I was looking for something like this, but i do not really know too much about these things.
Any pros/cons to this ?
The main thing is i might no be able to get in the UK.

I never used such equipment, but have you considered buying a digital soundcard? The 5.1 model from Terratec should be easy to be bought in UK and it costs nearly the price you are about to pay... just an idea.

Numbers aren't everything... that S/N ratio is probably closer to 90db in actual reality... even products like the midiman soundcards have inflated numbers.

You'd be much better off finding out what chipset is using in this product and if it is bit perfect or does unnessacry resampling. Unfortunately I do not know myself.

The chipset is a Crystal CS4630 (same as hercules game theater xp), tech info is found here http://www.cirrus.com/design/products/overview/detail.cfm?d=42

Well i stil dont know what to do i thought the ease of just being able to lpug it in and go would be good, but i should be looking for the best bit/sample rate < is this right .
