Can't speak to compatibility with NSpeaking, but I use a
Audigy NX external at 96 KHz Sample Rate @ 24-Bit &
have no issues. However, the Composite USB device
does reserve 45-60% of the USB bandwidth on it's channel.
So, you'd want to avoid installing it with other heavy BW
devices on the same USB controller.
