Re: REW Sound Card Database

Since the uca202 has separate right and left channels for both out and in, 2 simple subwoofer/rca cables should suffice right? (I already have a rca splitter for the avr's end)

for instance: http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-PureAV-...ubwoofer+cable

Re: REW Sound Card Database

I want to buy a new Preamp for ECM8000 to use with REW.

Which one is better between Tascam US-122 MKII and M-Audio MobilePre USB or any other recommend?

Thanks

Re: REW Sound Card Database

I would also like too know this if anyone have some idea. TASCAM vs. M Audio vs. E-MU external soundcards? Or what about just a high quality pc soundcard?

I have them both, I prefer the M-Audio. I like the controls better and it's a little more portable. The TASCAM is fine but just a little awkward.

The reason to use them over a sound card is that they both provide phantom power -- which a sound card cannot.

Re: REW Sound Card Database

Yeah the PCI versions won't have a preamp or phantom power to power ur sdc....unless there's a breakout box like the EMU 1616m but ur looking at $300+ range

EMU is known for having better AD/DA converters than its competitors within similar price ranges...so maybe the 0404usb or 0202usb might work for u too.

C6 - W7 x64 - Custom AMD Phenom II x2 560 Black 3.3Ghz - 8gb DDR2 - EMU 1212M - UAD1 - GAP Pre 73 - HS80m's - Presonus HP4 - Yamaha KX49 - NI/IK Bundles

Cool. So the insides of the units don't differ much quality wise? What im trying too find out is if some have much better frequency responds than others.

But maybe this is a hard thing too answer since very few people actually open up the boxes and do real comparisons.

U wouldn't have to open them up to see their frequency responses lol. They may have charts online though if u look.

The funny thing is, if u accidentally choose the one with the worse freq resp, it almost doesn't matter as, when u calibrate ur system, REW will compensate for whatever ur interface is lacking in "flatness".

I think u would be fine with either for doing measurements as they both have the necessary specs...just get the one that "looks cooler" maybe LOL.

Hehe you're right about that mate. What i meant about that were that it's difficult too know what chips are on the soundcard when it's encased. So you're left with subjective opinions and close too no comparisons around on the web. Hard too get a full picture just going by hearsay and product specs.

Well i got the TASCAM 122 MKII as that one seemed too have a lot of positive writings on this forum right now.
