“ I wanted to upgrade my computer sound card in preparation for higher impedance phones and eventually a desktop amp. This more than does the trick and improved onboard sound more than I'd expected.   The con about it needing a good power source isn't an argument against it. It turned out that my computer (Vostro 420, 2009) didn't have an extra power connection for the card so I ended...” --rroseperry

Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System

Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System

“ Ill keep this short and sweet. I've had mine for four years and it has done every duty in the book that a set of speakers can do. Its been moved back and forth from dorm to dorm, apartment to apartment - all the while ensuring Im kicked out as soon as I arrive. These things rock!   The small speakers do tend to be outclassed by the bass driver. They get loud, but the dont project...” --mattphones

AudioQuest DragonFly Asynchronous USB DAC

AudioQuest DragonFly Asynchronous USB DAC

“The DragonFly v1.2 sounds clearly superior to my laptop's built-in Realtek HD chip. There is no driver installation needed and I had no problems to use it on Windows, Linux, and MacOS X. The analog volume control works with the OS' volume control. With Debian Linux I experienced once that changing from the built-in sound to the DragonFly put the later on max. volume, which is ear-damaging...” --maeschba

Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System

“Purchased these this week, and had them replaced with another set - which exhibited the same flaw. Two may be a curse, but they both did the same thing so I would be wary.    When on standby, the speakers issued a very low sounding 'ticking' sound (every 3 seconds or so), and the subwoofer exhibited a medium-frequency humming noise. (no, not interference - tried with computer off...” --Fademan77

FiiO RM1 Bluetooth Remote Controller

FiiO RM1 Bluetooth Remote Controller

“For larger (1200 x 800) images, click any pictureINTRODUCTION The RM1 is a very small and quite versatile Blue-tooth controller unit. This one came out of the “blue” a little – although I can see the reason for FiiO developing it as a natural accompaniment to the X7 with its wireless capability. So let's skip the usual preamble and get down to the specifics – how well does it work, and is it...” --Brooko

JBL SoundSticks II 2.1 Plug and Play Multimedia Speaker System

“ I just got these and am impressed with the detail and clarity of these speakers.  I only wanted something simple, small, and cheap.  I was looking at the swans but don't have the opportunity to listen to them here in hawaii.  We are pretty limited to whats available here and on Oahu is where they'd most likely have more options for me to listen to.  But back to the review.  I am currently...” --Hawaiiancerveza

“I've learned a lot about this card over the course of using it for a while, so I figured I would write a review about it. Ok, some strange install issues off the bat - on windows 7 sp1, the initial install was finicky. The first time the driver setup was run, it wouldn't detect the card, but upon a restart, it could. I don't know if this was a microsoft issue or an asus one or possibly an issue...” --mindbomb

Wyrd USB Decrapifier

Wyrd USB Decrapifier

“Let me preface this review by explaining the issue I was dealing with.   I have always experienced digital noise from, I'm assuming, my poorly grounded laptop. It didn't matter if I used the headphone jacks or my Alessis i02 Express for recording/DAC (poor man's recording/DAC that I totally recommend if you're in a pinch). The noise I'm talking about is not static but rather a dynamic...” --tyco
