    Cheap USB sound card

    hey guys

    Tried searching for a review, but couldn't find anything.

    I have a Toshiba tecra 8100 laptop, and the sound quality is really nothing flash. looking for a cheap and easy way to improve sound quality. Has anyone had any experience with these?http://cgi.ebay.com.au/USB-sound-car...QQcmdZViewItem

    How would it compare to a more expensive external sound card? any advice as to whether it is likely to be ok would be great.

    thanks

    pete

    I just got one of these and it seems to be working pretty well http://search.ebay.com/search/search...trypage=search

    YMMV.

    after researching further

    AFter further research and looking at what you guys have, i have dhanged my mind a little on what i need.

    How do people without a volume knob on the sound card control volume? just through the front end? (im talking no HU). A few of the usb sound cards ive seen such as the one by philips, have a volume control knob - and look like they could be mounted just below an in dash lilliput or so. Is it a huge hassle having to change the volume on a touch screen?

    We don't have a huge range here in Australia, and the shipping from the states is pretty expensive - like the philips Aurilium is only $US23, but shipping is $US40.

    last question, does anyone have measurements of the philips Aurilium?

    thanks

    peter
