    This is it, I've been silently working this over, and this is my final choice, for the b.b.4.t.b. catagory on SS.C. and Interfaces.

    Soundcards
    $69 Audiophile 2496
    $129 Audiophile 192
    $169 E-Mu 1212M
    $819 Lynx Two-B

    Interfaces
    $399 Focusrite Saffire
    $420 E-Mu 1820M
    $749 Motu 828MKII
    $999 Metric Halo Mobile I/O ULN-2
    $1,449 RME Fireface 800
    $1,700 Motu HD192


    There is no reason why people should tell me they can't get good quality, because for $69 you can have good quality, so STOP buying Soundblasters, Delta's, and other played out cards, and look into these if you want the best quality, for the price range.

    agreed, people will still look at this list and get something cheaper though because "thats out of my price range" when they could have shopped a bit and got something good for the same

    Is that Metric Halo Mobile I/O ULN-2 actually any good? But this is a nice list, now people shouldn't have excuses on why they can't afford a soundcard.

    The Metric Halo line, is the best interfaces out there.
    They're quality is par with the Lynx soundcards, and they're pre's are the hottest found in any interface IMO.
