I'm just curious if you have a preference on ADC manufacturers. I know we generally don't get a chance to look at the ICs, but for those of you that have or build kit I'd like to hear about it.

Whilst it's pretty clear cut on DACs, I find it hard to know what's good and bad when it comes to ADCs.

I'm currently using a machine with onboard Realtek, whilst the recordings are pretty decent I do wonder if it's thinning out anything. Is there anything obvious that will be lost on these entry level ICs that is audible?
