SIIG CE-S00012-S2 Virtual 7.1-channel Surround Sound USB Audio Adapter

The SIIG USB SoundWave 7.1 is a portable, plug-and-play USB sound card for Windows PC, giving you an easy way to add high-quality audio to your computer. Just connect it to your headphones or stereo speakers via its 3.5mm stereo jack at one end and hook it up to your computer via a USB 2.0 interface at the other end, and then it’s ready to work.

This unit will simulate 7.1-channel sound to headphones or 2-channel speakers, giving your PC home-theater quality sound. You can fully immerse yourself in surround sound. You can place speakers to preferred positions without moving actual speakers via the Speaker Shifter utility. Customize your sound according to your preferences by using the Xear 3D Software.

Key Features

Enjoy Virtual 7.1-channel Surround Sound

The USB SoundWave 7.1 delivers virtual 7.1 channel surround sound, providing your PC with home-theater quality sound via your headphones or stereo speakers. It effectively reduces unwanted static and noises from D/A processing, while its built-in amplifier pumps out rich and robust sound that delights the auditory senses.

Advanced Speaker Shifter Utility

You'll be able to optimize audio quality via the speaker shifter utility. This innovative control panel allows you to adjust audio levels to compensate for rooms where surround sound speakers cannot be installed in perfect acoustic locations. The USB SoundWave 7.1 also supports such nifty standards as EAX 2.0, A3D 1.0 and Microsoft DirectSound 3D.

Xear 3D Software

Xear 3D software offers 27 environment effects and three environment sizes, plus a 10-band equalizer with presets or manual configuration. This gives you the ultimate flexibility to tailor your listening experience.

Plug-and- play

The USB SoundWave 7.1 supports plug-and- play for simple installation. And, it obtains power from the USB port. No power adapter is needed.

5 out of 5 eggsAnd for only one payment of 19.99

Pros: Got this to fix an issue with my Corsair D800 front headphone jack crapping out (no help from Corsair btw). This little bugger puts out great sound for the price. Used the surround sound software turned on my PVR1600 and watched HDTV 5.1 surround and got blown away. With the headphones on sounded as though people were all around me.

Cons: Have this plugged into a front horizontal USB port, and not sure if the cord weight and all will put stress on the 1/4 plug in portion of this unit, only time will tell.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 X64 ultimate installed with no problems used software disc after Windows 7 found its drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Server 2003

Pros: Had a client that wanted audio on a Windows Server 2003 system that did not have the correct slots for a normal PCI audio card, this was an affordable solution that got the job done.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Hackintosh Community

Pros: using a MSI Wind with OS X installed you can use this adapter to regain control of your audio input/output since there are still issues with getting the OEM audio card working. See MSIwind forums for more info,

Cons: SO far none, solved a huge peeve of mine

Cons: dosnt work with itunes,

Other Thoughts: it gets confusing when its on or when ur using your default audio thingy

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for what it is

Pros: It does exactly what it says it will do. 7.1 effects from two speakers. The utilities work fine, and I've had no problems with the drivers in WINXP. If you are using a laptop (or PC) with a cheesy sound card, this is a nice cheap upgrade.

Cons: Nothing worthy of noting

Other Thoughts: I have used this for gaming and listening to music. The sound difference between my D600 work laptop output (snaps, crackles and pops) and the USB output (nothing but what I'm playing) is amazing.

2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you? Yes No

2 out of 5 eggsNo support

Pros: It sounds good and does what it says. Great for traveling

Cons: After three weeks it died. Siig would not return emails, although twice I received an email that they received my email. Just remember NO SERVICE OR SUPPORT
