I also did a test or two, the results are up on my web page: http://www.nsdev.org/gina.shtml The tests placed the GINA in the top ranking in the sound-card category. I imagine your -60db noise floor was because the AutoTrim was done on something that had very little signal. So it would try to maximize the noise. Not a good thing. I'd suggest hooking up a nice loud signal, a hot microphone preamp, or a VCR output, and then do an autotrim. You'll get a really nice signal to noise ratio.
