"I bought this soundcard well over 3 years ago, and it has been a good workhorse ever since.
It was around the time that 96khz recording was just making a breakthrough and so was a fairly expensive buy at the time, but just that little bit cheaper than the 66 (with SPDIF) to make it a worthy buy.

The Delta 44 is the only computer interface you will need to input and output 4 channels of analog audio from your computer (four mono; i.e. 2 x stereo) - all at an affordable price and at the pinnacle of 24-bit 96kHz fidelity. The Delta 66 card is identical, but includes a digital output too (which can be used as a third stereo output, for pre-listen for example). Two cards can be fitted into a system to provide four stereo outputs, instead of two. The Delta 44 system includes a PCI card connected to a sturdy analog breakout box. The breakout box provides four analog audio input and output jacks, compatible with balanced or unbalanced, +4dB or -10dB signal levels. Also included is Delta Control Panel software, which allows you to control the Delta 44's comprehensive routing, monitoring, and mixing capabilities.
