Dear List, we are currently setting up a new teaching lab in which we want students to run simple auditory psychometric experiments as part of a practical class. Could anyone recommend a sound card to use for this purpose? Since we need to equip quite a few machines with these cards it is important that the cards be cheap, but we found that some of the very cheap cards distort quite badly, have considerable background hum or noise, or have poor quality connectors so that one of the audio channels may cut out intermittently. If anyone has made any good experiences with cheap sound cards (or if anyone has made particularly bad ones and might be able to tell me which cards to avoid) please let me know.
