Windows 7: USB Sound Card or DAC

USB Sound Card or DAC

Does anyone know of a USB sound card or USB DAC that will work with Corsair SP2500 speakers and sound as good or better than the ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card?

What is better? depends on the user and what they want or hear. What one person considers "great" someone else may consider mediocre.

e.g. I like the HT Omega sound cards better than the Xonar or SoundBlaster for PC audio. I have a (home) recording studio and I have other high end audio devices and studio monitors for that specific application. What I have some would consider "crap" and others wish they had it.

Yowch! The Essence Ones are a bit pricy! The U7 isn't too shabby. I'll have to compare specs. I need only 2.0 output.

Thanks!
