    It mostly depends on the hardware. Cheap USB devices won't have the hardware they need to produce high quality sound, but this is the same with PCI. Possibly the biggest difference is that it's able to be located outside the computer case, which potentially takes it away from electrical interference from the computer that could be affecting the sound. Though only audiophiles might notice a difference in the sound from this. The higher priced USB sound devices, just as the higher priced PCI sound cards, will be able to produce better sound quality. There is no inherent sound quality loss or gain simply by using USB, other than a few ms of latency that you won't even notice.

    I think for use with BitOne is best USB-SPDIF "adapter" Why?
    It doesn't need drivers(Problem with Hibernate/sleep solved).

    But Im not shure if I will continue use it...

    becaue console only supports one asio device for both input and output, you are going to end up either using asio4all, or will be looping the audio through the soundcard(looping it through multiple devices is the least efficient method)...

    i would have to say that any of those cards are going to work.

    Ok if Im understand you. Console support only one device this mean If I disable onboard sound card and use another for example Claro Halo XT I can use original ASIO drivers because I will use one device?

    After talking with tech support Im 80% to take HT Omega Claro Halo XT sound card... It have swapable OPAMPS, 8xRCA outputs, optical IN and OUT, Headphone out, Line-in, mic, coaxial in&out, AUX-in, CD-in...

    Just take the time to understand ASIO before you rush in like I did. I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago

    See: http://www.cakewalk.com/products/UAUM/UA1G.asp

    Despite lots of warnings in the manual about problems with the device not being found and possible problems of swapping it from one USB port to the other, it worked perfectly.

    Problem for me is that ASIO does not give you a master volume control so I could not get good functionality out of roadRunner and the Satnav volume punched me through the roof when the sound went from 4% to 100% volume unexpectedly...

    RR (and probably CF) needs hte master volume control for full functionality.

    There is a recent thread about my experiences, search for my posts.

    As I know with ASIO you can control Master Volume but you can't control Wave volume...

    The above card has no Master volume control in the windows mixer. RR moves WAVE and Master together. Here was my post
