No argument here.  Most are better than nothing, but still lie like a rug 
under dynamic conditions.

I wasn't aware of that bit of code, thanks Fons.

Now that I've been retired for over a decade, lots of that stuff goes right 
on by I'm sorry to say.  What does it use for its A/D converter?  Not all 
audio cards have sufficient depth to pull that off w/o the converter 
showing what a POC it is if the input level is off 3 to 6 db from ideal.  
My audigy2 value I would call just usable with its 24 bit range.
