Just wanted to let every one know that Office Depot has the Sound Blaster mp3+
on clearance. They are asking $29 or so. This is an external USB sound card.
It's supported by alsa.
A couple of years ago, I decided I'd like to put all my CD's on a linux file
system. I could then build my own iriver or archos system. After doing some
of the preliminary work, I discovered that the noise level of my built-in sound
card was too high for comfortable listening. Also, recording was worse than
A good friend Ken Lee (HEY Ken) told me that he was using a usb sound card.
This got me to thinking.
In my mind, this would remove the sound processing away from all that nasty RF.
So, we'll see.
I got my mp3+ last night; so, haven't had much time to mess with it. I've
just played some test files. So far, so good.
This unit also has optical audio in and out. So, when I hook it up to my adcom
pre-amp, it will be digital all the way. I have high hopes that recording will
be much better. (We'll see).
