    External sound cards, what one did you use and why?

    i am having trouble with a external sound card.

    I woul dlike something that i can use 24bit, usb to a 4 volt rca... however the ONLY device i can find is the logictec with 1 preamp.

    i was always told that if you chain amps off via pramp output to input will degrade the signal.

    thanks for all you help .

    Why do you want 24 bit audio? What kind of music files will you be playing?

    I use this one (16 bit) Tascam US-100. Great improvement over my TabletPC meaky soundcard. Never once gave me a headache or any ground loop issues. Great range, balanced inputs if you need, sweet sound, and no problems with hibernation/resume/hybrid sleep. Very happy.

    If you want 24bit, USB too, I would go with these: Tascam 122mkII and 144mkII or the new US-200.

    I have had great success with this http://us.store.creative.com/Creativ...B0044DEDCA.htm unit. Some talk about power on thump and other various issues but I have not experienced any significant problems with it. Just don't install all of the software that comes with it, you'll need a second hard drive to hold it all .

    i am some up of a audio buff, i made "laptop" that will interface with the car's computer.

    i then wrote a program that will pull images from the freeway camera's as i am driving to work so i can see my way

    the only thing i have yet figured out is the pc to amp .... i am not going to use a head unit, but a touch screen.

    i play rap, oldies, and some head banger *****.

    will be playing mostly 320kbps wma files.

    i have this unit, but like i said i have always heard about dasiy chaining rca ports, will lost the function of l/r and degrade sound.. so i wanted a unit that could have 3 pre-amps just like a head unit.
