Strange Recording Problem

Thomas L., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: Mostly worked as promised. Connected very easily, does NOT need to be reconnected after laptop standby.
  • Cons: I bought this specifically for a laptop that is more or less permanently connected to my stereo. The output was fine, though I used the stereo out only. But I needed this to be able to record, since the laptop did not have a stereo input. I would guess that I had ripped from vinyl about 16 hours ...

  • Summary: My internal sound card stopped working, so I bought this. People seem to have had problems with the digital outputs. I have not tested them. As for the analog everything works perfectly so far.

Great device!

Alexander H., Newegg
23 May 2015
  • Summary: In order to get it to work with your VM you must use either the vSphere local client or the web client. If you RDP to it, it will just pick it up as a generic device.
  • Pros: Fantastic sounds card! Great price and lots of options! I am using it with ESXi5.5 in a PowerEdge R710 to pass audio from my weather radios and police/EMS scanners to my audio streaming server.
  • Cons: None at the moment

Works great with my Sennheiser Momentum 2 headphones

Steve R. Hastings, Amazon
12 May 2015
  • Summary: I bought this to use with my travel headphones, Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 wired headphones. The M2 headphones are very efficient, which means that I can hear even a little bit of noise. When I plugged them into my business laptop, I heard an annoying hiss.

EXTERNAL SOUND CARD

RICHARD F., Newegg
7 May 2015
  • Pros: Arrived on time, installed easily, worked the first time even without loading the driver. Loaded the driver and I think it sounds even better. Solved a problem for me without having to go inside and install something on the motherboard. That was a problem because it is hard to find a sound board ...

Does not support 7.1 output on Windows 8.1

Somebody who thinks you should take my opinion with a grain of salt, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: Apparently supports 7.1 audio on every semi-recent Windows OS (even 2000) EXCEPT 8.1. Latest driver on their web page has a note indicating only 2.1 audio is supported on Windows 8.1--and I can't imagine anyone needing to buy an external device for stereo, given pretty much every motherboard these...

This thing really works like a pro equip

Shaun Roach, Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: I was honestly scared that this was gonna be one of those "too good.but to be true" but this works like a charm, compared to those 50+ it's cheaper, real simple to use as of plug in, pc or Mac, it works, just need to calibrate the volume on the computer which you would need to look up yourself, so...

Works Great

Michael W., Newegg
27 January 2015
  • Summary: If you have newer stereo equipment with spidf those in and out those are on the back so it might look better sitting on a desk.
  • Pros: Works well with Windows 8.1 and surround speakers, Mine are 5.1. The default drivers provided by windows operate without trouble, try it out before using the provided CD. The power light is not obtrusive when watching a movie in the dark. Volume control and mute buttons work too.
  • Cons: Small form factor means the USB input is on the back and the stereo jacks on the front. That means it doesn't look very pretty sitting on your desktop. My old phillips psc805 aurilium was bigger but looked and functioned better as a desktop audio controller.

This was a good solution for me instead of buying and installing a ...

ES, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Works as a described. Plugged into free USB port on a PC running Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 64-bit and it automatically installed the drivers, plugged in my computer speaker cable into the headphone icon jack on the StarTech.com USB Stereo Audio Adapter External Sound Card ICUSBAUDIOB, and had...
