You're missing one very important thing - the Helios only works with half-length cards and an HDX card is full length. So it would work with something like an HD Native card or a UAD dsp card.

This one is not much more and should work:

You may be able to get it a little cheaper through dealers like B&H.

It's not going to work either, because it's half length. HDX card is full length - twice as long.
