About the DMAN
The DMAN is a full-featured, yet low-cost digital audio card with
a built-in MPU401 interface and a header for an optional
wavetable synthesis daughterboard. The DMAN features 16-bit
stereo sampling at various frequencies from 5.53 to 48 kHz, fullduplex
digital audio, 64 times oversampled D/A and A/D
converters, and an onboard analog mixer.
The DMAN uses the world’s first Plug-and-Play chip set for
digital audio and includes a subset of the Windows Sound
System 2.0 architecture. Also, the Windows ’95 driver software
fully supports DirectSound.

the windows 3.11 drivers are h ere + dated as january 3rd 1997
