Any suggestion on the pc audio interface for 8331?

Hi all, I am thinking of using 8331 with my pc. But my pc does not have aes out. Which audio interface would you suggest since 8331 has internal dac which means I dont need to buy expensive dac to serve as audio interface.

By the way, can I buy those network audio players with coaxial digital output as the audio interface? Although it's very difficult to find those player with aes output.

Thank you very much.

I'll be trying one of the Bricasti M5 network players next week, network in, AES, SPDIF and USB out.

There is also the venerable Yellowtec USB to AES/EBU Puc2 Lite interface.
