Sound card suggestion,please


Active Member
Hello all,Pc novice in need of a soundcard to fit Dell Dimension 5000 desktop.I have a free PCI slot and wish to upgrade onboard sound and would like advice from more expert posters.If possible i want to use it for various things but in order of importance,1-record vinyl records etc to HDD in uncompressed quality,2-to have digital inputs and outputs,3-to pass through Dolby/DTS for surround decoding.Sound quality is the only consideration really and need not be multichannel as i am happy with stereo,but would like to experiment with surround cheaply and then upgrade if i can warrant it later.Looking to achieve this for under £100 if this is viable budget,thanks in advance,Volvofan.:)

The MAudio 2496 fits the bill nicely, and should only cost you around £60. :)
