What in your opinion is the best mid-range (up to 160) consumer available audiophile sound card? I don't need EAX or any of that rubbish. I just want to listen to FLACs.

If it matters, my platform is Linux.

I have heard M-audio delta 44 and 2496 are very nice. but has anyone done comparisons?

Sorta does since sound card drivers under can be a pain under Linux i.e Creative's Sound Blaster X-Fi cards. And also now with major Linux distros shoving that god awful piece of crap down every users throats called Pulse Audio mad.gif.

I've heard alot of good things about the Asus Xonar D2X and the Asus Xonar D1. Also there based on C-Media's Oxygen HD chips, which has good open source drivers.
