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.
