    Pros - good price, flat and neutral sound, Simple,Dual-purpose front-panel mic/instrument inputs
    Cons - rough design
    Hi all,

    i used to record my electric guitar riffs with this device. now i regularly use it as a desktop amp.
    build quality is excellent, you can't crack or break it easily if u try!

    i love to listen to music the best it can be heard with my budget.
    i listen on either  Beyerdynamic dt770 pro 80 ohm or se215 IEMs. despite the great recording job, i can enjoy it's flat, neutral and powerful sound on playing music.
    it can drive my DT 770 pro 80ohms nearly to 100dB, so if you are about to listen to loud music, i do not recommend this for higher impedance headphones.

    not the most good looking soundcard in the market, but it's ok!

    so far so good with foobar2000 and ASIO drivers or WASAPI output support components.
