I've had similar hits and misses with USB audio solutions, as a general
rule I now avoid them, for consumer use they are fine but for a more
professional environment I've found they lack reliability.
In my opinion you're better off with an actual card. I will also echo
having good results with m-audio delta stuff. The biggest difficulty
that I've run into is with the M-Audio Delta 1010 (the one with the
external rack mount breakout box). I've experienced capacitors going
bad in the breakout boxes resulting in loss of audio and / or poor audio
quality. In every one of these, after replacing the capacitors -
everything has returned to full functionality.
The Delta 44's and 66's don't experience this - their breakout boxes are
just pass-through boxes if I recall correctly (it has been a while since
I've had one of those apart).
