Internal digital interface (CD-ROM/Sync-I/O).

Announced minimum latency: 1.5 ms!

After much debate (with myself!) And reflection, reading forums comparative mags ... I ordered it, and the optional breackout xlr cable in, and therefore unlike the symmetric delivered (RCA)

9 because perfection is not of this world!


Installation on wheels, the least it is for the manual, in English or German


Drivers hyper stable, 3ms latency in recording or playback
reading of 20 + track recording with a virtual full of instrumentals and effects without any problems.


I use it for a week.
what I like most is the dynamics and precision converters, both in recording in reading (I replayed all my favorite CDs by rediscovering directly on the headphones sennheiser hd580 with my accuracy, I hear things I had ever heard!)
before I had an Audigy 2 Platinum; as a garbage compared to a roller rolls!
I've worked with friends with echo layla, without exaggeration, it is below the quality of the converters, the stability of pilot frankly I do not even talk about the edirol School of Music where I work or Hoontech dsp 2000 of a friend is just as incomparable.Conclusion the best cards ever!
what I like least is not translated the manual (but it makes me revise my English)
value for money is amazing for me! (499 euros with an option symmetrical and shipping included in Thoman) double my old soundblaster toy (just good for games !...)
