This new card does not have multiple inputs!  It shares one line-in/mic-in
jack.  If you are interfacing with a rigblaster and you need a line-in and
mic-in you are out of luck!

Walmart is only carrying this card.  Office Depot had the 24bit and the
Audiology card.  The Audiology card is about 3 times as much.

I have not checked any computer store to see if they have any of the older
cards still around but you might want to pick one or two up.

K1TTT reports that the newer cards are slow and don't switch off
immediately, they tend to fade out.

The 24bit live card graded out as a 7b.  Would not support SO2R.
