It all depends, FXO is never truly reliable with all the disconnect
supervision / hangup detection woes.
A FXO card works as well as it can but traditionally requires an
echo canceler if you want quality that
will not draw complaints from your best QA testers, your family for instance
who expect identical
quality to the PSTN.  The Sangoma cards for instance have this.

The good thing about an ATA is that it's self-contained and translates
everything into SIP for you when
you don't have room for hardware.

It's not worth cutting corners on telephone quality when, in the end, you
will replace it once you get enough
