4 out of 5 eggsA Good product

Pros: A good product, if you want to replace your 3.5 inch jack. If they are broken.

Cons: If you want to listen to your speakers. You're forced to disconnect the Stereo adapter.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Douglas,

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on our ICUSBAUDIO2D. We apologize for the issue you experienced, and we would like to help resolve it.
We see here you have spoken to one of our Technical Advisors and we were unable to get this to work on your one machine.
We can recommend a few things to narrow down the source of the problem.
One will be to plug this device into a different USB port on that same machine, to see if you can get this to work. Second would be to plug this into a different machine and install the latest drivers from our website. Please make sure that you open your Sound Devices and select this USB Audio Device as the default output device in order to ensure audio will be output properly.
We are always here to help with our free lifetime technical support. If this did not help with the problems you are having please get in touch with us and be sure to reference case # 367-179311 so we can assist you further.

You can also reply here and we will be sure to follow up with you.

Thank You,

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality Product

Pros: Quality sound,useful volume control knob for headphone output,16/24 bit 44.1,48 and 96khz sampling rate for great sound recording and playback(HD Audio), compact unit housing.

Cons: Doesn't have a line-in.

Other Thoughts: I make music using software like Propellerhead Reason and Cakewalk Sonar X2 so latency is most important. At 96khz/24 bit on an inexpensive laptop, you usually run into serious latency issues.But none on this product.There is an excellent headphone amp built-in with enough milliwatts to power my 30mm headphone drivers well.The optical S/PDIF output works with no cracking.(the optical out has latency, but that's the nature of that type of digital out, and I would never use that to compose songs with, only use that to listen with) The microphone in works fine with a cheap consumer microphone. I personally have no use for the bass and treble boost switch but they also sound good at medium volume. The sampling rate indicators work as advertised and switches the moment a program outputs at one of the selected sample rates.I bought this unit because my headphone jack on my laptop is broken.This sounds way better that the onboard soundcard. I only wish it had a line-in.
