Disappointed by the poor sound quality from laptop and some onboard sound cards, Burning Blue Audio is introducing the PowerPak, a USB-powered and USB-controlled headphone amplifier / audio card. The PowerPak takes digital audio and converts it to an analog signal. It then amplifies the audio specifically for headphone usage. Because the device is completely USB-powered there is no need for batteries or an AC adapter.
To ensure high-quality sound, the PowerPak uses a digital-analog converter (DAC) designed specifically for high quality headphone amplification. The device bypasses internal computer sound cards, and as a result, all analog audio processing stays outside of the electrically noisy computer enclosure.
The PowerPak's small size (1 x 2 x 3 in.) takes up very little space, and its lightweight and rugged construction makes it ideal for transporting anywhere. Burning Blue Audio's CEO and Founder, Geoff Meredith commented, "The PowerPak is the perfect solution for people who want to listen to music on their computers, regardless of where their computer is located."
The PowerPak has a quick and easy plug-and-play installation. Most modern operating systems already have the required drivers, so there is no additional software to install. The PowerPak will run digital audio files using existing audio software. And, the PowerPak easily connects to any Mac or PC computer with a USB port via a standard USB cable.
