USB Tube Delight Audio: Modern Sound Card in a Retro Package

by Lambert Varias

Brando’s got a portable sound card for you, and it’s packaged in a cute, totally not senseless, vacuum tube-style case. All you need to do is plug it in to your computer via it’s mini USB-to-USB adapter, plug in your headphones and/or mic, and you’re good to go. The blue light that turns on as you plug in the sound card will fade out when the card is idle.

The sound card supports 16Bit 16KHz / 32KHz / 48KHz playback & recording with a THD+N at -73dB, and SNR at 85dB. Now I’m no engineer, but after conducting extensive research I can definitely say without certainty that the lower the THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and the higher the SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) ratings, the better the sound quality will be. Bet you didn’t know that. I just dropped some knowledge bombs on you, courtesy of Brando. Of course I still don’t know just how good this sound card is without knowing the standard ratings. So. Maybe you can drop me some bombs of your own.

You can get the USB tube delight audio for only $32 (USD) at Brando. I’m content with seeing a well-thought out gadget from those crazy folks and their sources.
