    I am a user/owner of Lynx Audio's cards; they have a 8/8 solution that I would suggest.

    Exceptional convertors, excellent driver support. Just totally pro level stuff that sounds great.

    m-audio also has a few soundcards that'll fit the bill.

    As far as using two sound cards simultaneously, I have never heard of anyone doing it. Depending on the DAW that you are using it may be possible, but all of the DAWS that I use (Cubase SX 3.0 mainly) only allows signal from one soundcard at a time.

    If you are on PC hands down best sound card you can buy for the price range is the
    Pre-Sonus FirePod. If you are on a MAC the next best soundcard is a MOTU 896
    Check out the websites for more info.

    I will double that for the M-Audio cards. Even their 410 24/96 card is superb sounding. I use a 24 Track Mackie and only use the card for in and out during mastering, but I love it and you cant beat the price on them. :p
