Default Raspberry Pi Audio Card

I am working on moving my feeds to Raspberry Pi's to save on electricity. I found a great tutorial on this site with an image that I got working. I'm currently using a cheap $3 USB sound card I bought off eBay and I'm not happy with the sound quality, and the drivers leave much to be desired.

Does anyone have recommendations on a good USB card to use?

Haven't used one under Linux in some time but I use Griffin iMics under Windows and they seem to have excellent audio quality.
Here is one page that might help when I did a search:

Good luck and keep us posted!

I've used a Griffin iMic on a Pi. Seemed to work ok.

Sorry but I don't accept PM's. Please use email instead.
