This versatile External USB Sound Card/Audio Adapter offers a high quality solution for upgrading desktop or laptop sound.

Providing a robust USB audio experience, the USB sound card connects to a host computer through a single USB 2.0 connection, to deliver impressive external audio capability that can instantly be swapped between systems, without having to open the computer case for installation.

Supporting analog and digital audio for 2 to 7.1 channel audio applications, the external USB sound card provides a cost-saving upgrade from built-in/on-board sound that turns desktop/laptop sound into a home theater-ready audio solution.

The external USB sound card features easy-to-use volume control and two external microphone inputs - a convenient solution for any audio application requiring high quality sound with multi-input capability with support for 44.1 KHz and 48 KHz sampling rates for both playback and recording.

A more than suitable solution for home theater, gaming or multi-media presentations, the External USB Sound Card is easy to install with plug and play support in Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

Designed to deliver a long-lasting and dependable sound solution, the External USB Sound Card/Audio Adapter is backed by our 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Pros
Price, usb cable included
Cons
Very limited optical support under windows 8.1
Summary
Purchased this to fill a specific requirement for a USB digital audio output and in spite of several attempts at different settings and/or drivers it simply does not fully meet those requirements.

Output seems to be limited to 48Khz 2 channel PCM, and supporting software doesn't appear to have any control over the audio. There isn't even a balance option let alone working EQ.

I suspect the issue might be related to poor driver support under windows 8.0/8.1 but haven't tested under windows7 to verify. It should also be noted that this issue seems to be an issue with all USB c-media chip based audio products (even the higher end creative model is suspect).


Would have given it a 2 rating, but wasn't sure if it'd make it onto the site with that... Would definitely not purchase again.
