Sound
I use this thing to play music from a laptop, to a PA system. The laptops' headphone jack was noisy, and I wanted better quality sound. There is no detectable backgoround noise with this unit, into a Mackie mixer, using an iso transformer. It is a little noisy w/o the iso xformer, but thats probably power supply noise or other interaction between to laptop and mixer.
Features
A very basic unit. Plugs into USB, Win XP recognizes it without any additional changes. It does what I want it to do.
Quality
Plastic, but nicely finished with good strain relief on the cable.
Value
I havent seen anything comparable (that actually works) for this price.
Manufacturer Support

The Wow Factor
