  • What's Included
  • The USB 5.1 Channel Audio Adapter can transform your standard desktop or laptop audio into a quality surround sound system without the need to purchase or install a new sound card. Simple plug-and-play technology allows you to insert the Adapter into any free USB 1.1 port and the drivers will load automatically. The compact USB 5.1 Channel Audio Adapter is a multi functional device that supports rear audio, center / sub woofer, front audio, microphone in, line in, LED Power indicator, and easy to use plus and minus volume controls. Use a 1/8" mini-jack plug to connect your powered speakers into the appropriate speaker input and your adapter is ready to provide an instant boost in clarity and performance that music, movies and video games are intended to deliver. By using the 1/8" mini-jack microphone and line in, you can also connect additional audio equipment such as a microphone, home stereo, musical instrument, or portable music player. A CD is included with a program for advanced surround sound and recording functions. No external power supply is required.

    Important Note: On a Mac operating system, the volume buttons of the adapter are not functional and there is 2-channel playback only.

    Hands-On Research:
    When tested on a desktop PC, the USB 5.1 Audio Adapter was immediately recognized as a new device and the device drivers automatically loaded. The speakers were disconnected from the back of the PC and then plugged into the Adapter. After sampling both a song and a video from Windows Media Player, the sound was of a significantly higher quality than previously experienced. The Sound System software was also loaded and had same look, feel, and ease of use as the standard Windows Volume Control.

    The USB 5.1 Channel Audio Adapter is a fantastic way to upgrade your existing desktop audio system or bring your laptop sound to life. Instantly improved sound quality, ease of use, compact design, and a multitude of inputs and outputs make this product a winner.

    Ease of use
    Having the ability to hear media such as music, video, and games in a surround sound environment from your computer usually requires the purchase of an expensive sound card and the technical knowledge to install it. The USB 5.1 Channel Audio Adapter only requires you to plug it into a free USB 1.1 port on your desktop or laptop, let the drivers install automatically on your Windows or Mac operating system, and connect any 1/8" mini-jack powered speakers and/or subwoofer into the corresponding input. You can control basic volume on the adapter with a press of your finger on the + or - buttons. For advanced controls, a CD is provided with a simple download of the Sound Station software, which gives you a more complete control of your audio settings.

    Compact Design
    With the base less than 3 inches around and less than one inch tall, this adapter can fit almost anywhere. The USB cord is over two feet long giving you room to move your adapter to a convenient area near your computer.

    Notice: Under the Mac system, the volume buttons of the adapter are not functional and there is 2-channel playback only

    Connected my surround desktop speakers to my laptop. Awesome sound. Wish the laptop had surround capability though. It only has stereo capabilities. Great Product!
