2 channel card that is heavy duty & works w/PCI interfacing

wiederholenbitte, Ebay
6 July 2012
  • Summary: This particular sound card works well in "somewhat older" PCs. It uses a PCI interface. I wanted to hook this card up to my stereo system via the computer. My intergrated sound card wound up burnning out when hooked up to my older sound system. Most likley due to an uneven resistance in Ohms. My guess ? The RCA inputs & outputs in 2 channel stereo is what grabbed my attention.

  • Summary: I needed this to cure latency issues while recording on my computer, and this product solved it. The midi connectors really came in handy as well.

Very Satisfied

  • Summary: I have been using the onboard audio (Realtek High Def audio)in my PC for playback and wanted to try a dedicated sound card. Chose this based on price and reviews. Certainly is a marked improvement and the installation was easy. Did have to download the driver from the website. Card also has the option of spdif out so I can use an external DAC...which I plan to try also. Overall...very pleased.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality

  • Summary: Thought it great until I recently comparered its analog out to the DAC on my Onkyo TX-SR876 receiver...   Although good to a point, it failed in highly complex loud music passages like the Choral movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony..... where as the volume and the number of instruments and voices increased, the 2496 could not keep the sounds seperate.... they become muddled/mixed a little muddy.
  • Pros: Compact, High Quality, Simple
  • Cons: Not the most transparent

  • Excerpt: "This was one of the soundcards used in my last college's workstations. I can only say that it does the job and it is perfect for a composer who is using midi as their main composing tool. The best thing about it is that you can edit audio in your DAW at 96KHz/24 bit, which is pretty handy for basic mixdowns and other small scale productions. If you are looking for a big front end recording setup, then this is useless... It is pretty much obvious that ...

Solide Einsteiger-Audiokarte

  • Summary: Ett bra ljudkort som börjar bli lite gammalt idag, rätt krävande och svårt att få igång drivrutiner korrekt! Speciellt ASIO, men ska byta till ett ESI Juli@.
