    Not into the speakers. It has a high quality audio cord that goes to your stereo. We listen to internet radio through the Xitel to our normal stereo. Even having the PC in another room (the cable is about 10m and the USB cable adds to this, but you need a secure place to put the Xitel 'halfway', so nobody steps on it).
    I think their website tells it all (did you see I put a link in my first post?).

    ahhh I see. I'm really after a bog standard sound card. But due to limitations of my hardware (i.e. its a Proliant server ML110 with none standard PCI slots) I have to find a USB sound card/device that i can get working with SUSE 10.3 - my search continues........

    I thought I'd try a Creative Blaster Connect (USB sound device) this also does not work

    I had to look on the ALSA site and they do list the "Creative Blaster Connect" but there are no details under "Driver". Does this means its supported or not? Other unsupport devices are noted in the Notes.

    My SUSE box does pick up the device if I run lsusb but when going into YaST - HARDWARE - SOUND it says "No card found".

    The other thing I noticed is that ALSA is on 1.0.16 according to the web site, but my TaST repository shows the latest version as 1.0.14 - Is there any way to fix this? Or how to I manually install the latest ALSA?

    I do not know if yoy did with YaST as I suggested for the Xitel in the HCL, so I will repeat that here.

    If YaST > Hardware > Sound does not recognise it, so click Add and then choose Generic in the first column, That will give you but one optione in the second: USB Audio, select and cary on.

    Scratch that last post. I noticed in the HCL list that the xitel USB sound card worked by "Add in YaST with "Sound card vendor: Generic" and "Sound card model: USB Audio". Driver used: snd-usb-audio.".

    I did this to my Creative Blaster Connect and it works!!

    I've updated the HCL with this info.

    I the old forum I happened to help one guy with the same solution (don't which sound-card). He said: "how stupid, it is so easy". But it is only easy as you know where to look. I think this might work for many USB sound-cards, but how should one tell the world!

    Anyhow concrats and enjoy the music .

    O, and please scrib, before we forget, could you please add the hex codes for vendor and card-type to the HCL in the same way as I did it, between ()?

    This are the numbers you get with lsusb like 0bda:0111. Before the : is the vendor enad after it the card.

    OK done - I wondered what they were. Are they some sort of unique code for the card?

    Yes they are. And even when people do not exactly know what they have (after all the box may be thrown away, the vendor may have a newer type selling it the same as the earlier one being internaly different, etc) the lsusb tells it all. Well it should when vendors do this coorectly.
