Features
The Amigo II USB sound card adds a stereo output and mic input to a Mac or PC and converts a standard headset into a USB headset. Because it uses a USB digital connection, the Amigo II isolates the audio signal from the noisy electronics inside a PC or laptop to provide higher-quality sound. With a single USB connection, the Amigo II lets you conveniently add another sound port to your PC or laptop for easy access wherever you go. The stereo output can be used for connecting powered speakers, headphones or an external recording device. The microphone input can be used for connecting an external microphone or the boom mic on a headset. Amigo is a great accessory for laptop owners who want to enjoy high-quality audio on the road or at home.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Not a single one. This thing is junk.

Cons: Just plug in and it works! Not really. There are also no driver downloads on the manufacturer website. Only a text file that says you don't need drivers. Attempted to live chat support, waiting 15 minutes to connect to someone, no one ever showed up. Currently going back and forth with email support, but I can see me returning this piece of junk and buying a new internal sound card.

Other Thoughts: I don't care what they say, it's not plug and play for jack. Worked fine on an XP computer, but not 64 bit Vista or Windows 7. Well, I don't need it for the XP computer, I need it for the Vista 64 computer. Why they don't have driver downloads is beyond me. Very stupid.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the best

Pros: Worked. It gave me sound on my computer.
Easy to install.

Cons: Quality was extremely bad, a beeping/buzzing constantly occurred. Broke for no reason over night...

Other Thoughts: I bought this a few months ago because the onboard sound on my "TUFF" asus sabertooth 990fx broke because of what seems to be a .5 mm light scratch on the fiber cables that run down the side of the motherboard. This thing worked for a while but the quality was lacking. But it did its job, last night I was using it and this morning it did'nt work. I tried everything. I am just going to get an actual pci sound card this time or maybe a new motherboard...

5 out of 5 eggsFine, just fine

Pros: It works.. Seriously, plug and play, no drivers needed for Windows. Darn thing just works.

Cons: Microphone still a teensy bit quiet but not horribly so.

Other Thoughts: This was to fix a microphone problem I had in a Lenovo Y500. An otherwise nearly perfect laptop, it's microphone jack is completely useless without a mic pre-amp. Got the laptop for a great price so I wasn't going to return it and I know this is a problem with similar laptops (the Sager / Cleo line up comes to mind). In comes Turtle Beach with a $30 solution that worked right the first time. No drivers needed. When I want to use my laptop speakers instead of a headset, I just unplug the Amigo. My headset will probably be permanently attached to the Amigo. Thank you Turtle Beach. I'm saddened that your once great empire of sound cards got pushed to the side by the likes of Creative Labs and Realtek. The former making only one good sound card: The original SoundBlaster (They had to buy Ensoniq to get their next good card) and the latter making a good... Well, nothing good really.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works, onboard sound on my brand new z77 sabertooth went out, and instead of taking apart my whole rig, I bought this. Works great.

Cons: The only con is that it has a buzzing sound and beeping sound its quiet but can get annoying, it might just be mine but it makes it loose two eggs just for that.

4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: 1. Durable--usb dongle
2. Adds ability to use headphones, micropohones, VOIP, DAC, etc.
3. Adds ability to avoid onboard sound and problems
4. Doesn't use the single PCI slot on newer boards or a PCI-EX1 slot
5. Easy Plug 'n play--Win, Mac, and Linux/Ubuntu (12.10 here)
6. Good to own when your sound circuitry or card dies or suffers interference and distortion.
7. Somewhat "taut" sound.
8. Useful for laptops.
9. Turtle Beach/Voyetra support and quality. Likely lasts longer than competitors at this level--dongle feature a plus.
10. Bus powered--no a/c adapter or power cords.
11. Simple and "idiot proof."
12. Way cheaper than today's better sound board solutions.

Cons: 1. Not very efficient. Had to turn volume way up on my receiver. Bus power is limiting.
2. USB codec sound controls--a separate sound system: Not as configurable as onboard or soundcard controls through OS (especially Win or Mac). Somewhat primitive control yet generally workable.
3. Price is higher than some competing models more directly related to common PRC fabricators.
4. Limited and simple analog, via USB codec--may not thrill the user as a good PCI-EX or better PCI card might these days.
5. Need to know how to change sound controls to those of this USB codec device--or to get assistance.

Other Thoughts: I had hum through my onboard sound on my Win XP system. I had thought that my green sound jack had become loose. I later found that the culprit was a cable box.

The sound is good in its way--it reminds me of VIA soundcards in the PCI days--a taut sound. (I'm pretty certain that the chip is from C-Media, though. That's true of it's sister product, the "Micro II," at least. That product lacks a mic jack but adds digital (not EAX, of course--no SPDIF better than stereo from Voyetra).

I'm glad to own this product as a future workaround for sound problems with boards and cards. Also, it allows easy access to headphone usage--an easy, elegant solution that gets around front sound ports, idiot proprietary case cables, and board ports.

The product seems extremely durable--I'll likely forget about it until needed--a good thing: I can be quite confident that it will work as needed and intended.

The USB dongle feature adds durability--no doubt about it--that's a big plus. It's rubberized-type (heavy cord-type) plastic will last a good while and protect its innards well--it's better than the hard, ultimately brittle plastic of many competitor models.

It's hard to find anything soundboard--USB-ready--perhaps besides expensive and complex gamer competitors in stores. I'm glad that Newegg got this to me--it will prove useful! I'll likely never need to repurchase.

I may as well forget stores! I'm not going to waste gas anymore. Newegg always has been the very reliable and expert online vendor for PC hobbyists and system builders at all levels--extremely speedy shipping to most areas is a hallmark--they get packages out very quickly. (I consider Newegg as the "Emperor" of the PC-builder parts biz!) I'm interested now in other offerings from the Great Vendor, as well!

5 out of 5 eggsNeed this for Steam games

Pros: The RAZER headsets I use come with 3.5mm jacks that are not recognized by "Steam games". This USB interface connector works fine and is recognized by Steam. Just connect to headset and plug it in to the USB jack on the PC and go. I own 2 of these, and both work well.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I use with this head set:
RAZER Tiamat 2.2 NE # N82E16826153088.
Windows 7.

5 out of 5 eggsMake sure you have a backup. Was great when it worked. Ordering 2 More

Pros: Lasted for several month of continuous use. Great sound with plenty of Juice for powerful DJ headphones. I like these because they are flexible. Used when DJ'n at clubs. Ordering two more.

Cons: I'm at a live performance with no ability to preview my songs as the dongle will no longer make a connection to my headphones plug. The plug port has quit making contact with the headphones insert.

Other Thoughts: Order 2 of them for backup if needed :)
