What's the issue with the E-MU preamps? They are:
Two E-MU XTCT studio-grade, ultra-low noise preamps (-127dBu EIN) with
analog soft limiter - Mic/Line and true Hi-Z inputs via Neutrik
48V phantom power and 60dB of gain
After all, I'm using an Indigo I/O card right now, with an 1/8th inch mini
plug for input, and I'm not even complaining about that. So, I'm guessing
these E-MU preamps will suit me just fine.
And I'm not sure PCMCIA

I'm not worried about PCMCIA. I've been using it for years for othe
applications. I don't have much of
a choice either, because my Thinkpad doesn''t have firewire If it did, my
choice would be obvious.
Also, Rainer, I saw you note on the other interfaces. Basically, I'm
to stay away from USB here. I have
limited slots. Oddly, there are only two cardbus audio interface systems I
could find that have break-out boxes:
the E-MU and the RME hammerfall card, which is $300 by itself, not
the breakout! No way.
