I'm building a new workstation soon and while I'd like to stick with my emu 1616m card, I'll be switching to win7 and I'm worried about their support. Are there any good cards around in the 500 dollar range these days? All I see when looking around are rme and motu and while they're good cards I don't want to spend that much money for features I won't be using unless I have to.

Then spend less on the exact features you want?

RME AIO personally. YMMV

I hadn't seen that card. It looks like just what I may need.

I thought that the emu drivers were still in beta so I will give that a shot first.

Thanks
