2 sound cards.
An integrated 7.1 for recording and a PCI 5.1 for playback. Tell you why. The integrated gizmo is much better quality and better isolated than my PCI card – which is a couple of years old now – and that’s why I record sound using that. However for export to tape and other sensible tasks I use the PCI card as I want no possible interruptions or hiccups (I know call me old fashioned for even worrying that an AMD64 can’t cope with SD… but I’m not taking any chances).
