Although SSDR does not currently have a means of monitoring your digital mode TX audio, Windows 7/8 can help by branching the DAX TX audio to the default system sound card. 

Starting in the lower right hand corner of your desktop, right click on the speaker symbol and select 'Recording devices'.
In the resulting 'Audio device manager' window find and select  'DAX Reserved Audio TX1'  Properties.  Then navigate to the Listen tab and check the 'Listen to this device'  box. 
Note the 'Playback through..' is set to Default playback device...(  likely your MB system sound card.)

The above steps will branch the DAX TX audio to your system sound card  BUT it will be VERY LOUD...

...ADJUSTING the TX Monitor Volume....

Left click on the speaker symbol to bring up the Windows mixer panel. From the sound devices
find your system default device and left click on 'Mixer'.

Find the 'DAX RESERVED AUDIO TX1' slider and adjust the monitor volume to you taste
( while transmitting ).   I have mine set to 2
