Works good

  • Summary: Don´t use on a USB hub
  • Pros: Works good, I did not really hear any sound improvement but the driver changes that drastically. The bass boosting is a nice feature, especially if you listen to dubstep.
  • Cons: N/A

Works grea

William W., Newegg
6 January 2013
  • Pros: This is a hot little gadget, the blue vacuum tube glow is a sweet design. So as far as looks goes, its awesome. Luckily, it sounds pretty awesome too. Definitely an improvement over my dell vostro V130 laptop sound. The sound is good on its own, but once I installed the 5.1 software and pressed the NeoPC music button, it really came to life. Apparently it utilizes your CPU for sound processing, it works perfectly on my i3.
  • Cons: Word of caution! I initially had this plugged into a USB hub and all i heard was crackle, crackle, crackle! I thought it wasn't going to work, but then I had the genius idea to plug it directly into the laptop USB port and eureka, no problems after that.

Great adapter and sound

  • Summary: The sound driver for my notebook doesn't recover from hibernate without a reboot. No such issues with this adapter.
  • Pros: My best results have been with a good quality stereo, 2-ch source. The soundfield through my Senheisser headphones is noticibly improved. Small size is great for my notebook.
  • Cons: none

Not at all impressed

Vishal J., Newegg
7 September 2011
  • Summary: vacuum tube design with blue glow is kinda cool.
  • Pros: None really..may be, the old vacuum tube looks and glow
  • Cons: This adapter is meant for experiencing DTS surround sound. I was hoping that it would some how make stereo sound clearer and distinct. But even after trying it out with a number of 5.1-channel test audio clips (from THX, DTS itself), I did not find it impressive at all. To me it does nothing but creates more noise, and cheap surround effect, but not DTS experience.
