Add a 3.5mm audio connection with SPDIF digital output and an external microphone to your system through USB
The ICUSBAUDIOMH External USB Card lets you add an S/PDIF digital audio output or a standard 3.5mm analog audio connection to your system through USB. By converting a single USB port into an external sound card with microphone connectivity, you can conveniently bypass or replace an internal sound card without having to open your computer case.
The USB DAC (digital-to-analog converter) provides a built-in microphone, allowing you to add audio recording capability to your system without the need for additional hardware. This integrated microphone can also be placed further away from your computer's speakers, reducing or eliminating feedback that is often problematic with laptops that utilize an on-board microphone.
For home-theater quality sound, the external sound card offers 96KHz / 24-bit sampling rates for both playback and recording, and a 3.5mm S/PDIF port with support for Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound (AC3) and DTS pass-through (Note: 5.1 surround sound is supported in Windows only). By implementing 3.5mm stereo microphone connection the USB audio adapter equips you with the ability to attach an external stereo microphone as needed.
For added versatility this USB-powered sound adapter features a 15in attached USB cable, volume control, mute, and microphone mute buttons for quick adjustments, a 3.5mm stereo microphone input, and a convenient LED status bar to display the current sampling rate.
