i used to reccomend the delta family of cards whole heartedly but recently i've discovered the ESI Waveterminal range which imo offers more features for the money. I have the Waverterminal 192L card, which costs about the same as an audiophile, and adds extra features such as 192KHz D/A converter, 3 Stereo Outputs, Digital coax In/Out, Mic or Line in, and all the drivers you would expect (ASIO2, MME, EWDM, GSIF etc). Also has a pretty nice internal wiring system called DirectWire...whereby you can route any output of any driver to any input of any other driver through software..... for example you could route output 1&2 of the MME driver to input 1&2 of the ASIO driver and record from winamp to wavelab with no wires. ORR even better you could route outputs 1-6 of the MME driver to inputs 1-6 of the ASIO driver and do a multitrack recording of a surround sound DVD into Cubase or Logic.... lovely :cool:

I love my 2496. As for that wave termimal card, how does it do for achieving good latency? As a side note, you would need a REEEEAAAAALLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYY fast computer to run a whole project at 192khz resolution. My amd 1600+ can't run a whole project at 96khz. Also, not all sequencers, or vst instruments support that kind of resolution at this point in time.

this is true, plus you would be pretty daft to even attempt to do so with a dnb track, there's no point. However it does come in handy when mastering....
