External audio solution

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

For some reason the audio ports on my motherboard have never worked properly so I've been using a cheap USB adapter for the past year but it recently died and I'm looking for a solid replacement because I just realized how bad the audio quality has been so far. So right now I want to invest on a 2.1 set of speakers, but I also want to be able to use my headphones and my microphone. So ideally what I would need is some kind of USB adapter that has at least two audio jack inputs and one microphone input, while delivering an optimal sound quality.

 

Where can I find such a device, and what other solutions do I have?

 

Thanks.

Yes pretty much. I'm using a Corsair HS50 with the included microphone. So it has a jack that does both input and output but it came bundled with a splitter. I'm also buying speakers from Logitech (not sure about the model yet) that would require a single output jack. I'm considering buying a sound card like this one but I'm not sure if it's worth it, considering that it would cost almost the same price as my speakers.

if it does what you need cleanly should be worth it your noot exact;y going to be using gear where it matters too much.

 Hi If U Want To Get Pretty Hooked Up I Would Still Use The Headphones But Upgrade Ur Microphone I have The Bheringer Euphoria UM2 Has RCA Out And Headphone 8 inch out.

What I Would Do Use the Headphones On The Out Get A Cheap Xlr Mic And Stand And Plug The Logitech Speakers With An Rca To Aux Cable.
