Choose us is your right choice!! These days, when we talk to the members of our professional user community, we can see that the demand for a higher recording quality standard is getting more and more important, although we have to admit, that this is a considerably slow process.

Headphones Despite the fact that this card does not have a separate output to headphones, they can be connected using the 2RCA-minijack adapter. All returns must be aim within 30 days from this shipment date. So despite their rather high quality converters, such cards cannot be used for professional work. Feel The Sunshine, Pulp Friction and some other test compositions with clear compressed mastering and timbre-catchy high frequency range.

But, from our experience in the past, we suspect that there always will be some limitations of on-board sound aom. Interface names mean the following applications: As more and more professionals are producing music and media content for higher bit and sample rates, the actual demand for consumer products that support these features is also growing.

Duties and Customs Declarations: Modern PCs are easily fast enough to provide better sounding effects and software synthesizer sounds compared to current DSP solutions. Return must be in new condition.


How is ESI getting on? We offer a warranty on all items that we sold.


There was certainly improvement on specification over the outdated AC It is especially important for professional 44358, so we tested the card in three modes: The difference is not so large but it still makes itself felt.

For consumer products, Audiotrak brand will release LP Low Profile type products which will inherit all the available features in a half sized PCI board and which will fit nicely in a small form factor PC cases.

Multi-client support An unlimited number of audio applications can be accessed simultaneously with the multi-client support. Should we expect new interesting products, such as Juliin future from ESI engineers? Solutions like VST plugins or DirectX effects are providing excellent results for professional and even ultra high end professional effects, 4538 on native CPU processing. aim

Many professionals are also buying higher spec hardware because they understand that higher spec hardware also works better even when working with lower samplerates.

Using DirectWIRE you can also record multi-channel audio from DVD or another source even protected from copying in formats up to bit kHz in real time in completely digital form. Besides, we carried out the following interesting experiment: Order Preparing Lead time: DAC is not a top class, but quite good enough for a sound card in this price range.

44358, considering the high price of EMU, it cannot be called a successful sound card — it’s an economic modification of the elder M. Conclusions Professional sound card ESI Juli has an unusual design, it features both professional and consumer connectors, full MIDI and digital interfaces, high quality playback, excellent drivers, quite a reasonable price, and it is available on sale.


One way or another, it’s impossible to hear the difference between the original amm the received sound — the differences are below the thermal noise threshold in semiconductors, and any digital-analog conversion will guarantee much more audible inaccuracies — the native level of noise 4538 modern DAC is hardly over dB A. On the digital oscillograph EZ Digital OSM we monitored how the amplitude changed and at what resistance there would be a limitation.

The noise level measured is close to the claimed figures in the converter specifications. Sound Quality Juli vs.

Thank you very much! If you increase the time between the auditions to a couple of minutes, you won’t be able to distinguish the cards even with the same music fragment.

Buffer size can be set in drivers. Working in Professional Applications No surprises here. Our shipping Method and Expect to Arrival date: As for the ADC, we always try to use the best available components, as recording is more important than playback for 43558 professional users. We did research the market and the already available products. We are confident that optional soundcards will be available in the future, probably mostly for audio enthusiast and of course for professionals.

When the linear input is tested ak the balanced mode using LynxTwo, the frequency response gets worse in this test as well as in all the other ones.
