PCI or PCIe is much faster and much more stable than this USB sh*t!!!
The Firewire (Multifaces by RME) are pretty good also.

with the RME9632 you have ADAT IN and OUT.. Midi In and Out and also SPDIF and a good headphone preamp.
in combination with a "Marian Adcon" ADAT interface (8x IN&OUT) it is the ultimate weapon

The RME-Card sounds very clear and analytically.
It does not add any coloring and does not distort.

i had a

Emu 1616M PCI (good)
M-Audio Delta 2496 (mhh okay)
Motu 828MK2 (good)

but the RME is still the best for me.
it is stable, it sounds f*cking clean and it has the lowest possible latency i had ever used.

EDIT: and the drivers are always up to date!!

do not start laughing now ..
but this track on soundcloud, below (gain toy demo),
I've produced it with the onboard sound-card from my motherboard and an ASIO4ALL driver..
