    Hi,

    Last moth I had a robbery at my studio and the whole computer was stolen. :cry:

    I had a nuendo complete system and now I've bought another computer and I'm looking for an audio card: I'm not sure if I should buy a Nuendo DSP 96/52 (by RME) like the one I owned before or try with a Motu or an Apogee.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    RME is great stuff
    M-Audio is probably just a hair behind RME and a bit cheaper.

    I have issues with MOTU, especially on a PC - really don't like them at all (too many bad experiences).

    If you want to spend the money on real hi-end converters.. get a Lynx card and a couple of Apogees.

    I agree with boheme6 on the motu issues. I was ok for about 5 months and then the 2408 started acting up. It's all maudio now and never a problem. Sorry to hear about the robbery.

    I have M-Audio as well as Lynx. If you have the $, Lynx is a fine card.

    I run Samplitude which will happily record with Delta and Lynx simultaneously. :D

    Love all Lynx gear.

    I have an RME 8x8 ADDA in my "B" suite and love the sound. For the money I think it holds it own against Appogee. We have several in our "A" suite.

    If price is a consideration, the M-Audio stuff is selling way cheap right now--the Delta 44 for around $145 and the Delta 66 for around $190.

    Thanks

    Well, I think I'll buy an RME again... too many good reviews for this card...

    I'll take a look on Lynx cards...

    Thanks for your posts!! They helped me to consider MOTU's reliability...
