As we all know, digital audio has become the de facto standard on most of our audio devices. Unfortunately, there are still select motherboards out there which don’t offer a digital output, so we’re stuck using an analog connection and laptops that only offer an analog audio jack. Diamond Media has a solution. Their USB Xtreme Sound 24bit 7.1 Channel Digital Audio Adapter looks to make digital audio available for everyone. It’s a pocket size device that is capable of receiving an audio signal through 3.5mm stereo jacks or any USB 2.0 or optical input with multiple output ports. It can then convert the audio into a digital signal.

We are going to put it through its paces and see if it lives up to its promises.
