Hi there,

I'm looking for a good sound card... It sounds like another thead here wink.gif but it's for a different purpose: the gaming, 5+1, 3D and so on are not mandatory for me. All I need is a great sound in stereo mode for a decent price.

Any suggestions ?

Creative only do that because the SPDIF standard is 48KHz.

>Not true. The fact that a DAC is external is not a reason for being better or worse on audio quality.

For my real day job I design and create scientific measurement instruments, these systems have seriously expensive DACs and ADCs. These systems connect to standard PCs, they are so sensitive they can detect someone walking near by in the room! Anyway because the PC is way so noisy, we even have to use opto-isolators to totally isolate the measurement system from the noise of communication grounds of the PCs. We wouldn't dream of putting the instrument inside of a PC - you have plenty of magnetic and electromagnetic fields not to mention rough ground signals.
