i'm highly likely to buy a delta 44 card in the next couple of days to put in alongside my sb audigy. I was wondering, as this card seems to have been around a while, if there is anything better been released since which is in the same-ish price range and with similar specs?
btw, will leaving the audigy in cause any problems? its not essential but as i would probably only be able to sell it for around £15, i thought i might keep it in on the off change of needing to use the optical of spdif connections.

Sep 01, 2003 05:34 pm The Delta 44 rocks. It's pretty simple. hehe. You won't have any problems keeping the soundblaster in, I keep mine in and use it for MIDI since the Delta doesn't have MIDI.

Sep 01, 2003 06:14 pm Well, until the next "bus" comes along (ISA, PCI, etc) any PCI card will remain just as good as when it was released.

The Delta range has proven its worth over time as a stable and reliable card.
Teretec make some good sound cards for around the same price, tho I do not have any experience with their products / services.
Sep 01, 2003 06:35 pm I use a delta 44 and have never had any problems with it, so it's my opinion that the delta cards are some of the best cards for the money.

Sep 05, 2003 05:24 pm been using a Delta 44 for 3 years now, no complaints save for some clicks and pops (on playback only!) on particualrly large files, like wav files that are 100's of MB big. but that could be just be my sucky old computer. i think it's unanimous: Delta 44 rawks
