I currently work with the Motorola 56k on an Atari Falcon 030

very flexible, the audio data can be routed from and to  
DMA(for D2D), DAC, ADC, and DSP    thanks to a matrix.

The DAC are 16bit stereo at 49170 Hz.

As the Atari also includes a MIDI interface, it can be conveniently
transformed into a synthesizer.

Another point is that you can buy second hand Falcons at a very low
price (cos they are not PC DOS Windoz compatible, you can't play
