Yes, as far as I remember, there is always a light on the front panel.
I had one fitted for a while... currently sitting in its box waiting for me to fit it back into an older machine.
Main reason I bought the DMX6FIRE was so I could fit my DB50 card into it. Never managed to get a squeak out of the DB50 though.
One more thing I can tell you about it - I got a hell of a lot of earth type humming and stuff and traced it down to two things; first, the casing of the front panel touching the chassis - I had to get some insulating washers to sort that, and second - the audio cable from my CD rom to the PCI card - I just disconnected this cable in the end. After that it was a nice quiet card with good sound and low latency.
Just a shame I never got a squeak out of the DB50.
wiley i have just tried the card without the breakout box and it works fine!!How does the breakoutbox get power, there is obly one cable that attaches to it and i don't think these carry power, am i wrong?

Have you yet disconnected that CD audio cable that runs 'twixt the CD and PCI card?
