the 3,5 mm line in jack on the sound card expects an analog signal, but the S/PDIF signal is digital. In order to use the HD500's S/PDIF you need a digital input (coaxial) on your soundcard.

Thank you. I suspected that was the issue, but I needed someone to confirm before I go ahead and order something that would suffice.
So, a follow-up question:
If I have a sound card that accepts a digital optical input, could I get something like this
and make it work? Or is it better to just buy another sound card with the coaxial input? If so could you point me to one? I'm not really sure how they would look, as I've seen both analog and digital RCA thrown both left and right in specifications...
