Dear all,
I am wondering if anyone knows what the future of good soundcards looks like. At 
the moment I rely on expresscard connectors (RME + an old focusrite using 
firewire). I started realising that most new laptops don't have expresscard 
slots any longer so this option seems to be closing. Does anyone have any 
experience getting sound working through a USB<-expresscard adapter? Or should I 
hurry up and buy a new laptop (my current one is 7 YO) before I ran out of 
options? Would new soundcards being developed use USB3? Or?
