Turtle Beach/Voyetra newegg Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Amigo II USB Interface Sound Card & Headset Adapter
  (23)
  •  USB Interface
  • 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.

Sound Cards

All computers that can play audio already have sound cards. However, not all PCs come equipped with sound cards that can produce the type of audio you want. If you use a computer as a home theater, music player, or gaming system, it is ideal to have the capability for 5.1 surround sound. 5.1 means there are five speakers and one subwoofer.

Sound cards send different audio signals to each of the five speakers, so the speakers all play a different portion of the overall sound. Rather than simply hearing the audio from a computer, a listener becomes immersed in whatever is playing. This intensifies the video gaming experience and enhances your enjoyment of music and movies.

Sound Card Features to Look for

If you plan on using a computer to record or play music, consider purchasing a sound card with MIDI. MIDI is a standard for connecting electronic musical instruments. Having MIDI is especially helpful to musicians who like to write and record their own songs. With the right software programs and a sound card with MIDI, it is possible for one musician to play five different instruments (one at a time) and then overlap the recordings together to make one song on the computer.

Other important sound card specifications include whether or not the card has a microphone plug, and the operating systems that can read the card. It is especially important to check this latter detail if you are using an older operating system. Some of the newer sound cards only work with newer operating systems. Here at Newegg, we have dozens of sound cards that can transform your computer into a state-of-the-art stereo system. Our electronics are sold at discounted prices, so you will find quality products at great values on our website.
