The alesis io2 has hi-z inputs and it works as it is class compliant. It's
usb powered which is very handy. You can't go much low in latency (it
works reliably at 11ms) but is very cheap. I paid 40 eur used for mine.

Hi,

I'm thinking about buying a new sound card for recording guitar. As mos=
t recommendations I've seen on the Net are quite old (latest I could ge=
t was from 2012), I'm asking here to get more current information :-)

My current setup is a V-Amp 2 connected through the headphones' output =
and a stereo jack to the line-in input in my computer. It's got an AMD =
Phenom 945, 12GB RAM and a built-in HDA Intel clone. It works, but it's=
noisy and I think it distorts sound when I pump up the volume. I've al=
so tried a Behringer UCG-102, but it adds a hefty amount of latency (60-70 =
ms as measured by qjackctl).

I'm not searching for anything "pro", just something cheap (&=
lt;150=80) to play and sometimes record at home. I wouldn't mind a PCI/=
PCIe card, though I worry that two or three years from now computers stop c=
arrying PCI slots and I have to get rid of it. Searching for USB compatible=
devices, I've seen the Shappire 2i2, but reports of it working on Linu=
x are mixed. A pity, because it sure looks good :-)

So, based on this, what would you recommend?

Thanks in advance,
