Presonus is the notable exception to the above, and one of the only
firewire cards with linux support. Check the reviews in Sound on Sound
or other pro engineering mags. I would honestly say that if you want to
go mic->pre->card for under a grand total, they are the way to go. The
pres on the presonus are *better* than on most small mixing boards by
quite a bit. Of course they are not going to stack up against external
dedicated pres. In that case, I'd say the FMR really nice pre is the
best bet, especially combined with the RNC and RNLA ( Really Nice
Compressor and Really Nice Levelling Amplifier. ) But truthfully, I
don't think a sub $500 mic needs a pre better than the ones on the
presonus cards. They are way better than the similar offerings from
M-Audio or Edirol.

Hope that is helpful
