Since the onboard sound chip on my laptop spits pretty lousy sound, I decided to look around for an alternative. I landed at the TerraTec AureonDual that a direct comparison can certainly be proud of. The USB stick is not only convincing by its sonic characteristics - the difference is clearly audible! - But also by its elegant design. In addition, the sound card scores with its ease of use (no installation is necessary, because the operating system automatically recognizes the device). You then only has to be selected and get started already kan in the Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices.
Conclusion: The TerraTec AureonDual is for Skype or listening to music is the first choice in bad laptop sound.
