A question about "M-Audio Firewire Solo" or similar devices:
As manual claims "SNR" is -101dB at "min gain". And the device provides 40dB of gain.
That means noise will increase with cranking the gain knob?

And do I still need earth connection with this device? coz I need with my PCI soundcard?

Thanks in advance.

Don't double post.

And yes, the gain knob controls gain...that was easy.
As for the other question, I'd say just hit up customer service...
I'm quite sure if you use a 6pin 6pin firewire cable it can leech power off your computer, my Firebox does that.
