    ---From the M-Audio website. this card will work, though I believe it's really aimed at gamers/dvd's etc. Check out the Audiophile.

    well..that seems like a multimedia card not a recording card...hence teh 7.1 name. Meaning it supports 7 satalite channels and 1 subwoofer (LFC) channel. I am guess ing that the Audiophile 24/96 might be a little more $ but a lot more geared to what you want to do.
     
  4. There was mention of this card in the latest edition of Computer Music magazine. I can't remember whether it was a review or just a mention. I'll try to dig it out. They were inferring that there are about to be a rash of these cheaper soundcards on the market (M-Audio, Terratec etc.) all recording at 24/96. I'll try to dig out what it said.

    EDIT: Actually it was in PCPro magazine. Check it out: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/reviews_story.php?id=38697
