Usb interface suggestion

Good evening everyone,

I'm looking for a usb sound card for my computer (the computer has no integrated sound card and no free slots, only usb2 ports) This computer will be used only for video production (maybe for some games also).

I already have a computer for audio production so no need for any audio inputs, a mere stereo output will be sufficient. Now I don't really trust these usb interfaces, I had a bad experience with a Focusrite that I returned because it wasn't working nice and was causing bsod. So I don't know if there are really reliable ones.

here are the features that I need :

-Good converter, good audio

-Able to render 24bit 48khz audio

-Just one stereo output (nothing else, inputs aren't needed)

-Flawless : No noise, pops, bugs, bsod whatsoever. No drivers, or really reliable solid and simple drivers that work with both windows 7 sp1 and (if possible) windows 10.

-God enough latency for video editing

-Not expensive.


Thanks a lot for you advice if you have any.

Honestly, most onboard sound cards meet that requirement.



AMD Ryzen 7 1800x 8 core 16 thread at stock speed

64GB 3000mhz DDR4

Radeon VII

Windows 10


ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo 32GB (9980HK CPU, RTX 2060 GPU, dual 4K touch screens, main one OLED HDR)

Good morning Frosty,
Unfortunately my motherboard doesn't have an onboard card.

I have Shure sm7b and Focusrite preamp, I've had no problems with the preamp.
