VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: The sound quality is great, as good as much more expensive cards. Feature: The breakout box is solidly built with a sturdy cable of adequate length. Quality: A well made product. It seems sturdy and could easily be used on the road for recording gigs due to it's compact size and portability. Value: Awesome value! System requirements let you use this card even with older computers to get great quality digital recordings. You can't buy a digital recorder with the quality this offers anywhere near the price. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed any support on this product because it has worked flawlessly. That's the best kind of support, not needing it. The Wow Factor: This is a great product, even if it looks ordinary, the features and quality are outstanding. Don't be fooled by fancy packaging, this may look like a plain Jane, but it's a sweetheart when you take it for a ride. Overall: I expect I'll be satisfied with this until I can afford a real digital recorder that doesn't have the quirks of Windows crashing. If you have a computer and want to record some music, this is what you need to do it with. You could spend alot more if you want, but this definitely does the trick.

Sound: professional sound.. you will not get better for the money ...alot of the cards that cost more are still not as good Feature: for this price range and sound quality you get all you need..the pros are the sound quality but the cons are you only get 4 tracks for recording at one time which is no big deal.. Quality: ive been using it since 2002 with the omni studio.. if you are a guitar player just stick the amp simulator in the spdif with out the interface and you can record great sounding music..evryone wants to know how i get my guitar to sound so good... Value: come on you can buy a sound blaster for this price if you want to make a mistake...are you a gamer or a musician,lol... Manufacturer Support: pretty good... The Wow Factor: it is no nonsense Overall: i will definitley keep this and like i said i will use this to transfer back and forth with a stand alone roland multi track recorder

Sound: pretty good sound... for the price I would say really good sound Feature: Not much to it... 4 ins, 4 outs. I have now upgraded to the echo gina 3g pci interface which I strongly suggest if you are looking for features and a low price Ease of Use: Pretty simple plug and play.. the software seems work great without problems. remember If you are recording with this you have to have a pre amp of some sort to go between the breakout box and the instrument,which is just way to many chords and clutter for my taste Quality: seemed tough... then my outputs fried Value: good price if this is all you need... If you want all the goodies in one place with less units and chords go for an audio interface.. the echo gina is about 100 dollars more with a whole lot more toys. And i hear of people having good luck with tascam interfaces for just about the same price as the delta 66. It all depends on what you need Manufacturer Support: great support at m-audio.. when I posted my problem they replied immediatly! I am going to get this fixed for a resonable price from them and keep it for a back up. The Wow Factor: It is a soundcard, not a supermodel Overall: like I have already said it is good if you don't need much.. the sound is good but by the time you get pre amps and such, more space taken,and more chords, and more money than some people new in the field may have expected to pay(thinking they would just plug this sucker in and go! wrong).

Back to Product Information
Sound: The sound quality is entirely within the professional arena. Feature: We all know that the less 'features' there are, the better with this kind of professional product. Balanced I/O, incredible sounding converters and 24-bit/96kHz operation will do for me. Some may require more than 4 analogue inputs, though. Ease of Use: Straightforward and intuitive in operation. Compare the no-nonsense Delta control panel with something like the horribly over-complicated and illegible Patchmix DSP (sorry emu owners!) Quality: This is the only part of my PC setup that has lived on unchanged through several rebuilds over the last 6 years. I expect it to still be there for years to come. Value: When I bought mine in 2001, it was a no-brainer. Today, of course, the days of PCI may be numbered and the marketplace is infinitely more crowded. Manufacturer Support: You simply won't need any with this product. The Wow Factor: The appeal of this product stems from its top-notch sound quality, rugged construction, exemplary driver support, wide compatibility and ease of use. Overall: I will be using my Delta 66 for as long as motherboard considerations will allow.

Sound: Sounds good - very clean, low latency, no crackling or popping. Feature: 4 ins, 4 outs. Pretty basic. Manufacturer Support: Support really s@@ks. Only 9-5, BAD web site. Drivers will not install correctly in win2k without assistance from tech support (instructions on web site will NOT work). The Wow Factor: Decent mid-level card once you get it working Overall: Install was EXTREMELY frustrating. Drivers/install utility really suck.
