Hi!

I am looking for high quality sound card. I want pure good sound. Nothing else. Support for games is in last place. I will use it mainly for listening to music and a little of watching movies. And maybe for occasional recording use... I have made a list of cards that i am looking:

- E-MU 0404
- E-MU 1212M
- Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1
- M-Audio Audiophile 24/96
- M-Audio Audiophile 192
- ESI Juli@
- Audiotrak Prodigy HD2
- Audiotrak Prodigy 7.1 HiFi

And card must have full Vista support. What to choose?

Thanks smile.gif

I normally would recommend one of the M-Audio Audiophile series, however, since you expressed a desire to run Vista and watch video, I'd instead recommend the Asus Xonar DX2.

However, imho, currently the best card for PC audio playback is the Audiophile 192.
