I have decided to upgrade my integrated sound card and after reviewing many options am currently considering the Musiland Monitor 02. I've decided I want an external audio interface as I often switch between ATH-A700 cans and a Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system, although I plan to upgrade to some KRK Rokit (or similar) monitors sometime soon.

My problem is that I often like to play and record from vinyl albums and the Monitor 02 doesn't have any inputs. I have looked at other options like the EMU 0404 and 0202, and the Cakewalk UA-4FX. These options offer the inputs I need (and some I don't need) but I am afraid they won't provide the sound quality I have read about with the Musiland. I know the EMU and Cakewalk units are designed more for recording, but they seem to have many of the features I am looking for.

Is there an easy way to add an input to my pc so I can use my turntable with the Musiland as my sound card? Also, I sometimes use a PC mic while playing games and Im not sure how I will use it without leaving my integrated sound card installed. Are there other sound cards or audio interfaces I should consider? Any input appreciated!
