I chose this sound card because I wanted a card geared for use as a musician.
It is connected to an Intel SE 440BX-2 (% https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index 2Cidproduit 2C29720.html%), with an Intel Pentium II 400 Mhz (http://fr .audiofanzine.com / products / index% 2Cidproduit 2C29721.html%), 3 128MB PC100 SDRAM array, and a hard disk IBM DTLA 80 GB, Windows 98 SE FAT 32 ...
I use it with my Aria Pro II RS Inazuma-V (% https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index 2Cidproduit 2C29006.html%), by connecting the headphone output of my Ibanez 10W amp IBZ3 (http : / / fr.audiofanzine.com / products / view / index% 2Cidproduit 2C19262.html%) entered on the line card.
Installation is very simple. I never noticed a conflict, the use of the manual is not necessary in my opinion ...
I use this card with Guitar FX BOX 2.6 (https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/index% 2Cidproduit 2C29776.html%) mainly. I board not yet measured the latency obtained but is probably negligible.
I use it since 1997. I appreciate the reliability of the component and the Yamaha XG sound bank Hardware is my first sound card, I paid 280Fr at the time, which is an excellent RAPORT / money for a sound card Yamaha XG. ..
With experience, I would do the same choice without hesitation ^ o ^!

Oulah! I just read the opinion Previous and I think it is a little too flattering ...
CHARACTERISTICS For audio, it's compltement Exceeds today (16bits, 48kHz max), the input / output in 3.5 bof. As against the converters are of good quality and there is little trs background noise (eg compares a SB).
RAS setup with 95/98 pound yamaha.
Recognized directly by the party but not 2000/XP XG! So note 5 / 10
Cot computer attention! No native ASIO driver book by Yamaha. The use of asio4all is possible but with a latency> 10ms, below ca cracks in all directions.
Another, the XG gnrateur does not work on 2000/XP and it will need a 95/98 (yuk yuk!) To make it work. Yamaha does the dishes most days.
Under 2000/XP, you will have the right driver that MME, WDM and DirectX. It severely limits the interest.
I have used for several years (with the era of Windows 98) and it is true that the era was not bad. But that never does a pro card. The pro c'tait the SW1000XG
I gnrateur XG-board is the equivalent of a MU10.
Today with config modern map is a strict no Intrets. It is the chipset embedded on the motherboards.
