Well, I use the audiophile 24/96, but the delta 10/10 has the external
dac. I still need to save up for a nice condensor mike and a digital mixer
to get all the functionality from the audiophile, right now I use a little
line level mixer and do my recording directly into an asrx sampler with an
SM 57 mike, which has given me decent results. I use the audiophile just
to record the sound off of my synths, since I still do most of my
composition via midi. Midiman openly supports Linux, which is really rare
for a sound hardware maker, so that's why I chose them over the
Hammerfall, but I've read that Paul Davis has had some really good results
with the hammerfall.
