Replacement for Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I need to find a replacement for a Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro, I was planning on getting a new one to replace my broken one but seems like you can't find any new ones for a reasonable price ~$200, and was wondering if you guys could suggest a replacement, only requirement is that is be PCI and have the external I/O hub. The card will be used for music production and recording.

any of the Asus Xonars would likely fit your bill.

Then you should be looking to recording cards.  You might be hard pressed to find a good product with an external I/O modules for $200.  You could always go USB/Firewire maybe?

Check M-Audio, EMU..Infrasonic..etc.

What operating system for your rig?  Microsoft® Windows® 6.0, 6.1 and 7.0 have a completely different audio architecture, both from earlier releases of Windows® (viz., NT 3.0 through XP), and from the Advanced LinUX Sound Architecture used by Red Hat®, Debian® and their competitors.  For a recording card using PCI 2.2, the only device meeting your specifications for Windows® 6.0-up is the Creative Laboratories® SB055A X-Fi® Elite Pro; the same company's non-E E-MU® EM8961 Model 1616 and siblings work on all other OS's.  (As of August 2012, both are discontinued by Creative Technology, Ltd., in favor of PCI-Express products.)
