[Ardour-Users] Preferred USB Audio Interface

I have experience with a Maya 44 USB, got 4 in 4 out (RCA unbalanced
connections), as well as a "headphones & optical" (combined) output. Audio
quality was fine, it does a samplerate of 48kHz, and latencies around 20ms
or so..

Very stable card, the only module you need to ensure is loaded is
"snd-usb-audio" IIRC... But any modern system will load that one

Overall I rate the card "cheap & very cheerful".. :-D
Good luck! -Harry
