I probably will need to have laptop and I it should be running FreeBSD.

My guess is it will probably be T61, for it's robustness and open source support..

To the point, I will need a decent soundcard, to feed my habit of listening music wink.gif

I checked http://manuals.opensound.com/devlists/FreeBSD.html , but didn't saw anything interesting, especially that praised Echo Indigo card sad.gif

Is the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS PCMCIA the only choice?

T61 should have some integrated Intel card ("Intel High Definition Audio"), or at best; AD1984JCP.

* Edit. Maybe AD1984 http://www.analog.com/en/prod/0,2877,AD1984,00.html is better than Creative? But it is only supported by ALSA, and the ALSA FreeBSD port is quite old..

* Though quite overkill, shame that E-MU 1616 is not supported..

* Digigram VXpocket 440 is not supported..

* There is no great choice sad.gif

None support BSD, some ALSA.

Just for search reference, ODAC (Objective DAC) works very well over snd_uaudio on FreeBSD.
