Insert an External Sound Card This external USB sound card lets you add an SPDIF digital audio output and standard 3.5mm analog stereo audio and microphone link with your system through USB - a convenient means to circumvent or replace an internal sound card and never having to open the computer case. Excellent Sound Quality For home theater quality sound, this external USB DAC (digital to analog converter) offers 96KHz / 24-bit viewing rates for both playback and recording, and a 3.5millimeter SPDIF port with support for Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound (AC3) and DTS pass-through (Notice: 5.1 surround sound is supported in Windows only). Versatile Functionality This elastic USB audio adapter includes a 3.5mm 4-position TRRS connection for your headphones or combination headset/microphone. A convenient external volume controller for quick alterations, also a hardware EQ switch for Bass or Treble boosting, along with an LED statusbar to show the current sampling speed. This USB stereo audio port is excellent for all applications, for example connecting your computer to a home entertainment audio receiver through SPDIF without opening the case, replacing or updating the integrated audio on your portable PC or laptop and adding digital audio support to a Ultrabook or small form factor system without any internal expansion options. This USB external sound card audio port is endorsed with a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
