MPEG Sound Cards

The AudioScience range of MPEG sound cards includes models for both PCI Express and legacy PCI. MPEG cards offer a choice of uncompressed PCM, MPEG layer 2 and MP3 for both playback and record. All cards are supported by our low latency ASIO driver in Windows and the ALSA Linux driver.
