I bought an audiophile 2496 from millenium music about a month ago and am thinking of changing it, looking for advice. Situation is, I'm currently undertaking flinging out the cd player & ripping all my discs to the computer (via the ape compressor). Am currently running via the 2496's spdif to a mf-x24k dac -> mf-a3 amp -> triangle speakers. Have a couple of probs with this set up. Firstly there aren't enough outputs on the 2496. Music goes out via spdif to the dac, but I also play a few games & these seem to be using a 22kHz sample rate hence have to go via the 2496's analogue out to a 2nd diff input on the amp. All well and good except I also like to listen using headphones (have a mf-xcans headphone amp for this) and to do so I have to switch the analogue out from the 2496. This is a pain in the ar$e to say the least. Second prob is the spdif breakout cable. Am currently using a vdh second as the spdif cable & am considering upgrading the dac sometime soon. This seems all little stupid however, given the dodgy quality breakout cable (fine I guess for the encoded dts/dd signals, but not the best of ideas for straight out wav). Anyway, after a bit of looking around, I noticed m-audio do another card that would seem to fit me much better - the delta 410. Really wanting to know if anyone has anything good or bad to say about this card. (incidently, obviously may soon have an almost new 2496 going for a knockdown price if anyone's interested).
