Hi !

Thanks for info.

There seems to be problems with rat sampling rate. I'm trying to  
achieve better sound quality 32/48 KHz mono and found that some cards  
produce flanger/tube kind of sound and some work better using 48 KHz  
than 32 KHz and so on...

So it's hard to make purchasing decisions.

Anyway usb/firewire is a way to go for me for better sound quality.

Any info if You decide to retest would be nice to hear(windows, linux  
alsa version...).
