Summary: I am so glad that I stumbled on this product. I have an Intel nuc running openelec 4.07 in my home theatre what I also had a pair of pioneer wireless 5.1 wireless headphones for times when my little one is trying to sleep in the next room. The issue was the headphone had an optical input and I needed something to passththrough DTS audio to my headset. And can I say that I am pleasantly surprised with how it JUST worked!
Works well, follow instructions to install newest Win XP, 7, 8 compatible driver from Website, plays Dolby Digital TV Signals

Summary: I got this because I wanted to attach a pair of Turtle Beach Wireless Tango headphones I got for $69 on clearance. You really do have to follow the instructions to get it installed with the "Have Disk" option, but after 5 minutes it was done. You have two choices in Windows Sound after you hook it up to the optical on the headphones - speaker out and digital out.
Summary: This device is very end of life and puts you through some hurdles to get it running on more modern machines. It also has a limited selection of surround sound encodings it can drive a system with. I wouldn't say I regret the purchase as it does put out fantastic digital audio, but you may want to consider a different product. That being said this is the best dongle in this price range, the nicer ones run you a lot more.
Driver doesn't work with Win7, and Turtle Beach won't have my Business ever again!

Summary: I bought this because it was advertised to get my DolbyDigital back to my Turtle Beach Headphones. I downloaded and followed the OEMs instruction for the x64 Driver only to find that they aren't digitally signed. I disabled the Win7 Driver Signiture integrity, The Driver installer still could not find the sound card and refused to install. I found a couple of work arrounds, but they only worked marginally.
Summary: I purchased this product to stream audio from my laptop PC into my home theatre system. The Dell laptop uses Windows 7 Pro and the audio stream is from Itunes. The unit does work however I MUST use a generic Windows 7 driver as the Turtle Beach Micro II driver does NOT install correctly. When trying to use the Turtle Beach driver the Micro II adaptor is not recognized and/or Windows reports that this driver is not digitally signed.
Summary: I use it with a Raspberry Pi (without a powered hub) that currently runs MusicBox, to listen to Spotify, but have also tested it with some FLAC files. If you only need analog, you might be put off by the higher price, but even then it's a bargain. Crisp and clear sound, all round.
Summary: I am on my second one of these Micro II USB cards now. The first one I purchased lasted 5 years and I did not hesitate to buy another once i had issues because someone damaged it at my apartment. These provide crystal clear sound that far exceeds the analog counterpart.
Summary: I bought this when my motherboard built-in audio card stopped working. I should have checked closer. This Audio Advantage by Turtle Beach does not have a microphone jack but it works great otherwise. Win7 64bit.
