Customer Review

on 24 March 2013
This was easy to set up with the Raspberry Pi. I bought this because the headphone jack on the RPI was crackling/popping and in general seemed to have a lot of static background noise.

I plugged it in, and it was detected when I had a look at "dmesg". To set it up, I edited /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and commented out the line that said "options snd-usb-audio index=-2". After a reboot, the USB became the default sound hardware. Running "speaker-test" didn't inspire any confidence as it did nothing, but using a music player like "mpd" or "mpg321" worked perfectly.

One thing to note - the volume was extremely loud for me. I had to open "alsamixer" and lower the volume all the way to 2.

My current setup is that I am running from the RPI, it's connected to a speaker and plays music all day long via mpd.
