Well, I do have the Omega. But I bought it used at a quarter of the
current retail price. I've never seen such a deal on a delta 1010lt.
Also, I have had reason to have a portable interface. And when I'm at
home, the Omega replaced my mixing board (all 8 inputs are active at
once and go through a simple level only 8x4x2 onboard mixer).
The Delta1010lt is probably a good bit lower latency, but if you don't
need real time software effects, and if you don't need to record more
than 4 tracks at once, and you don't need 96khz sampling, then most
signs point towards the Omega.
If I was going for a PCI card for home to use in the most straight
forward manner, I would go for a Delta 66, and I would hunt on ebay for
the best deal I could find. (just don't ask why I'm going with a Marian
Marc 4 instead).
And frankly, I'd be unlikely to buy any of the devices we've talked
about new. I buy cables new. I buy things new if I need them more
quickly than I can order them. I buy things new if they just can't be
found for a good price used. But if I have time to wait for delivery, I
always look for used first.
