ASUS tackles lackluster sound quality in note- and netbooks with the Xonar U3, a small USB audio card with a built-in headphone amplifier. There's convenience in the form of a portable optical output tucked into this small shell, but we put the U3 to the test to see how it compares to typical onboard audio solutions.

Interesting.

One problem I've had with laptops in the past is lack of driver functionality, stuff like trying to play music over Ventrilo. I guess a USB audio card would fix that problem if I ever run into it again.

Hi, can this be used to pass through DTS/DD (via optical out) content to an external receiver (for decoding)? Thanks!

It can output up to 7.1 surround sound via the optical out.

Can you plug in desktop surround sound speakers that has it's own power source, directly into this USB sound card?
