    Our radio station is in need of a possible replacement for the professional
    sound card that's currently in the production room computer. The type of card
    currently installed is a Digidesign Audiomedia III card. The problem with this
    particular card is that the chip on it is faulty (according to the
    manufacturer's FAQ on its web site) and produces a crackling noise on playback.
    I've tried the recommended software update, but to no avail. The card is no
    longer warranted and the manufacturer wants an arm and a leg for the upgrade.

    I'm willing to entertain any and all other alternatives. We have several

    1. It needs to run on a PC...we have Windows 98 installed.
    2. It needs to have two L/R RCA jacks on the card.
    3. It needs to be capable of recording analog input digitally.

    The closest card that I was able to find was one called the Yamaha DSP Factory
    (see @ http://www.innovativemusic.com.au/Products/Yamaha/ds2416.htm), but I've
    found it through an Australian web site. If anyone knows of a similar model
    card or better, please let me know. Also, a good U.S. vendor would help because
    we need to take care of this matter as quickly as possible.

    Thanks for your time.
