    I am thinking of getting a Turtle Beach Micro so that I can connect my Dell laptop to my hi-fi system via an external DAC. Price is ~ £25.00 which seems very reasonable.

    Is this a good option?

    Are there better solutions?

    Looks geared towards gaming and 5.1/7.1 sound?

    My set-up is stereo only.

    i'm pairing it with a set of Klipsch Promedia Ultras 5.1.. not too much into gaming, but more into movies.....

    a gd sound card is a gd investment....

    Agreed.

    I am now thinking of streaming the music from my PC to my hi-fi system via a SqueezeBox - but this is a much more expensive option. :(
