Audiophile 192

High-Definition 4-In/4-Out Audio Card with Digital I/O and MIDI

The Audiophile 192 continues the legacy of M-Audio’s industry-standard Delta audio card line. Building on our Audiophile 2496—one of the world’s most popular audio cards—the Audiophile 192 features high-definition 192kHz sampling rate, digital I/O, balanced analog I/O and an amazing signal-to-noise ratio. The Audiophile 192 represents a new benchmark in audio performance that’s as good as it gets for music production, mastering and critical listening. As with all Delta cards, you get rock-solid drivers and seamless integration with your favorite Mac and PC applications—and even the ability to combine multiple Delta cards in one system*. And since M-Audio is always ahead of the pack, this world-class card is also compliant with PCI 2.2 and 64-bit audio drivers so you’re ready to take advantage of next-generation platforms and software. The Audiophile 192 is the new world-class standard in stereo audio cards.
