I'm getting a new desktop and I've been looking into a new interface as well. I've been using an old focusrite saffire 6 USB, and I'm hoping to get something that's a little better. The one caveat is I want something also to use as an "Audio card" for playing back my collection of FLAC's (Probably through MusicBee into powered monitors) So something with a better sound card than stock Dell Optiplex. I only need one input as I hardly ever do multiple mics any more. USB 2.0, though I'm willing to upgrade to firewire or 3.0 if necessary. I see people suggest interfaces, but playback is hardly mentioned. Recommendations?
