OK. Then you should have nice looking spectra :-)

This is noise at very low frequencies. I have one system
here that has a unmodified Delta44 in a Pentium MMX 266 MHz
computer. It runs 2 channels in 96 kHz bandwidth - but only 
when fft2 is disabled and the fft1 parameters are set for
"processing economy". On this computer the center spur
is 30 dB above noise. My "normal" computer, a PIV, 2.7GHz
with a modified Delta44 has the center spur at 15 dB only.
I think this is the unavoidable level of 1/F noise in the
A/D converter.

The center spur should not change if you disconnect the 
cable  to the Delta44.
