What in your opinion is the best mid-range (up to 160) consumer available audiophile sound card? I don't need EAX or any of that rubbish. I just want to listen to FLACs.

If it matters, my platform is Linux.

I have heard M-audio delta 44 and 2496 are very nice. but has anyone done comparisons?

Yeah, I play games under Linux. I have about 25 first person shooters, but I find their sounds are fine as they are without EAX. I love to play Quake most, so it won't be a problem. I just like to audiophile. Any more suggestions for a great sound card? Every one I've ever used has been supported on Linux because it's the best and the one that supports the most hardware. The M-Audio for example, uses the Envy24 chipset, a well supported one.

As for the Xonars, they're PCI or PCIEx4 right? My x16 is used up by my 8500GT.
