What is a good replacement sound card??

Hey All..
I am looking for some advice as to what kind of sound card I should buy after my m-audio delta 1010lt (2nd one) bit the dust. Honestly, for the price this card has lots of features but their quality is complete $hit.
I am looking for something that gives me at least 4 in and 4 out, doesn't cost more than 300-400 and is either pci, usb or firewire. Preferably not Maudio also since they've got all the money they are getting out of this fella.

Thanks for any suggestions!
