“Don't settle for weak audio performance from your laptop or desktop. Turtle Beach's Audio Advantage Micro is a portable USB audio adapter (or USB sound card) that enhances your digital music connection in seconds. Simply plug the Micro into an available USB port on your PC and connect headphones or powered speakers and you're ready to rock! There's even a built-in headphone amplifier to give your bass a boost and help hitting those highs.
The compact adapter has both analog and digital (S/PDIF) outputs (with an included Digital Audio adapter) and an integrated surround-sound simulator for creating immersive audio with standard headphones or stereo speakers. A 10-band equalizer lets you tailor your sound to suit your music tastes and preferences and ambience effects give you the experience of listening to your audio in different environments.”
I’m looking for a direct digital to digital connection. Is there such a thing? Is the USB output from a computer digital?
Click on the pictures of that on Newegg, you will see the little adapter it comes with. It is a toslink adapter , look like a little dongle with a headphone sized jack on one end and a spot to hook in an optical cable on the other. You will need an optical cable like this one
but that only runs a couple bucks from monoprice. I have used that Turtle beach usb adapter on my laptop to hook to my AVR, works well.
