    Plugged in and around 30 seconds later you are ready to rock and roll with the system making a noticeable difference to the music we played. Because there is a soundcard included within the box of tricks any sound you output from your PC will be enhanced rather than just music.

Customer Reviews

  • N. Duvall

    A great little external sound card with quality audio. Simple to install and easy to use interface. The only short-fall is that there is no through for digital I/O which would of been handy for 'daisy chaining'. All-in-all a product I'd recommend.

  • N. Lim

    Sound card is very good. Bought it for my friend and its perfect gift.

  • M. Newman

    Great solution to not having line in on laptop. Enhances sound playbackas well as providing a great way of digitising my music collection of cassette tape and vinyl. End result is perfect
