[linux-audio-user] Good Sound Card for Pro Multitracking

I would simply prefer to be able to hit 96K.  I definitely need an external
A/D/D/A unit for sound quality reasons.  I can probably use external mic
pre-amps.  I have been considering using a Presonus DIGImaxLt with a RME
Hammerfall 9652 but I think it ends up being cheaper to get an outboard box
with balanced ins and outs and throwing some kind of 8 channel mic pre in
front of it, unless there was a less expensive ALSA compatible option that
had 8 mic pres and 8 outs.
