Hey Mark,

I'd take a look at the RME product line
<> for a good combination
of price and flexibility/expandability.  I've been using an RME
Multiface/CardBus for some time now as an interface to my laptop
(running Linux) for field recordings (mostly acoustic ensembles) and
portable editing.  I chose this for its range of compatibility with
different software packages and for the company's approach to modular
product design.  On top of that, it is stable, durable, and sounded
better than, or comprable to, anything else I tried near the same price
range.  I haven't used their firewire products, but have heard good
things about them.

By the way, I'm a new ARSC member and new to this list so, "hi all."
