Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1
Great sound at a great price. I am using a hifi grade earphone, and it sound truly different between using this and a computer default sound card. It can drive the earphone without problem, and enhance the clarity. A companion on my office desk everyday.
Finally i find a product that works on mac with 5.1 surround speakers. I'll recommend for those who need really good music playback on mac. After a couple days of listening I found myself really enjoying. The music became much cleaner. You won't be disappointed, really.
