Not what its cracked up to be 06/26/2009
nice RCA jacks on back of card. Looks like for 2 channel audio it will do the trick.
Looks are deceiving; I have found that all my audio samples from my turn table are filled with digital burps. I have tried numerous setting adjusting the buffer and the sample rate. It gets better as I lower the sample rate but it still is not up to par. Also if you need to be able to adjust your line level input recording volume you are going to need to invest in a decent pre-amp. User manual is written based on a very old driver set. They still have 98 and NT install instructions. I am running the latest driver download from they're website and still getting all kinds of noise.
My intention for this card was to use it to convert my vinyl LPs to MP3s. I hate to say it but my cheap ESS did a better job of sampling the audio than this card did. I have a pretty serious turntable and really nice vintage Marantz receiver. When it comes to transferring vinyl you want to get the audio right the first time. Before my old Sound blaster Audigy card died it did a great job. It was an early value version. I am going to be sending this audiophile card back. Where I will look next I am not exactly sure.
