    Red face Are there any 384 kHz sound cards available for desktops?

    Greetings.

    I am in search of a 384 kHz sound card to measure audio equipment. I've only stumbled upon 192 kHz which is not high enough for frequency measuring.

    Can anyone direct me to a link offering 384 kHz sound cards for a desktop computer.

    Cheers!

    There are some soundcard-esque devices that can output 384kHz. f.ex. this, but this outputs to a I2S interface, you'd require a I2S DAC and some DIY skills to make something out of this. http://www.exadevices.com/

    EDIT: It seems that they recommend the ESStech ES9018 DAC chip for the 384kHz. Now you just need to find something that has an I2S input and that chip.

    Cheers mate.

    At least it is a start. I may just contact the developer if the 101 page thread on Diyaudio does not answer my questions.

    It appears this device only supports playback which, will not work for sine wave testing hardware audio equipment's frequency response over a broad frequency bandwidth.

    Are there any other choices available for a 384 kHz sound card?

    Only consumer level stuff I know of is all playback related. There aren't very many recording devices that can record at that resolution.

    This isn't technically a sound card, but here ya go. You're not going to like the price.
