    Whats a good, low cost Sound Card for Giga

    What\'s a good low priced Sound Card for Giga. I am interested in a simple Sound Card which has one or two analog in and one analog out. I am not interested in digital outs, maybe 2 if there are any.

    But I am looking for good sound quality.

    I\'m using the Echoaudio Darla24. It\'s simple, pretty inexpensive, and sounds great.

    There\'s many inexpensive Giga compatible soundcards with 2 Analog in/out.
    I have Delta Dio 2496 myself, and it works very well. Even better would be new M-Audio
    Audiophile. Newcomer by Echo Audio is MIA!
    It\'s very interesting card and should suit
    very well for you. Also, Terratec have new
    card: EWX 24/96!

    Hoontech SoundTrack Audio DSP24 Value
    M Audio Audiophile 24/96
    RME Digi 96/8 PST
    Terratec EWX 24/96

    -----

    Echo MIA - less than $250 retail - Soundcard not released yet
    - 2 in & 2 out (1/4\" TRS connectors, balanced +4dBu), 8 virtual outputs with DigMix, SPDIF, beta Win 2000 drivers.

    Egosys Waveterminal 2496 - $429 - A bit expensive but the new drivers coming soon will be very good.

    Hoontech SoundTrack Audio DSP24 Value - $178 retail - Soundcard release Dec 2000
    - 2 in & 2 out (RCA connectors), MIDI, AC97 codec, SPDIF, beta Win 2000 drivers. New good drivers will come soon, (MIDI, SPDIF optional)

    M Audio Audiophile 24/96 - $230 retail - Soundcard released in Nov 2000 ??
    - 2 in & 2 out (RCA connectors, peak in/out +2dBV), SPDIF, MIDI, DigMix

    RME Digi 96/8 PST - $545 - Expensive with many features for external digital connections.

    I plan to buy the Echo MIA, because of good drivers and +4dBu inputs.
    I really like the Hoontech and M Audio cards too.

    I\'m using the Hoontech DSP24 card with the ADC-DAC 2000 box. An incredibly cheap card with a fantastic sound.

    Yowza:

    This seems like a fairly active thread with lots of folks getting decent results for giga.

    Would anyone mind doing a cut-and-paste job on this survey and posting it? I would greatly appreciate it.
    the survey is:
    ---------------------------------------
    -processor (ie PII, PIII, Athalon, etc.)
    -chipset (ie BX, Via kt-133 )
    -motherboard
    -ram
    -hard drive(s) (use SCSI?)
    -sound card(s)
    -standalone use?
    -video processor/card/settings
    -BIOS settings (i.e. - turning off USB, -memory latency, etc.)
    -Midi Input Card
    -other processors
    -recording system - hardware/software
    -sequencing system - hardware/software
    -polyphony (# voices achieved)
    -click/pops? sometimes?
    -sound quality (1-10) -other problems/comments
    -midi performance (built in/stand alone/win 2k ect.)
    ---------------------------------
    THIS would help out the bottom dwelling scum like me trying to figure out what system to get BEFORE I shell out the pesetas.

    Thanks&Regards,
    jk

    PS if you want to see how the survey was born, check out the thread \"AND OUR SURVEY SAYS\". Or maybe you already checked it out (I have a knack for coining obnoxious thread names). In any case, please spill your guts

    PPS: if something doesn\'t make sense to you or youre not sure of the answer, or you just don\'t feel like digging out that information from your box, just leave it out...m\'Kay?
