Maybe I lost track and missed something, but I don't think I ever saw 
more on the subject of specific high-end sound cards that might be 
useful for nutty measurements.

I'd be interested to hear what any of the group has to share about 
relative merits of current sound cards that can be interfaced for 
measurements like what was being discussed in that earlier thread. (And 
some before and since.)

 From my own point of view, I'd most like to hear about any that are 
external -- connected by USB or 1394, rather than an internal card. This 
makes it more portable and easier to move between different PC's.

Bruce or anyone, got more to share?
