And yes, I get 160 Polyphony. Haven\'t heard any pops or clicks, I loaded a ton of orchestral stuff, and the max I was able to hit was 152 or something. (I haven\'t really tried pushing it too hard yet. )
I have the same MB as you ( Tyan S2390B ) and the Mia soundcard.
How do you disable the USB port from the Bios ??? I see it for Serial and Parallel port but can\'t find where the USB enable/disable . Also you mention that you disable USB, Parallel and serial port ....uh !! what do you use for mouse and keyboard ( don\'t you need those ports ??
