I'm new here and am hoping to get a lot of work done in mini mastering with SF7/CDA5.
My question is are there any here that use the Echo Mia audiocard with SF7/CDA5??
I'm torn between Echo Mia and the M-Audio audiophile cards. But the Echo card seems to get a tad better reviews, as far as I can see.
Anyway hope to learn from you guys, in the future.

Neither have problems working with CDA5, so you really need to search out product reviews wrt general use.

Also, although the Maudio cards perform well once you get them working, they've been notorious for having driver issues and their developers haven't been cooperative with SoFo/Sony to work this out. Hence, I typically encourage people to avoid their cards on principle alone. Echo has had a good relationship with the SoFo developers for quite some time and they make excellent cards/interfaces. I've been using Laylas for about 4 years.

I have been using dual Echo Ginas and have had great performance with these for 5 years now with all the Sony/Sofo apps. There tech support is great, I sent them an email asking them if they where planning on developing a MIA for Laptop use and got two immediate responses.
