Any recommendations on what sound hardware we /should/ use?

It's useful to know what to avoid, but it's more helpful to know what to 
get instead.

I looked on the mailing list for posts with subjects that included the 
word "recommend" and searched the wiki for the word "recommend" and I 
found nothing aimed at listing what sound hardware we should use.

I'd prefer:

- cards we can buy today, not just audio chipsets found in 
laptops/mainboards that require replacing the entire system (or mainboard).

- hardware that would work with free software drivers and not require 
binary blobs because I run PulseAudio on a completely free system where 
I endeavor to avoid all proprietary software.

Thanks for PulseAudio!
