Totallymaxed is it possible to provide us with the make and models of the USB cards you all have used.
And to anybody that uses USB audio devices, please post it here.
I'm having a hard time getting one that works with squeezeslave, although it might be a bug in pulseaudio and/or squeezeslave at the moment.
I will make a wiki page with USB cards table for future reference.
We purchase much of our components OEM so they will not be available from other suppliers - or not easily identifiable as such anyway. However we have tested pretty much all of the current Startech lineup and they all work for us. Now Startech OEM these to other companies (inluding us) so you will find here hardware sold under many different brands in addition to the Startech brand itself. See the Wiki page for a reference to a mid priced Startech unit.
I would suggest starting with Startech as if they do no work for you then its certainly not a problem with sound card.
All the best
