I, to, have massive problems with pops and clicks using the Audiophile 2496 on a Pentium 4 with windows xp, any program. No one has been able to help me with it including midiman support. The problem is said to be that the card won't run smoothly on a pc that has it's operating system installed in ACPI mode. Since reformatting the hard disk and reinstalling operating systems is not an option for me it looks like I'll have to purchase a second computer to run music programs on. A shame since the computer is a very fast, hi spec, state of the art cutting edge machine (a brand new Dell). I think that this product is about 3 years behind the contempory computer market. Can any one offer me any advice that might change my mind about the Audiophile 2496? Please?

I am using the Audiophile 2496 and am having a great deal of problems with pops and clicks. When I run my cubase VST32 initially there are no problems. after 10 to 15 minutes the pops and clicks start. I have tried different Audio drivers offered by Midiman with no success. I am running a fast pentium III machine with Win 98se. Does anyone have any advice. Idiman has useless support.

Thanks

I bought this card after having so many problems using a Sound Blaster Audigy. All I can say is I had no problems getting this card to work off the bat, I installed the updated drivers right away instead of the outdated drivers on the CD it came with. I highly reccomend anyone looking at buying an Audigy to spill out an extra few bucks and get an Audiophile instead.

I got this card couple months ago, Its just what I needed to use with reason and nuendo. The sound quality is same as the 500$ + multiple input/output soundcards because they all use the D-A/A-D converters used on this card or another brand (I forgot the name of the brand) This card is excellent for using soft synths or anythinh you dont need more then 2 anolog ins/outs. Since I am using pretty much software this card is excellent. When it came it had some driver problems but runs much better since the updates. People who are bitching about cracks and pops: Use the card with an higher latency setting! Do you guys ever read the documentation or have any clue about the ASIO or WDM ? In most situations its not the card but people using the pc on lower latency the their machine can handle. The unbalanced outs are not a problem if you keep have high quality cables over short distances ( why would anyone use a 15' cord?) There is no quality difference between the balanced and the unbalanced, balanced can pick up the rf signals easier the the unbalanced over long distances. I am giving it a 8 because of the rushed driverS. If you are looking for a card to upgrade from the built in soundcard on your MB or the Sb-shit! then this is the way to go.

Fed up with my SBLive! Value and decided to get something i could record on a bit better and also somthing I could use soft synths a bit more effectively. In short this card sounds the business and I've got latency to below 10ms. No complaints.
