Soundcard Test Results Thread

Hi to all!

The computer based reception of DRM Transmisssions depends very much on the quality of the soundcards you use in your PC. I/Q-Receiver concepts, like the new SDR from Elektor, rely on that even more. So it's maybe useful to know, if your soundcard is capable for good reception.

Best test-setup for comparison would be to use the Soundcardtester from Elektor 07/05, available at AK-Modulbus (www.ak-modul-bus.de/stat/soundkartentester.html ) , explained at http://www.elexs.de/iq4.htm#tester, some other results and connection diagram at: http://www.b-kainka.de/iqrx3.htm

Please post your soundcard-test-results here for comparison.

Ok, the first results arrived and i try to make a summery here at the first post

Soundcards that should work very good with I/Q SDR's:

Soundcards that work good with I/Q SDR's:

Soundcards which you can use for start, but work less good:

Soundcards you should avoid for I/Q SDR use:


It seems to be that the level of image rejection can differ from one Soundcard-Tester to another one. So more or less image rejection in following posts don't need to mean weak image rejection in the real RX.
