Soundcard: Do I need +4dBu ins? Or is -10dBV okay?

    I'm going to buy a new soundcard. I am going to buy one that has balanced ins, but should I also sure that the balanced ins take +4dbu, or is -10dBV input okay? Will it even make a difference?

    My preamp is a Mackie 1202, so I can send my output through either +4dBu or -10dBV.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Many soundcards will have switchable input levels. Go with +4 if you can, but it won't matter much.
