5 out of 5 eggsGreat for home audio studio work.

Pros: I'm using the 1010LT with Abletone Live 9 to record and compose. A limited edition of Ableton is shipped with the card, which got me hooked on this DAW!

This card provides a lot of options for multiple inputs and outputs. The two XLR mic jacks make it easy to use good dynamic mics (Shure SM98's), although you'll need a pre-amp with phantom power to use a condenser mic (if you have a quiet enough recording space).

I've been running this card since October '09, and never had a problem with it. The built-in pre-amps are very clean; the whisper of my room fan establishes the noise floor rather than the mic inputs when recording live audio.

I have not had much experience with other higher-end types of audio cards, but I'd highly recommend this one to anyone that wants a versatile, high quality audio card for small studio recording.

Cons: Lack of phantom power on XLR mic inputs limits direct use of condenser mics.

Other Thoughts: I hope Newegg continues to carry this product. It's a great choice for anyone that wants to take audio recording and playback further than you can with more basic cards.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Quality Good Price

Pros: -96KHz output
-Multiple inputs and outputs, MIDI, and digital
-Driver Interface is very easy to work with
-XLR inputs

Cons: All of your cables will be hanging around all willy nilly from the back of your card and get tangled which is hell for anyone looking for a neat wiring job. This wasn't a big deal for me, i just grabbed some electrical tape and organized them nice.
Labels on the wires hard to read, but they are color coded by input/output

Other Thoughts: This card has served me well, and is great for any small home studio!

My Setup:
ASUS motherboard w/ 16 GB RAM and AMD Phenom II x6 Black Edition
M-Audio AV 40 Studio Monitors

5 out of 5 eggsBest sound for the Price

Pros: compare to Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD 24-bit 96KHz, this thing still blow it away, I been having it for 3 years now, the most Clean, clear, deep sound, you can hear the high, mid, bass, it's a true 24bit sound....mixer console software are simple. It's the most fast sound card for Sonar or Cubase. If you a pro and don't want to spend a lots of money, this is the sound card for you. trust me, I been testing all kinds of sound card for over 10 years now, ..Soundblaster are good for beginner and Gamer,,,,M-Audio is all about quality baby....Only pro can hear and tell the different, this sound card into your Mackie mini mixer ,,and hook you studio monitor and condense microphone into the mixer...even a cheap studio monitor will sound good ...It'll make you Dvd movie and MP3 rock....and for recording.... it's the most clean sound.

Cons: Price still the same for the last 3 years, I thought they would go down on their price, but No, it's still the same, I got it from other website for $179 3 years ago, but it's an oem version with no refund.....still it 's worth every penny...

You'll need to buy a small Mixer to with this sound card.

Other Thoughts: If they want to expand their market to the Gamer and non professional users, they need to take lesson from Creative sound blaster....Even those Sound blaster is slow and not as good , but the Console software is Awesome and you can hook up the microphone and sing Karoke, recording is a lots easier too, most kids love sound blaster, because of it's flexibility and ease of uses....IF M-Audio could meet, that demand, definitely, they will blow everyone out, because of their quality and powerful sound card...What I wound do if I was the CEO, I would create a mini analog mixer , where you can insert into the DVD or CD slot in front panel, similar to sound blaster...the mixer would take about 2 to 3 CD slot in from of the computer, it should contain everything a normal mixer have, eq,efffect, ect....if M-Audio can incorporated a mixer into a computer, I believe the sell will sky rock...

5 out of 5 eggsStop trying to record with your Creative sound card .. get this!

Pros: - Zero installation/driver issues on a Win 64 pro system.
- Ultra low latency.
- Mic pre-amps on board (and they're pretty quiet).
- Doesn't color the sound. What you hear, is what you get.
- Perfect for home recording.
- Record multiple tracks at once.
- Huge upgrade over onboard or Creative sound cards.

Cons: - Mic pre-amps can only be turned off via jumpers on the card.
- I'm not a Linux pro (nor a total noob), but I had a VERY hard time getting the drivers installed properly on Ubuntu 9.10. Not really M-Audio's fault since the Linux drivers are third party, but the company should develop their own easy install package for Linux.

Other Thoughts: I'm still relatively new to home recording and have done a LOT of trial and error. The guy at my local music store told me to get this card from the start. I made the mistake of ignoring him and thinking I could piece together a decent home recording system using a nice used Creative ASIO card. Nope. The ASIO drivers for both Creative and Asus brand cards are total junk. They never gave me the ultra low latency I needed unless I used ASIO4ALL. I got tired of workarounds. I caved in and bought the Delta 1010LT. Well worth the money. Zero headaches in Win 7 64 Pro. I also bought the M-Audio AV40 monitors to go with it. Incredible sound. My mixes have really improved since I can now accurately hear the true mix. No coloring of the sound. If you get this card, make sure you buy the proper splitter cable to connect to your speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsHIGHLY USEFUL CARD!

Pros: This card is great for recording and more. I have had mine for over five years. Used it on XP and VISTA (64).
The M-audio site has great support and drivers. Works flawlessly.
I've used it primarily for recording. It also is great for midi. Playback....Whatever! Now I use it to run my Keyboard through it into my usb mixer , back into the computer. Very excellent. Very clean recording(if you know what you're doing. Get it , you won't be disappointed. It is rugged too , this is the 3rd computer i have had it in. I'll never get another card.

Cons: Absolutely NONE!

5 out of 5 eggsM-AUDIO Delta 1010LT PCI

Pros: Easily installed. Sounds incredible. It's loads of fun! Works flawlessly with Ableton Live, Cakewalk Sonar, Coll Edit 2000, and everything else. It has mic pres.

Cons: Short cables. The gui has been altered since the manual was printed, leading to some confusion. The bass control has been stripped from the gui.

Other Thoughts: I don't want to monkey around with usb or firewire - I want my gear hooked up directly to my mobo. This device works very well for the price and sounds fantastic. I've owned it now for nearly 5 months and am so pleased to have graduated from Sound Blaster. This device makes recording fun again. I highly suggest it.

5 out of 5 eggs5 stars

Pros: I am a noob to M-audio products, and it look me awhile to find the right adapters that I needed to split my 3 speaker outputs into 3 pairs of left and right channels. After that though this card has been working excellently.

Cons: Challenging for noobs to setup properly, not really a con... just a warning.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to install the drivers before installing the hardware or you'll end up redoing the installation.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Studio Card

Pros: Amazing studio quality sound, No hitches in vista. Simple Installation and setup

Cons: Not enough cards like this!

Other Thoughts: I went from recording on my sound blaster X-Fi to the Delta and the sound quality just blew me away, you can hear EVERY little noise in the audio. I will never use anything but this again.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plenty of connectivity for all uses, Good latency, Awesome SNR, ASIO 2.0 driver, Control panel is pretty good, Excellent value

Cons: IDE bus mastering causes noise issues.

Other Thoughts: If you have garbled audio from this, your latency probably is set too low. Most people don't realize that there is a trade-off there. Yes latency is bad, but your audio will skip if you have it set too low. Also, there are 2 mic preamps onboard, but do not expect to use condenser mics with them... it does not provide phantom power.

4 out of 5 eggsfantastic

Pros: Great value, pretty good latency, ASIO drivers, 8ch analog, sweet SNR.

Cons: if you get noise on the card under recording, turn IDE Bus mastering off in your BIOS. It took me the longest time to figure this out. If using with a slower computer, you'll have to turn the buffering up a bit.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for the price point. I love mine!
