Summary: Just what I wanted: The unit worked just as I was hoping. I plugged it in to the USB port, attached my Logitech speakers up and enjoyed my music again. This unit was easy to install, the speaker hook was easy and I would recommend it to others.
Summary: I love all the different settings it has and how easy it is to use.i love the 5.1 surround sound and how I can adjust each speaker I have connected to it. not at all disappointed. very satisfied customer.
Works with Ubuntu 12.10/13.04/13.10 & Linux Mint 15 (Olivia)

Summary: I'm going to keep this review short and sweet because my sentiments have already been expressed by other reviewers. This device works with the two most popular Linux operating systems, Ubuntu (plus all related distributions such as Xubuntu) and Linux Mint 15. It works flawlessly in Ubuntu 12.10. Occasionally in 13.04 and 13.10 playback will start skipping for no apparent reason, but this can be fixed with a system reboot.
Summary: I use this with my laptop. It is the only way I know of to play DTS or Dolby 5.1 from BluRays and video files with digital sound tracks from a laptop. I would and DO recommend this to anyone who connects to your television with HDMI and also wants the home theater surround sound. I connect a optical (toslink) from this to my Logitech Z906 speakers. This is better than the Creative sound card in my desktop.
Summary: I bought this product just to listen to music while doing homework or any writing-related work. It has done a good job of improving the quality of the music I listen to. A friend listened to some music with the device, and in comparison with the on-board sound card of my laptop said that she could here more parts of songs.
Summary: Great sound for music, games and movies... Especially love to be able to use 5.1 devices on my laptop (headphones / speakers)... If you want to improve your sound quality, look no further!! Regarding the seller, nothing to report... The order arrived from US to France with no issue whatsoever...
Summary: Bought this so that I could use the black & orange 3.5 millimeter surround sound cables with my Logitech Z506 5.1 speakers. I'm on the computer a lot, and I've had this for almost a year now, and it hasn't failed me yet. Remote is a nice little bonus too.
