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
