firewire is quite an exciting tech that i think will be of lot of use soon.....
I didnt include it in the poll because I wasnt to hot on the initial press the card got for poor drivers. Philips has never excited me in the past with their products. Maybe I should take a better look into their cards.
With USB2.0 approaching firewire transfer speeds I'm not too sure how much use it will be getting....
I have used several in the past with Sound Blaster being my main stay for years. Then I took a look at the Philips Acoustic Edge and bought one. Loved the card, still have it as a spare. Then went to the Hercules Game Theater XP which I also like alot. It has an annoying pop when I reboot but other than that it performs flawlessly, and I like the breakout box. I didn't want any more cables running around inside my case.
Re: Sound Off
This is the type of vibe that I have gotten from this card..
