Good sound for headphones, but not for speakers

I use a laptop for mostly home computing, and I watch a lot of TV and movies on my laptop with a nice set of Klipsch speakers, Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System (Black). When my laptop sound card stopped functioning, I didn't want to pay a lot of money to install a new internal card, so I got this little USB thing.

The sound quality is very good, and the diagnostic program that comes with it helps you create exactly the sound you want, which is nice since on the default setting there was a very noticeable echo. With a little bit of tweaking, I got that cleared up. When I use my headphones, the sound is actually better than when I used them with my old sound card.

My problem is with using my speakers. They are powerful speakers, and maybe that's the issue, but as soon as I turn the volume up past 1/4 of the dial, there is a noticeable buzzing in the speakers, and it only gets louder and more intrusive the higher the volume goes.

Given the other options, though, I would still buy this product again. It is a great package, has some great features, and is a great deal for the price.

Great review Mark... I had no idea there was such a thing as an external sound card. I'll have to keep it in mind for my HP Pavillion laptop. Even my husband was surprised about it, and he knows a thing or two about computers!
