    I think it's awesome. The sound is crisp, very very clean and LOUD. The drivers seem extremely stable and the control panel is really great...it has presets for tons of different speaker sets. The ASIO drivers have really made a difference in the audio editing apps I use, and you can adjust the latency of the drivers to your liking. It comes with a ton of free and trialware, too, including Reason and Ableton Live (an ACID-like program). The best thing is that it worked flawlessly right out of the box, unlike the Audigy 2.

    And this is my dilemma....M-Audio or Audigy 2.

    What type of input connection do they offer for something like a POD?

    And how does it fair as far as a multimedia card?

    There's a flash animation showing all the inputs. I assume the POD works off a line-in? As far as multimedia, it works great. I played Unreal 2 with it and it seems to support EAX and Sensaura game effects,

    Cool. I just don't want to have to build a rig with 2 audio cards. It can be done but I imagine driver conflicts let alone IRQ conflicts would be a nightmare.

    You are using XP correct?

    If I could, I'd like to use the XLR outs of the POD.

    Going to check out your link now. Thanks!!!!!

    M-Audio Revolution is my next sound card purchase

    i'll definitely use it on my LANNING system

    and thinking about getting one for my primary system as well

    i've loved my Philips PSC-706, its a GREAT sound card, but, driver support isn't there, and hasn't been for a long while

    its aging

    need something new

    OK...I read that page...impressive.

    This is the only thing that scares me:

    Analog line in supports recording up to 24-bit/96kHz
    Analog mic in supports recording up to 24-bit/96kHz


    UP TO???????

    I hate when they say this because it seems like it is dependent upon something else. I hope I'm very wrong. I would like to buy this card. I need this card.

    Another stupid question for you.

    ASIO drivers. I do not understand the concept in the latency aspect. Obviously lower latencies are better but why the user ability to adjust? I'm stupid. Teach me. All I know is that my current recording software supports the ASIO spec.
