Is there a YMF71x model that is confirmed to fit a NEC XR385 without making a custom cable?

Why did you post that question in this thread?
An ESS1688 is the way to go:
ESS AudioDrive (ES1868) - a surprisingly good ISA sound card
Well, is it really that simple? Why the 1688? I had a similar question I posted here a while ago: Where can I find the differences between different ESS chips?
And ultimately the 1868 is basically the same chip as a 1688 but integrates PnP, ATAPI controllers, full duplex mono and 3D spatial sound (albeit a shitty one). The 1869 is 48KHz so less desirable due to sampling shenanigans, I get that, but it also has full duplex stereo so it's a tradeoff.
