M-Audio Audiophile 2496 USB audio interfaceAudiophile USB is the affordable, no-hassle USB audio and MIDI interface for Mac and PC. The Audiophile USB builds on the success of the popular Audiophile 2496 awarded Best Soundcard by Computer Music magazine—delivering 24-bit/96k quality with great dynamic range and noise specs. That’s because it uses AC-powered components that deliver better fidelity than bus-powered circuitry. The included Mac and PC drivers let you independently scale bit depth and sample rate (up to 96kHz) to deliver the lowest USB latency anywhere—whether you’re on stage or in the studio.

This device does not include any built-in means of input monitoring; it relies on monitoring being available through the associated software applications.
