    usb sound card for audio tuning

    I been looking for a USB sound car with RCA's out put since I'm not runing HU in my install, I want to try to tune the audio through the computer is this a good sound card for this purpouse it support support for ASIO 2.0 I know that the voltage output on this car probably it's not high but for me it's not a big deal.

    option 1

    http://www.esi-audio.com/products/gigaportag/

    option 2
    http://www.esi-audio.com/products/maya44usb/


    Note:I try to do the tuning with and pioneer DSP and I did not like the results.So I red the article tuning via software etc. and decive try to get a usb car that support asio and try to do the tuning via the carputer. (my case is lowprofile for the pci cars that support tuning via software.

    If you go with either of those cards, they don't have ESI/audiotrack's Directwire feature which is critical. Without it you will need Virtual Audio cable software to properly route the audio.

    Do you have firewire as an option instead of just USB?

    If you do I recommend an M-audio Firewire410

    I don't have a firewire port but I can get a pci low profile one. but that firewire car is about $300 :P I wish I can get a pci low profile card with the features for tuning

    If you could find one used, the audiotrak prodigy LT is low pro and would make your life alot easier. Problem is that they were disco'd and extremely hard to find.

    Are you really married to your case? can you do a riser card and fold the card over on top of the mobo and still have it fit in your case?

    What pioneer were you using that didn't give you good results? Model? What did it lack?

    How many channels do you need?

    Budget?

    Lots of questions for ya, but there are solutions out there, just depends on what you need and if it fits in your budget.

    I been looking for it today and it's like u said hard to find (just find a 7.1 that is not low p.)

    Are you really married to your case? can you do a riser card and fold the card over on top of the mobo and still have it fit in your case?

    I did not though about that before don't know if that may work, married to my case may be :P I got a custom case made by veritas forge

    What pioneer were you using that didn't give you good results? Model? What did it lack?

    I Got the DEQ-7600 from pioneer
    I like to listen to Reggaeton/soft music/Rock almost al types of music but mostly reggaeton wich require some bass and I was not able to put bass enough be able to listen clearly what they sing. Don't know exactly how to explain in terms that you and Red GTI may use for this, but I like to listen the music I love clarity in the songs listen to every instrument

    How many channels do you need?
    I'm running one mono block amp from alpine, and one 4 ch from alpine too for the rear and front components

    Budget?
    About 100 or 150
