"A world of its kind at 16 bit resolution interface."
This thing could be priced lower cos today resolution of most cards is above 16bits. A bit outclass by its specs. And other USB cards could have been more value priced given this price. Still, its sound quality is respectably good with good AD/DA.
U get warm sound for this little semi-pro stuff. Why Not.. This thing rocks.
Could have been more inputs/outputs.
Ease of Use
Plug and record. No hassle.
Light but well built.
Should be priced below 100USD. Bit expensive for 16bit sound card.
Manufacturer Support
Good warranty for 1 year.
The Wow Factor
I have it.
