I have relatively high quality audio using TRS 1/4" or XLR (my choice) that I'd like a computer to be able to use as an input device. I'm hoping for it to be 24-bit- is there an inexpensive sound card that can do this? Or are there other methods, such as USB? All of the USB solutions seem to be 16-bit.
Is there a noticeable loss in quality if I simply use an adapter and take in 3.5mm on a decent sound card?
