UPDATE: I asked Amazon for a replacement. It came in two days, no extra charge. Thank you Amazon! I installed the two sound cards (main and front satellite). Closed computer case and plugged in all cables including the audio cable (Digital - S/PDIF Out for my computer), except the power. I turned on my receiver and speakers, set them to Digital In, then plugged in the computer power. Windows 10 found the card on start-up and installed the appropriate drivers (listed with no conflicts in Windows Device Manager). I did not install the proprietary drivers and software from the included disk or website. (This card is not found on the driver website as listed in the instructions!). My PC has it's own third party audio control software and I didn't want the card's proprietary software to conflict with the existing software. My audio software recognized the S/PDIF Out and I set it as the default. I haven't tried the analog mini-plugs yet for the 7.1. I bought the card for the Digital Out to my 7.1 receiver. So far so good, with strong, clear surround sound.
* Works out of the box, easy to set up.
* Small size
* requires an adapter to plug a TOSLINK cable into the 3.5mm headphone port
* requires a web search to even know that the TOSLINK output is the same hole as the headphone output.
* Aforementioned adapter is not included with this product (fortunately one of my TOSLINK cables came with adapters)
* Does not support 88.2k sample rate
* USB audio interface runs in adaptive mode, which results in a less steady clock than if it ran in asynchronous mode
Overall, it's a great price for what you get -- it's what you should get if you just want to try something out to see if it works. But for me, the lack of support for 88.2k, combined with the lack of asynchronous transfer, means I will probably be buying the Matrix USB-SPDIF (http://smile.amazon.com/Matrix-USB-Coxical-bit-tas1020b/dp/B00A2QJZG2/)
Bought for gaming and multimedia use.
Excellent value for the money.
Hardware is solid
Have not had any compatibility issues so far
Driver installation process was fussy, Win 7 setup was smooth, but Win 10 install required some troubleshooting to get working,
Software works but is goofy, weird transparency for no apparent reason, some text hard to read, ridiculous number of identical logos on info page.
Long cable to daughter card is good or bad depending on how your slots are arranged.
+Adds an external mic input to a Sony laptop that doesn't have one (how silly is that?).
+mute volume/mic buttons
+input is plenty clean for 3 bucks (Though I have no way of testing the signal/noise)
-Output is horribly bass-handicapped (as though filtered out) and treble-maxed, compared to stock output, but otherwise clean
-mute button catches a little due to design (see photos)
*could really benefit from having a USB extension bundled with it to keep pressure off the USB port
*an ungrounded power supply will cause recording clicks, but this is not the problem of the dongle
*"Virtual 7.1 Channel Sound" is totally meaningless
Bottom line is that it's only 3 bucks, so it should have no less than 4 stars for doing the basic job it's intended to do.
