Utter confusion on Converters A/D, D/A, Clocks, aaahh

    Hi, I am confused about something here, can't find the answer anywhere:

    I'm looking hard at a Lynx soundcard. Easy enough right?

    I have been reading posts from many boards about these, and how much people love them. Fine.

    Then I start reading about people also have their Lynx cards connected to A/D converters, external clocks, D/A converters. What/why/Oh no.

    Is the Lynx not a standalone item capable of all these things? My soundcard does everything, albeit in a mediocre way.

    So I guess I need to know, are these 3 other devices in addition to the soundcard being used for very specific reasons and very professional people? Is it to get more Ins & Outs?

    Thanks in advance for your patience.

    Ok great- thanks David

    Right now I have an OK card in the Edirol UA-5. But I'm tired of wondering if I'm cheating myself in the very first step in the chain. Mics, Preamps, etc I'm OK on. I don't need much.

    M-Audio is attractive but I'm going for a Home run here (OK maybe a triple) and splurging on the Lynx. Its great now to know the facts on all the other doodads I was worried about.

    thanks alot

    Cool, I understand. I have a Delta 66 from M-Audio, and I absolutely love it. Before you buy though, you should look at this .

    I saw my Aardvark card rated highly. Nice to see some reinforcement on my choice of card.

    Yeah, that's one of the main reasons I bought my Delta 66.
