Remarkably cheap for what it does. For some reason my on-board audio ceased to work on my general purpose machine (I have another machine which is dedicated to audio but it's useful to be able to play stuff on the machine connected to the net) and I bought this device as a quick fix.

Delivery (to Spain) was good and it turned up within a week, The unit is solidly built for the money, but I have to agree with most of the other reviewers, the 'support' is appalling. No instructions of any sort and the CD gives no indication of which (of several) drivers to install. That's why I give it 3 stars, otherwise it deserves at least a 4, if only on a price vs spec basis.

For anyone still struggling, the drivers you want are in the directory CM6206(XP,VISTA,WIN7), go there and then select your OS (I'm running XP) and then double click on 'install.exe' - and all should be good. You do need to reboot the computer after installation.

FWIW, when I plugged the unit in, Windows rushed off and automatically installed a set of Windows generic drivers - and they did work. However, although I didn't explore it further, I suspect they won't allow access to all the features.

I bought this so that I could play films on my Windows 7 64 bit laptop and have 5.1 sound from my amp/speakers. I haven't quite got there yet. I installed the 2606 Windows 7 driver from the CD and the device set up OK. After a bit of fiddling, I have got Windows to play the dolby digital test file through all 5 speakers. However, I haven't yet managed to get any other software to work in digital surround mode. This can't really be blamed on the product as it clearly can work as demonstrated by the Windows test. Some instructions might have helped though.

Hard to configure but works as expected. Don't lose the drivers cause you not gonna find it on-line.

As others have noted this device arrives without any instructions. I didn't have quite the driver woes some have experienced. I'm mostly using Debian GNU/Linux, occasionally Windows XP. The driver is already in the Linux kernel. I connected the soundcard. It was recognised but produced no sound. A few minutes consulting the almighty Google led me to the ALSA wiki[...] where I found that it's necessary to ensure this device's driver loads before other audio devices' drivers, so as to make this one the default. It's as simple as adding a line to a text file. My desktop PC already has an Intel HD Audio card whose driver is snd-hda-intel. This new device's driver is snd-usb-audio. So as root I added the line:

options snd slots=snd-usb-audio,snd-hda-intel

to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

On booting this forces the usb audio device to load first and be the default audio device, followed by the Intel. My integrated Intel audio device is still available and working if I want to use it.

That's the theory, but does it work? I rebooted and everything works as expected.

I also booted Windows XP with the device attached and the driver CD in the CD drive. Windows initially used its own pre-installed generic driver. I then ran the Windows Device Manager and updated the driver by prompting it to search removable devices and it found and installed the appropriate driver from the supplied CD automatically. Everything worked. I then ran the installer .exe that had been placed into Program Files\USB Multi-Channel Audio Device. This installs the sound chip manufacturer's graphical user interface. It's very horrible and if you play with the silly effects they can be impossible to disable without a reboot. Yuk.

Did everything I needed, it allowed me to hook up an amp and speaker set-up to my laptop for a party I was asked to do at the last minute for a friend, this cheaply, and easily, solved the problem of not enough ports and drivers!!!!

Hi, first review on amazon after being a member a long time (Lazy!).

Bought this device as I invested in an Onkyo AV reciever and wanted to connect the PC up to the device with tru surround sound. As the AV reciever I bought is geared toward digital connection (HDMI, Optical etc) The older 5.1 card with analogue outs on my machine wasnt going to do the job.

I took a gamble on this unit as it was cheap and cheerful and I am very pleased.

I am using Windows 7 64bit, I plugged in the device while connected to the net and the drivers were puled doen automaticaly (the chiposet used in the box appears to be c-media). Conencted an optical (spdif) cable to the optical out on the box and into the amp then set up using all the standard windows tools. This is a good job as the supplied CD is basically useless. I havent marked down for this as it has not interefered with my use at all and the hardware is working flawlessly. I will be interested to see if I can have a play around with the other analogue outputs to use for DJ'ing but I cannot confirm this will work and the device probably isnt good enough quality to be honest.

In summary - Very cheap, plug and play on my WIN7 64 Bit (ultimate) OS. deliveres 5.1 over optical with no config needed to my av reciever via a simple USB connection from the PC. Solved a problem I made for myself.
