    I monitor through a TASCAM UH-7000 (which is a 2 channel USB interface with Burr Brown converters). I don't use it as an interface though, so it's USB connection isn't even hooked up to my PC. It is being fed via and SPDIF to AES/EBU digital cable from my Focusrite Saffire Pro 40, which is my main interface. The conversion on the Tascam unit is just light years ahead of the Focusrite. Switching over was one of the best moves I've made, and at $350-400 depending on where you look for the Tascam unit, it is on par with MUCH more expensive units. If you're currently in the market for converters, I urge you to read the reviews on this bad boy before plunking down 3X as much cash for something else.
