I've got two second hand DMAN 2044 in my clone 1 ghz PC running 98SE (of course - nothing else supported) and I recon they are great. I use Cubase VST to access the inputs and after a fair bit of tweaking with sync the system is performing well. I can not use the Dman ASIO driver though, this driver only makes one card available to Cubase. Sound is very good, the weakest part of the audio is now the microphones. There is a large latency with the ASIO drivers so I have to monitor each card using one card for left and one for right during recording but have to swap to outputs 1&2 for wav layback so as never to avoid the problems associated with latency. All in all, you can get these cards cheap now and have quite a good experience capturing multi track audio with these cards.

I have used this card for about 3 years. I have had ZERO trouble out of it. It sound very clean and transparent. I have never used anything else (SB,etc) so I cannot comment but I have never felt like it was doing any of my other gear a disservice. I have not had any compatibility issues either ...I run win 98 (still) and use the usual software (soundforge,acid, cakewalk, fruityloops...) actually I have download ALOT of programs over the years but I have yet to have a problem out of the 2044. I don't know how newer cards stack up but I endorse this one fully for simple, clean, I/O.

I bought two of these cards on eBay. They came up like a charm on a Win98SE box. The "what goes in comes out" comment is right on. I was floored by how good it sounded. Careful, though, Midiman has a bad reputation for abandoning their otherwise fine products. They will never upgrade the drivers so I'll never be able to use this in a newer machine (different OS). This company will never make more than junk if they don't learn how to support stuff. I guess that's why their stuff is cheap, because other than support, everything they make (I've ever read about) kicks butt.
