The M-Audio Audiophile 2496 is an all-in-one high fidelity soundcard solution for a wide variety of applications, ranging from multi-track recording to computer-based home theatre. Analog in/out is available on RCA coaxial jacks, utilizing the same professional 24-bit, 96kHz conversion as the Delta 44 and Delta 66 cards. S/PDIF in/out and MIDI in/out provide connectivity to both digital devices and the world of MIDI.

The coaxial digital outputs are Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound capable, making the Audiophile 2496 the perfect "high-end" sound card for digital recording, analog or digital transfers, mixing and mastering, as well as DVD and home theatre applications.
