Sound card reccomendations
« on: December 07, 2002, 11:05:22 PM »
So I am going to get a new soundcard, and was thinking about getting a usb device, like the emagic 2I6 in case I wanted to get into 24 bit, but that won't be until I get the loot for a v3!  Anyway, any thoughts on this?  Should I just stick to a pci card?  Keep in mind I do almost all of my listening through the computer, so high quality is a must!

Thanks for the space

I have just been using a zoltrix nightengale pro 6, which is fine for transfers, but playback leaves a lot to be desired.

RME DIGI96/8 PST... best card I've ever owned.  It's not cheap though either.

If I could talk her into a 170 rig, I would probably set a date...well, maybe not, but it would be a great present!

I have to agree.  I use the Audiophile 2496 and have not had any problems at all.  You can get them at Guitar Center for ~$150-175...

yes, the audiophille 2496 works like a champ...have yet to have a single problem with mine, done tons of transfers.
