Excellent product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought thumb sized USB sound card out of curiosity. I wondered what $25 would buy. It works much better than I had expected. Plugged it into a spare USB port and XP immediately announced that it had found a new USB sound card. Moved digital interface cables over from internal sound card to this little thumb sized device. All my digital programs (MultiPSK, Digipan, MMTTY, MMSSTV, etc.) allowed me to select the USB device while leaving the windows sounds on my regular computer speakers. Discovered USB sound card had a much lower noise level and much less distortion than my built in computer sound card. Much Less!

It makes life simpler now with the radio interface on the USB sound card and other audio on the internal sound card.
