This is a card that offers 16 tracks PCIexpress AES AES input and 16 output tracks. It has a wordclock input and output.
It is therefore an interface between analog / digital / analog external computer.
I bought it because it is compatible linux and RME is a reputed brand. Also tested under windows where it is equally daunting.
No fuss, you just access the audio stream you can control thanks to a software mixer. It is simple, effective, transparent and sustainable. A professional tool that the price is justified.

is the sound card's high-end home RME, I use Mytek converter coupled to a 8192, it cost an arm oulala but it's beautiful, it's stable, it's versatile, it's transparent, it is material and what is a brand that has proven itself and that everyone could agree with the pros ...
Installation nickel, super stable drivers, zero crash, immediate recognition of the machine and tranquility required for RME regularly updates its drivers (which is not the case for all manufacturers)
yes I do it again this choice, secondhand found I had to buy new ... but hey, now I'm very happy with this investment.
