Certainly not. At best it is equally bad. (On the other hand, apparently

I use *professional* grade sound cards, because I like good sound quality.
Can you recommend a professional sound card?
Not sure if this is professional grade, but I have used M-audio 2496
(http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Audiophile2496.html). It has
worked like a charm. Used it for live music recording and also for
playback via a mixer. The system is Ubuntu based, but should have no
problem in Debian either.
hi johannes (if you read this):
do you happen to know if ALSA can initialize the chip of M-audio 2496?
and, what is the code of the chip of this card?
