I ordered Sennheiser HD 380 Pro headphones, which should provide rather decent sound-quality. I would like to use those headphones with my laptop which has integrated Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller. According to datasheet it supports 32-bit sample depth and and 192kHz sample rate. However, in practice this isn't very decent sound card, is it? I know that for example Echo Indigo IO sound card provides great sound quality, but it's for CardBus interface. Has anyone tested Echo Indigo IOx ExpressCard sound card? In addition, as I work under Linux environment, it would be best if the improvements and capabilities of audio quality are in silicon and not assisted by drivers.
In general, are there any sound cards out there for ExpressCard/34 or ExpressCard/54 interface which provide high-quality sound?
