D.A.L DIGITAL ONLY CARD-D

This is DAL's Digital S/PDIF Stand-alone card. It's a very good card, and I use it for all my digital transfers from DAT.....and it's the Dogs Nuts !!!

Having digital transfer is great, cos you can archive any session audio on H/Drive that you might want to remix in the future. You can also return DAT mixes into the PC with no signal degredation for stereo editing or CD and tape compilation, & if you're re-mixing...then it's straight into the PC from DAT, with no signal loss or extra noise....and straight out again to DAT as you mix.....ORGASMIC !!

In this area, there is very little product competition, and DAL have established themselves fairly well in the stand alone S/PDIF card area........You can get S/PDIF on the new Turtle Beach Pinnacle, but the thing is, that the Pinnacle Digital card, only comes as a Piggy-back Daughterboard for the Pinnacle audio card.....DAL also make a Daughterboard version of this Digital card for their "Audio Card D+".

So if you have already got a good soundcard, the DAL Digital is the only stand-alone available from the two companies. There are other digital cards around, such as the Midiman "D-Man" Card, but the DAL has a pretty solid reputation...The "D-Man" card retails at about £ 229, so it is cheaper, but I don't know of its quality........The DAL "Digital Only Card D" has dropped in price to £ 329.......A bargain !!

Anyhow, here's the spec' list :

  • Format: S/PDIF
  • Connectors : RCA
  • Sample Rates: 48, 44.1, 32kHz
  • 16Bit AT Bus Slot
  • Windows, Windows 95, and Windows NT compatible


Bare in mind that these DAL cards require 2 IRQ's to install, as they utilise a seperate interrupt for each direction of signal flow.....

To the guy who was wondering for the quality compared to MAXI 64 Home studio : BEWARE !!! The M64 is NOT a professional-speced board like the CardD. I remember reading in a testbench a while ago that there was a small "sample pace recovery" problem on its SPDIF input at one frequency (48 kHz, I think), the other not being affected. They said it was minor, and u could only hear it on very poor harmonic contents like 'mathematical' waveforms (sine,...) but I didn't experienced it myself anyway....Dont know if it was fixed since. So the Maxi64 is apparently a nice soundcard but wont fit for pro/high-end applications. Once again, u always get what you pay for....

I enjoyed your site and thank you freely sharing the information with the world.I have been using Card D for audio with my PC and I recently bought the digital card.When I opened my computor I realized i didn`t have another ISA slot for it.There arePCI slots available so my question is -Does Card D Digital come in a PCI format?

I have a DAL Card D Plus and up till now have had very good results, but...... now I'm having some problems with recording. Playback is and always has been amazing. The problem I have been experiencing has been a distortion on both channels when recording, and it makes no difference where I place jumpers 5, and 6. I also have a soundblaster 16, and when I use it to record I experience no distortion when recording. I'm using a Fostex model 450 mixer before the Card D Plus, and changing input levels doesn't make a difference with it either. Have you had this experience? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I've got lots of Ram, and a pretty fast H/D, and am using a cyrix 686 120 chip. I know it will perform better than it is, but I just need to work out this one bug. I'm using Pro-Audio 7 as my sequencer, recorder. Anyway Thanks, Andrew Wasson.

Great Card,I bought mine second-hand from a

Computer Engineer who didn't know what he had, and

he sold it to me for $100.00 good-god, I use it

with my DAT and my DCC decks for superb digital

tranfers, bad thing though is it isn't software

upgradable for future uses such as 24-bit digital

some of the newer digital cards are offering this,

this is a very good feature for protecting your

investment

I need a good digi I/O card.

How does this card compare to the digi I/O of the Maxisound Homestudio 64 pro ?

I would prefer getting a good alround card like the Maxisound, but at the end of the day its the recording quality that counts...

i really love using your D.A.L. card D plus at home and would like to take it on the road with me. i just bought this really nice lap-top and was wondering if you have the same thing in a PCMCIA format. it's got to be stereo in and out, 48 khz tops and full duplexing. if you don't, then could you please point me in the right direction? thank you.

Er, I can't seem to get this... How can you rate

the quality of a digital card? It has NO D/A

convertors so all you have to do is look at the

drivers and the quality in/ out/ jacks! In this

case I can't see why this card should be better

than the cheaper Midiman "D-Man"...

Or am I all wrong?

It's a good board. But, in this function "Digital only",

the hohnermidia Prodif24 is very superior, with

optical and coaxial digital SPDIF AES/EBU i/o.
