2496 vs 192

I need a descent soundcard and will opt for one of these,the audiophile2496 or the latest 192.

I have seen a few others from m-audio but they seem a little more than what I will be using it for. The largest difference is that the 192 is virtualy double in price.Would it be worth spending the extra money?

link for the 2496:

link for the 192:

What do you think?

Unless 16 MIDI channels and surround sound capability are important to you, the 192 isn't worth the extra $70

Do you mean it will produce a surround sound for dvd video,audio,or both?

What does the 2496 produce?..2.1?

Re: 2496 vs 192

the 192 is a 4-in, 4-out card... its like two 2496 cards put together, useful for recording musicians. you will be find with the 2496 (which is 2-in, 2-out), and judjing by what I can read about it the quality will be equal.
