    USB Sound Card Option

    Just wondering, to connect my computer to my amp i need a usb sound card because i am using my laptop. From what i understand all this usb sound car needs is 5.1ch so two channel for front speaker left and right, two for back left and right and one for the middle, or the sub. is this correct?

    and can someone tell me if this sound card will do the job?

    5.1 channels are actually 6 total channels of sound... so yes you have front left and right as well as rear left and right... you also have front center AND sub

    however.. just cos the USB soundcard supports 5.1 channels.. does not mean you have to use all 5.1channels.. most of us just use 2.1 or 4.1 channels

    Yes.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    it should work yes... but keep in mind that i cannot comment on its sound quality or on how well the drivers work for this thing...

    but at $30.. i think its worth finding out...
