Re: [linrad] Laptop

Hello the net:

I am agonizing over a similar issue.

Agonizing because I do not want to throw away money and I do not want to 
that I have taken the steepest learning curve.

I see merit to the external soundblaster EXTIGY box on the USB V2
        24 bit sampling
        possibly better EMi/RFI immunity/susceptibility with the 
external box

Use the external multichannel A/d for inputs and the motherboard 
soundcard for outputs (2CH), d/a.
