Fabian Fagerholm 1 7. Forcing the card to operate at a certain bit depth, for example, will require the editing of a few files. Post as a guest Name. Each card was tested three times at these bit depths and sampling rates in order to test the signal-to-noise ratio, which varies r2 to the bit depth and sampling rate. This is incredibly annoying. Many devices will appear, so trial and error is needed. After using it for myself, I can say that oinux is a winner and one of the best sound cards that I have ever used.

When connecting audio from multiple computers, each audio output from each computer must have its own audio isolator to ensure hum-free sound. A pictorial diagram illustrates the various speaker configurations. I recommend disabling the onboard audio in BIOS so it no longer appears as part of the usable Linux sound devices either in the GUI dialogs of the at the command line.
