Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB USB Audio Interface

Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB USB Audio Interface

“The Scarlett 2i4 is fantastic. It's an easy to setup device out of the box but i would love to see more updates from Focusrite. On Z87 motherboards the device does fail after about a day or so when the computer is turned on. The knobs and plugs on the device are very robust and very comfortable to use. ” --thermal666

Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 8 In / 6 Out FireWire Audio Interface with 2 Focusrite Mic Preamps

Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 8 In / 6 Out FireWire Audio Interface with 2 Focusrite Mic Preamps

“ Where to start? This is primarily for project studio and field recording work. It can be powered soley by its Firewire jack, which is nice. It has real Saffire preamps for microphones, which are very nice. It has a very high quality, high speed DAC, which is excellent. Finally, it drives headphones so well it kicks the hell out of many solid state dedicated headphone amplifiers in this...” --mattphones

Creative Labs SB1100 USB 2.0 Sound Blaster X-Fi Go Audio System

Creative Labs SB1100 USB 2.0 Sound Blaster X-Fi Go Audio System

“ I bought this for a "try-it-and-see" provisional and was pleasantly surprised. The music came alive. The highs were more crisp, the lows more dramatic and deep. The staging was improved. The music took on a surround sound, three dimensional quality. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to improve the quality of their on-board sound cards. Try for $25-30 you can't go wrong. ” --peterabb

USB Soundwave 7.1 Rohs

USB Soundwave 7.1 Rohs

“ Alright well I just recently purchased it, installed from CD fine on Windows 8 64bit, not so much on Windows 7 64 bit had to find a strange hidden zip file to get it to work.   This thing is ridiculously loud, could be good for some high impedance headphones.  Turn it down all the way before you plug in your headphones.  I can hear pretty loud sounds when the system volume...” --TsukiNick

HT OMEGA Stryker 7.1

HT OMEGA Stryker 7.1

“ When I built my computer about a year ago I really only got it so I wouldn't have to use onboard audio, which is never very good. I figured that for the price it wouldn't be too bad, but I was curious as to why the technical specs were nowhere to be found; now I know...This card is only capable of 16 bit 48 kHz playback; but HT Omega hides this fact, I searched for a while with no success......” --skinnygamer12

Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS2 Dolby Surround Sound Processor

Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS2 Dolby Surround Sound Processor

“Disclaimer: Many of the problems I note with the DSS2 can also be attributed to the lossy compression of Dolby Digital. However, since the DSS2 is intended to be used as a surround sound processor, I feel it would be disingenuous to review it as a simple headphone amplifier. I believe that most people looking to buy the DSS2 are looking at it to provide Dolby Headphone, and therefore will...” --echoback

Creative Labs SB1040 PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Sound Card

Creative Labs SB1040 PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Sound Card

“What they did with this card was get a lower quality, and poorly supported chip and stick the X-Fi label on it. It's not a good card. Drivers are dodgy and completely non existent for Linux. The sound is OK, but not noticeably better than what you would get from an Audigy SE or something. It certainly isn't 'X-Fi' standard. The only 'advantage' I can think of is that it is PCI-E. Not that it...” --theeyealtering
