Hm. I admit that I got a cheap one off Amazon for $25. It's a simple USB 7.1 box. Sounds just fine to me. When I've looked at blind testing, most folks can't tell one from another, so I don't bother playing in the expensive electronics leagues. I can hear speaker differences, but never have been able to hear amps, sound cards, etc.

If you mean for crossover use, integrated chip is good enough. It's common those have 8 output channels (maybe even separate DAC chip for each stereo pair (i.e. 4 DACs)). which allows build a 4-way crossover

I'd recommend any of Focusrite's products. I've used the Saffire PRO24. Works great. It uses the better DACs from Cirrus (-106 dB THD as I recall) and the flagship Cirrus DAC CS4398 if I recall correctly for the headphone out.

I'm tempted to get one of the Scarlett series as they take USB input. The Saffire is FireWire.

I am fully statisfied with the sound quality of this program. Only the user interface should be better and some practical functions a little improved...

IMO, system wide crossover system is the way to go. DSP features in JRiver are for JRiver only so using JRiver for crossover ties to use JRiver only (i.e JRiver this JRiver that).

Yes, you are right!
This is why I am using both, JRiver und EqAPO.
The first for listening quality music (ASIO), the last for common use e.g. system sounds, youtube, games so on (DirectSound)...
