    Australia,
    I was wondering what people have heard about this sound card and if any of you use it. The reviews I have read on the net on it are fairly good so I was just wondering about it's total effectiveness and so therefore put the specs up. I would be much obliged if anyone who owns one could give me their lowdown on it. Thanks.

    The specs look good, you might want to compare it to a M-Audio/Midiman Delta 1010.

    And if you really have money to spend, take a look at the RME Hammerfall cards *drool* :D
