This might sound like a silly idea but, perhaps you can get a loopback 
thing happening where you use a cable with a 3mm jack at each end going 
from your soundcard's headphone back into it's line in. Then record your 
line-in while playing back the stream.

sure it's not digital (da - ad), but it's a step up from a cassette deck.
