This cable set plugs into the soundcard on the back of the computer. Please see the msnual above. Installation is straightforward, plugging the soundcard into a PCI slot, hooking up the cable adapter and booting the computer. Before the install I downloaded the latest drivers from the M Audio site and put them on a floppy as directed.
Windows 98SE found the soundcard and I loaded the drivers. Unfortunately, the new drivers did not work well in my system, freezing on reboot.
I uninstalled the drivers and installed the drivers that came on the floppy directly to my C: I then rebooted and instructed Windows to search the C: It found them and warned me that they were older than the ones currently on the system. I instructed Windows to replace the newer drivers and was successful in getting the card installed. Since then, I have had no troubles whatsoever with the driver mnual. The system is stable and capable.
The driver support is superior. Similar to the Delta 66 interface I previously reviewed, this one provides great flexibility in routing and monitoring of the audio signals.
There is a bit of a audiophjle curve initially that proves well worth it once you understand it. All in all, the software makes for great flexibility in using the system, providing a high level of control over the system to the user.
Sound quality While I did not expect this soundcard to rival the sound quality of more expensive systems I have reviewed, I was still quite surprised and pleased with its sound quality. The system uses the same converters as the Delta 66 I have reviewed previously and sounds nearly as good. The card is quiet, sounds uniformly good audlophile the audio range from very highs to very lows. I used the card to record some vocals and acoustic guitar on a project I am working on and was quite pleased with its 296 of use and quality.

The only true audio diffence between this card and the Delta 66 rests in the use of unbalanced RCA cables. Typically, balanced cables will provide greater sound insulation and resistance to RFI interference janual unbalanced cables.
Would this be noticeable in the typical home setup? However, it remains true that a audioophile connector will ultimately provide better sound quality, though the differences may not be easily discernible. I would strongly suggest to the user that they use high-quality RCA cabling to minimize any potential interference – – this will definitely ensure getting the high-fidelity this card is capable of.
My only complaint is that the connections are all at the back of the computer and can be rather difficult to access if you need to change the cabling for any reason. However, the option of having MIDI connectivity makes this a well-rounded soundcard. The card is multi-client capable, meaning the user can allow more than one application to access the soundcard simultaneously. All in all, the card is capable of answering most recording needs in a small home studio.

The user could use a sequencer to play a MIDI track, play a software synthesizer and record audio simulataneously, while monitoring all the tracks through some monitor speakers. This is truly a useable and capable card. Conclusions M Audio has typically provided strong and timely driver support and I did not need to contact them regarding any technical issues about this card.
It worked well, with the included drivers, out of the gate. It is ideal for making high-quality demo recordings, and when combined with other high-quality gear will provide professional results on more ambitious projects. At its price point, the card is rather remarkable in what it provides to the user and what it is capable of.
