I'm thinking of replacing my Soundblaster Live card with an M-audio Audiphile 2496 card for the cleaner digital output timing and to avoide the Soundblaster cards insistence on internally converting cd/mp3 audio fro 44.1 to 48KHz just for playback. Advice on good, reliable and fast suppliers and delivered prices to the UK would be appreciated. cheers, Rob.
