a Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro in my living room - Mainly because the PC itself is 30 feet away in a closet. Has worked great for years. If all you're going to use it for is a single SPDIF output, I see no reason for anything more than that.

Thanks Fuzzy,
Looks like the Micro has been updated to the Micro 2, and it should do the job just fine. Thanks for saving me a few bucks
