Re: Sound cards for psychoacoustics

This question came up a few months ago, and I believe the consensus was that M-Audio, Edirol, Echo and Tascam were quite good brands, and that SoundBlaster should be avoided.  See previous thread "advice on equipment (headphones, microphones, sound cards)" for more details.

Dear list members,

I would appreciate some advice on sound cards. Our aim is to perform psychoacoustical experiments with a standard PC equipped with a sufficiently good sound card. Ideally, the sound card should have an excellent signal-to-noise ratio at the headphone output and be accessible (programmable) from Matlab. Any recommendations would be very welcome.

Thanks in advance.
