    Great review: I was wondering whether the V2s can be used as a sound card via its USB for laptops/computers? On eBay there are two sellers (Penon Audio being one of them) who clearly state under their product description that the V2s can be used as such... Thanks and best regards, Taishaku

    Thanks! Unless they updated the V2S, I don't think so. The USB on my sample is only there to charge the unit.

    Thats what I thought too, it confused me a bit, maybe I am missing something or as you say maybe an upgrade/update - below is what the sellers say about this feature (on eBay)... 1 DOUK. "Can be used as computer sound card with USB connection" source: [URL]https://www.ebay.com/itm/262955316838[/URL] 2 PENON. "can be an OTG sound card of computer or mobile phone" source: [URL]https://www.ebay.com/itm/272684704864[/URL]

    They must have updated it I guess. Not sure, sorry.

    FYI: Penon Audio got back to me and said; "Sorry for any misunderstanding. It means this Walnut V2s supports Headphone AMP function. That is to say,it can be used as music player and headphone AMP." So their V2s product description was incorrect. Thanks for your replies.

    Hi just to update you FYI I got my V2s and after about a week I discovered (by accident) it indeed does function as a USB sound card for my laptop, showing up as a Generic USB Device under a name "JieLi BR17" I thought it wouldn't work this way and by accident (when connecting the USB cable to my laptop to charge the battery) a driver was installed automatically and that made it work.

    Not sure why previous times when I charged it no driver was installed. Anyways, its great streaming/playing music thru' Equalizer APO/Foobar 1.4 via the USB cable and charging the V2s at the same time. Sound is very good except it 'crackles and pops' from time to time. I won't use it this way a lot however its a very, very useful function to have. Rgds T
