An ESS1688 is the way to go:

Well, is it really that simple? Why the 1688? I had a similar question I posted here a while ago: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=53158

And ultimately the 1868 is basically the same chip as a 1688 but integrates PnP, ATAPI controllers, full duplex mono and 3D spatial sound (albeit a shitty one). The 1869 is 48KHz so less desirable due to sampling shenanigans, I get that, but it also has full duplex stereo so it's a tradeoff.

Did you read my post about the 1688? I think I expressed my opinion pretty clearly. And I'll ask you this now too - why are you posting about SB Pro 2 clones in a SB16 clone thread?
If it's broke, then fix it!

For the same reason that you are responding to it; i.e. it's relevant. But fair enough, I apologize if I derailed the subject.
