    Question Anyone know where to get a good quality USB sound card?

    I got that usb to audio adapter,(www.mcmelectronics.com) and its a Dallas Semiconductor chipset. its HORRIBLE. LOT of line noise from networking and harddrive access and certain colors on the screen will make noise too. Its worse than the speaker-out port on a soundblaster.

    I'd like to get a nice crisp, clear line-out like how some of you all are describing. holy moly the noise level was horrible.

    Does anyone have any idea?

    When i get around to putting my system togeather, i will be using an old laptop, whose sound sucks, while looking around i found this: http://www.computeraudio.telex.com/products/p500.html
    which you can get from egghead for like $51
    i have no experience with it though, and if you get it, post a reply about the quality

    I have seent that product before, and I wasn't sure if that was only to hook up a microphone to the usb port.

    I have also found other USB devices on the net, and I'm currently looking at: http://www.usbgear.net/view-cat.cfm?id=121
    Its SNR is about 90, so I'm hoping that is good enough for hooking into a headunit with teh static undiscernable from usb noise, or headunit noise, or amp noise.

    wish me luck,

    ya i saw that none also, but i trust telex more as a sound company, and they have the drivers right on their site for it, saying it supports win2k, whereas that one doesnt say anything about that, of corse i may be running win98 anyways, since i forgot my pcmcia tv tuner doesnt ahve win2k drivers

    Check out the stereo-link review at MP3.com.
    At $200 it's expensive, but it's gotten excellent reviews. Reading the info on thier site, I think it's more of an audiphile product than a computer product. Anyone have any experience with this product?

    Hey,
    I actually have one if you want to buy it off of me, I bought like 35 of them when the i-openers were hot and got stuck with a couple extra ones, I'll sell it to you for $35 if your interested
    The URL for the model I have is
    USB Sound Adaptor
    I think I have one or two more if other people are interested, I use mine everyday, or at least until I get my new SBC setup completed

    Topperage: I might be interested too, but I'm not sure if it'll make much difference. Im also using a laptop, but the sound quality sounds good to me (and my passengers)
