Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (102 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Card for small studio!"
Sound: Had the 2496 for about 1 year and was happy with the sound. I decided to get a mixer and some other equipment. I noticed quiet a bit of interference (hiss/buzz) with the unbalanced connections. I saw the audiophile 192 and the balanced connections and thought it would be worth it to add to my small studio. The balanced connections did the trick and all the noise was gone. Rock solid sound at 24bit 48khz (my pc can't handle the higher 96khz or 192khz but someday it will). Very clear and easy to configure. Feature: Balanced connections was the reason I selected this card. Enough inputs for a small studio with a mixer. Ease of Use: Simple to setup (but I had the 2496 before) and it's virtually the same). Quality: M-Audio makes good equipment. No problems with the card yet. Value: I did lots of research and the product is really outstanding for the price. Manufacturer Support: Didn't really have to contact them for support by phone but the website is informative. The Wow Factor: N/A Overall: I plan on keeping this card for quite a long time. It will handle all my needs for a small studio. I currently have a 1202 Mackie Mixer/KRK RP6's and Studio Projects C1. They all work well together and the soundcard with the balanced connections allowed the sound quality to be clear and precise.
Style of Music: Pop/Jazz

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Read my review, I'm a intermediate DAW engineer, but a professional Electronics Field Engineer."
Sound: Excellent product. I have windows 7 and 64 bit DAW processing on a quad core cpu. Had to go to web sight for driver, loaded it up and have been VERY impressed. Feature: Very good versatility, when I upgrade to an audio patch panel this device will expand in versatility. Good Midi too. Ease of Use: Very intuitive interface on the control panel. The documentation could've been more straight forward, but the product IS straight forward. Quality: I'm a senior electronics field engineer and the 192 is a very well made product. Value: Excellent beans for your buck. Whether you are experienced or not, if you are serious about DAW, you NEED, not want, a good, low latency, easy to operate, excellent sounding, and flexible audio board. This is your huckleberry if you don't want to spend a pile of money. Manufacturer Support: I never used direct contact. Overall: I will probably not need an up-grade for 3 to 5 years, like when I need to up-grade computers
Style of Music: Chill
