Here is another good example of an external sound card with the "correct" interface inputs, among which we see the popular Hi-Z mono jack for recording live instruments. It, like the XLR microphone input, has a signal level control. The hardware architecture of ESI DuaFire allows signal transmission with a minimum delay not exceeding 1.5 ms. True, for some reason, the developers of this sound system decided to abandon both the digital and MIDI interfaces, but unexpectedly offered a stereo input and stereo output on budget RCA connectors.

 

It's interesting to note that this is an attempt to save users from the so-called "Power over FireWire" problem. On the back of the ESI DuaFire is a switch that de-energizes the power adapter socket if you connect the sound card to a 6-pin connector, so the chance of accidentally burning your device is halved (smile).

The rugged metal housing means that the device is not afraid of frequent transportation and will endure careless handling when performing in clubs and other turbulent places. However, it should be remembered that this card can only work with analog interfaces.
