    Can't tell you about the M-Audio, except that their new Firebox does NOT support GSIF, but Echo stuff sounds very good and works quite well.
    It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...

    I own an Echo MIA and an AP 192. Each has some drawbacks.

    If you own an Asus A8V-Deluxe board (VIA KT800Pro chipset), avoid the Echo. There is some incompatibility between that board/chipset and the Echo drivers. I'm not sure if that has been resolved. I ran into it in December, 2004.

    I bought the AP 192 and gave the MIA to my kids' computer. Its S/PDIF output doesn't work with GS3, and probably won't with GS2.5 either. I tracked it down to the Delta GSIF driver. I'm not using S/PDIF, so it's no big deal for me.

    So, if you don't use an A64 board with VIA, I'd go for the Echo. If you do, I'd go for the AP 192, but not if you need S/PDIF outs.

    Hopefully there will be updates for both drivers, so these issues will disappear.

    The MSI board you have is for the normal Athlon, rather than the Athlon64. You should have no problems with it. My MIA runs fine on my Socket A Athlon/VIA system.
