External audio USB sound card Linux, Ubuntu

Couple of months ago I setup second workplace on my home PC using Multiseat technology. Everything worked fine, except I didn't have sound on 2nd workplace as I need 2nd sound card. I tried to use sound-card Creative Labs SB Live! - but it doesn't work, no drivers under Linux.

To have a sound I was looking for sound card what I can use with Linux without problem.

After research in Internet found one device:

Ordered this device on eBay:

USB 2.0 3D Virtual 7.1 Channel Audio Sound Card Adapter for PC Laptop WIN 7 MAC


Yesterday it was delivered.

Connected – it appeared in the list of audio device, setup this card as device for output sound and that's it! Works fine.


Nice inexpensive external USB audio card works in Ubuntu Linux.

In Ubuntu this device was dedected(lsusb) as: C-Media Electronics, Inc.

For today cost is US $1.82 with free delivery.

I recommend.
