      Ray,

      We have just finished qualifying a new soundcard for use with laptops
      and the SDR-1000.  It is called the PreSonus FireBox.  It is a firewire
      (IEEE-1394) soundcard with 6 inputs and 10 outputs.  It will take a
      hefty processor to run it (~1.5GHz+), but will give comparable
      performance to the Delta 44.

      ======================================================================
      I know the Delta-44 is the "preferred" sound card by many for SDR use,
      however I wonder which external card has shown the best performance
      for use with a laptop.

      The SB Audigy 2 NX USB and the SB Audigy 2 ZS Laptop (PCMCIA) cards
      seem to have pretty good specs however I've noticed a bit of list
      message traffic concerning difficulties a few users have had with
      these cards when used with the Rocky software.

      Have these difficulties been resolved in the most recent versions of
      Rocky ? Any comments on the use of these cards (or others you have had
      good luck with) with Rocky and other SDR software would be welcome.

      Thanks & 73,
