Great for simple setups 04/19/2013
This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter
No drivers needed for XP or Win7.
Works almost instantly.
Distortion when USB bus has a bunch of other devices being shared with device.
Lack of drivers also means manufacturer is unable to resolve compatibility issues, like above.
Volume buttons are pretty much useless.
Ran back and forth with support on resolving my issue, which turned out to be related to my system having too many USB devices.
They were helpful but did not take responsibility in the fact that it is a hardware/design issue on their part, not my system.
When I first plugged it in, it was working. As soon as I added more USB devices to my system, it caused audio to start distort. After a bunch of troubleshooting I found that if I had more than a few devices plugged into my USB bus, this problem would occur.
It wasn't a conflict with a specific one either, which I initially thought.
I also found through USBView tool that the device only runs at USB1.1 speeds even when plugged into a USB2.0 high speed capable port.
