By Kamerat about yet untested cards:
ALS4000
Pros:
Sound Blaster 16 support - its mentioned because majority of cards support only 8 bit SB, SB pro - 16 bit sound should be superior.
Works on later VIA chipsets in DDMA mode => In theory it could be best card for VIA 880 Ultra.
Works at least up to the SiS 645DX+962UA chipset in DDMA mode
FM very true to OPL3
Cons:
Noisy, especially the FM part = > Bad thing, very bad thing..
The other DMA modes (WBDMA and WSDMA) are really unstable, so no use for this card on ICH chipsets => Very probably no fun with my i865 / X58.
FM801-AU
Pros:
Works on ICH chipset up to ICH5 in "legacy mode 2" as the initializer calls it => R: So it least i865 should work, ICH10 its not working for FX as expected.
Works on later VIA, SiS and ULi chipsets in "legacy mode 1/2" => In theory it could be best card for VIA 880 Ultra.
Clean output
SPDIF output that works in DOS
Good sounding FM, but not totally true to OPL3
Cons:
Problems getting the right sample rate when playing back PCM
Stability issues when using the MPU-401 interface in Duke Nukem 3D // R: So general midi problem, its not big deal for me..
Trident 4DWave-NX
Pros:
Sound Blaster 16 support
Works on later VIA chipsets in Tridents own TSR-less DMA mode
Clean output
Cons:
Awful FM emulation by TSR
Does not work on ICH chipsets without a PC/PCI connection => Very probably no fun with my i865 / X58.
Needs the TSR loaded for setting the right sample rate during PCM playback (can be set manually with 3rd pary tool)
Broken wavetable part that also need TSR
