Sound card for use with LP Pan and K3

Bob Benedict, KD8CGH

I recently bought a Behringer UMC202HC for use with my original LP-PAN and it works well with my K3. It's a great combo with WIN43K software.

I hadn't used the LP-PAN in some years and the  old Creative EMU 0202 whose most recent driver was released in 2011 under Windows VISTA  was just not working with  WIN 10.

I am using the U5.  I have the U7 and the Beringer on the shelf as back ups.  I tried the beringer and it had harmonic issues, so went back to the U5.   

So far, happy with the U5

If it was me, I'd ask Larry. The Xonars are nice units, although, years ago, I'd heard about reliability issues, I think with the 7.

I am using an LP Pan / Win4K3Suite (Win10) as a panadapter for my K3.  I have been using a ASUS Xonar U7 for a number of years.  It's served me well but is now showing signs of critical failures and needs to be retired.  I'm looking for a replacement 128kHz sound card that's reliable and provides a good noise floor.  The recommendations on the haven't been updated since 2018.  Are there any sound cards that stand out as current top runners for this setup?  Personal experience preferred.  Thanks!

In a brief search, I found the following.
Xonar U5
Xonar U7 MKII
Steinberg UR22

Are there any of these that stand out or any others that I missed?
