    The sound created by the Startech 7.1 USB Audio External Sound Card is okay, though it has a bit of a hollow sound. It doesn’t provide any software to control sound quality.

    I almost returned it because the sound suddenly went to trash after a few minutes of use – constant static and garbled sound. However, I decided to check out the company’s website to see if there might be an updated driver for my Vista system. There was, and after installation the sound is as described above.

    The product is acceptable, but nothing more than that. If you want the ability to control bass or treble, try different effects – or anything that requires software, forget it. The fact that the most current driver isn’t included is not good, and that they don’t even tell you that you should upgrade it or where to go to get the upgrade is inadequate.

    This review is from: StarTech.com 7.1 USB Audio Adapter External Sound Card with SPDIF Digital Audio (Personal Computers)

    Having purchased an internal sound card recently from somewhere else, I was a little concerned that this would work properly. I wanted to connect my Desktop PC to a 7.1 HT System using the TOSLINK and the sound card only supported 2 channels via this connector.

    However, this USB Sound Card works a dream.

    I initially plugged it into a Windows 7 based Laptop and it installed everything first time. A reboot was required and I was quickly able to play some music & films using the full 7.1 surround sound.

    The next task was to check out this sound card with my desktop PC which has Windows XP. This initially installed the Windows drivers for a USB Sound Card which didn’t support 7.1 channels on the TOSLINK. Once I realised that this was the issue I ran the installation program on the supplied CD ROM and the correct drivers are now installed and it works just fine. Page 4 of the manual identifies the chipset used (C-Media CM6206) in case you have a problem finding the driver.

    Again I can play music & films and all the channels are used.

    I have briefly tested the other output sockets (headphone & surround outputs) and these all appear to be working. I have yet to use the two microphone sockets to see how good they are at capturing stereo sound.

    The LED on the device is useful. It flashes slowly when sound is being received, which is a good indicator if you are having configuration problems. The volume & mute controls work too.

    As for the quality, I’ve had no problem with this on the TOSLINK output. I no longer have a surround sound that would use the 3.5mm sockets, but may use it if at a friend’s home, so I can’t comment on their performance at this stage.

    Overall I am very happy with this product. It has done just what I wanted and works well. It definitely works with both Windows XP & 7.

    Beware Toslink claim, 23 Sep 2010

    This review is from: StarTech.com 7.1 USB Audio Adapter External Sound Card with SPDIF Digital Audio (Personal Computers)

    The card works well in most of the claimed ways, though the analogue microphone input is rather noisy. However, if, like me, you are attracted by the ‘Toslink input and output’ you should know that the ‘input’ is not a true input to the system but merely a loop-through to the Toslink output. You cannot offer an input to the computer via this connection.
    I suggested to the supplier that they should modify their widely quoted information to make it clear that this is not a true input, but so far I have seen no evidence of this happening.
