    Default PS/2 MCA sound cards at a fair price (DOS Games, mainly)

    https://www.calhountech.com/products...furbished.html

    IBM M-ACPA sound adapters, and not just a few. U.S. or Canada shipping only, unless you can persuade them.
    Not very good for Win 95/98/98SE games, but YMMV.

    But it's Maudio based....You would have to be criminally insane to think you could make one of those work right.

    Win Windows games, agreed. But fine for .WAV file audio and DOS games. As said, YMMV.

    Major Tom has a sweet Rev D that he's been diddling with. He's done the pinout for the ACPA expansion connector. Now the struggle is better software support for the DSP. ACPA source is freely available
