Using external sound cards is a common practice for those who desire higher quality audio from their notebook or even desktop when there are space or technical restrictions in place limiting their options available. Till recently, the only available audio processing via USB from the Xonar camp was the lightweight U3, or the ultra high end Xonar Essence DACs that require the sale of essential body parts and organs to afford. The Xonar U7 offers 7.1 surround sound, S/PDIF out and a headphone amp for maximum versatility in a lightweight and compact case.

Connecting via USB, it requires no standalone power supply and works instantly setup-free with no need to open the PC case.

Powerful sound from a compact and portable device
Xonar U7 engineering overcomes the space and power supply limitations of other external USB-based audio devices to offer precise and immersive 7.1-channel surround. Sound processing uses 192kHz/24-bit fidelity for true high definition output, maintaining consistent quality across all surround channels.
