the dman is a good card for the price but the support isnt...i couldnt get good wdm drivers for it and i dont think ill be able to..and since i got sonar wdm is pretty much a must to maximize low latency..im gonna try a new card that sounds (on paper) like it will be a good fit for sonar users in the $100 range...its called maya made by audiotrak (egosys pet project)..but the dman will work fine if latency doesnt bug you.

The Dman is a dressed up multimedia card priced at $125-$130. The specs don't tell you that it has 18 bit converters with fixed 48 khz sample rate. DSP does the conversion to other sample rates, and doesn't seem to do it very well. Uses Crystal 4297 codec and 4614 dsp. Not a card I recommend.

I am very happy with my DMAN-PCI. It seamlessly interfaces with Cakewalk, and simultaneous MIDI/audio stays in sync perfectly, no matter how long the song is (try to do that with a SoundBlaster!).

The onboard GM synth sounds aren't that great, but I don't use them at all so it's not a problem for me.

I consider the DMAN-PCI to be the BEST sound card available in the $100 price range!
