Either mixer or sound interface with XLR/TRS interface.
Like Focusrite 2i4

already explored this option but I try not to go for internal PCI-e soundcard cos my system quite old already. Right now closest only ASUS Xonar U5/U7 external USB fits but no DTS Connect I think.

I tried to install Realtek driver hack but my onboard soundcard doesn't seems to support DTS Connect and DDL even though the hacked driver correctly showed these surround options.
Creative got external one like X-fi surround 5.1 pro.
But only support for Dolby Digital Live.
Creative might have lose the license for DTS Live so there isn't one soundcard with this software.
DTS live is intended for use with supported soundcard.

Budget?
Maybe can try mixer like Yamaha AG06.
Take note, these are studio monitor speaker.
Studio monitor sound quality depend on source so poor quality the sound won't be that good.
Else you have to consider other setup like Edifier bookshelf speakers.

I've got the lsrs during the promo so anything more than $200 i suppose would be more expensive than the speakers.. best if can below $200
