Need New Sound Card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Just built a new audio computer .  Has Windows 7 and is 64-bit so my LynxOne card will no longer work. 

 

Please suggest a quality, comparable reasonably-priced replacement card. It does NOT need 16-channel input.   Used for editing/listening only.  Open to suggestions.

 

Thank you

Is this for speakers or headphones?

 

Asus Xonar Essence STX ($180) or Creative Labs Sound Blaster ZxR.($220).

 

Next setup up would be a Audio-GD NFB-15, external DAC/amp, $255+shipping?

Used with a cheaper sound card, Asus DSX ($45) or DX sound card ($65).

Does it need to be a card? USB has just as good latency and many advantages.

 

You can just afford the classic RME Babyface. The best software. In the world. Ever.

If you need more channels. MOTU Ultralite.

Most recent. Good monitor control and headphones. SPL Crimson.

If you don't want to spend as much after all - you are already at the bottom of the RME and SPL ranges but there are less expensive units from MOTU.Also look at Native Instruments, Focusrite and Roland.
