      Thanks guys for the recommendations. Unfortunately,  I will need to update my computer before getting a Delta 44 or FA-66.  My "best" computer is a circa 2003 Pentium 4 with half height PCI slots.  I've been trying to work on the cheap but guess I will need to break down and get myself  something a little more modern in the shack that's upgradeable.

      Hi Kirk,

      I got the same advice about the sound card as you from Christos. Even though it was way above my ham radio budget I followed it and bought a FA-66. I have not regretted this move and as well as the improved performance I was confident when playing around that sound card matters were not my problem. Having said that, setting up a firewire card under Linux sure exercised my grey matter.

      > What I propose to anyone that wants to have a proper SDR operation is to acquire either the FA-66 or the D-44 audio cards, both are more than enough for softrocks and homebrew kits and also give almost all PowerSDR available functions even on a softrock. Mic, Speaker, Tune, VOX, tests etc are working ok with these cards.
