Computer recording for the musician on the go.
The Echo AudioFire2 is an extremely small FireWire audio interface that's packed with lots of features. AudioFire2 has two audio channels with fully balanced I/O, headphone jack with volume control, S/PDIF I/O, and MIDI I/O, all in a 3.5" x 4.25" interface.
Power is provided directly from the FireWire bus or from the supplied power source. MIDI and S/PDIF are available via a removable dongle for compact flexibility. With the AudioFire2 you can record 24 bit 96kHz audio with low latency monitoring on any Windows XP or Mac OS X computer (desktop or notebook) with a FireWire port.

Comments about Echo AudioFire2 FireWire Audio Interface:
I now use an external ADC to feed the S/PDIF digital input, and an exteral DAC fed from it's S/PDIF digital output. And I still use one of the analog outputs to power a separate mono mixing monitor.
So I have in essence used the reliable Echo drivers in Win 7 64-bit to create a world-class hybrid sound card! It worked just fine as it was (without the extras), but you can always use this strategy to beef it up (if necessary) down the line.
Haven't used the MIDI ins/outs because I use USB MIDI inputs. But everything else works very well -- so I highly recommend the Echo AudioFire2 FireWire Audio Interface sound card.
Note: my input/output chain: Grace Design m101 preamp > Mytek ADC192 > AudioFire2 FireWire Audio Interface (S/PDIF Input) > Sonar X1c DAW > AudioFire2 FireWire Audio Interface (S/PDIF output) > Eastern Electric MiniMax DAC > PMC TB2S+ speakers (with stereo HSU STF-1 subwoofers, each fed by a Velodyne SMS-1). Also using a Behringer C50A (fed by the AudioFire 2's analog output) for mono mixing adjustments.
Two analog ins and outs, S/PDIF Stereo in and out (stereo), easy to map the headphones to any output -- great for a home studio. Drivers wok great with Win 7 64-bit. I've been very pleased with Echo Audio sonce I purchased their Gina-24 back in 2003. Great drivers, and they've always kept them updated.
No problems for 1-1/2 years. So, so far -- so good.
Great price. And no external power needed.
