PCI -> Firewire adapters

Is there a big difference in quality/sability depending on the brand?

I'm currently running a sound card and a tc powecore through a card whose brand name is not anything spectacular. Could this be the cause for some sync'ing issues i've been getting with the powercore?

If so... any recommendations on a particularily audio-friendly FW card would be appreciated...

i think any ol' firewire card should do the trick. I wen't to china town and got a cheap ass one for like 15 bucks. Works fine with all my firewire gear

thanks for the info...

I also found a useful tip on tc's site.. if you're running a powercore and a soundcard, both on firewire, they should be on two separate FW ports - read: using two separate FW adapter cards. Just figured I'd pass that little nugget on..

apparently you're more likely to get sychronization problems when the two are using the same bus. that's as much as I know...
