The 9652s RCA plugs are SPDIF ins and outs. If that's where you want to 
put your audio you have to route Out_1 and Out_2 to SPDIF -- SP.L and 
SP.R in hdspmixer: Click on the little black boxes under Out_1 and 
Out_2. Selecting SPDIF from the popup list makes faders jump to -inf. 
Ctrl-click on the faders sets them to 0.0 -- Setting the fader to 
something > -inf activates the route.

If you expected the RCAs to be analog outputs you bought the wrong 
card :$
