Q1:How to use SPDIF out play Dolby / DTS content on Win7?
A:SPDIF out set passthrough mode
Q2: Why doesn’t my microphone seem to work or record?
A: Most microphones or headsets on the market today house a TRS (Tip Ring Sleeve) jack and the USB-AUDIO is designed to accommodate this. Mono or TS (Tip Sleeve) microphones will need a 3.5mm mono to stereo adapter installed in line in order to work converting TS to TRS (see image below for visual example). XLR microphones (even if adapted to 3.5mm TRS) will also not work.
Q3: Can I use the USB-AUDIO output as well as the default output jack at the same time?
A: No. Most operating systems support multiple audio outputs, but only allow a single one to be enabled at a time. So this manual step of selecting the right audio output from the operating system’s built-in audio control panel is essential.
Q4: Does the USB-AUDIO need drivers to work?
A: No drivers are necessary. Just go to your system settings and select the USB audio device as default input and output device.
Q5: I plug in the USB-AUDIO and I don’t hear anything, what else can I do?
A: An extra step is needed. After plugging in the USB-AUDIO, also ensure the audio adapter is set to be your primary playback- and recording device in your control panel or system preferences.
