M-Audio delta 66 comments/review??

    Has anyone used the m-a delta 66 soundcard on a PC? I am about to buy one, but I couldn't find any serious review. My main concern is latency and clicks and crackles on the system. I need to be able to run at less than 10ms of latency

    My pc is:
    Windows XP Pro, Nuendo 3, Reason 2.5, trying to migrate to PT
    MSI Neo2 Platinum
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+
    1GB RAM (2x512 - dual channel)
    1xPATA Drive for OS 20 GB
    1xSATA Drive for audio data 120 GB

    The Delta 66 is a very nice little card. You will easily be able to get better than 10 msec. I can get mine down to two when necessary and no clicks or pops to be heard. The only problem, as with all AD converters inside the PC case, is EMI. Depending on how bad the EMI is inside of your case, you miht want to look into a Delta 1010 or something like that instead.

    Thanks! Is there any way to find out how bad is the EMI inside the case? Maybe some test using my Sound Blaster Live?

    How much noise do you year when monitoring your recordig channels with no signal? Do you hear strange little blips and stuff? Are there noises that correlate with screen redraws? Listen.
