Take the drama out of your corporate audiovisual presentation with USB-PRO by Radial.
For anyone trying to get audio from a laptop, you may already have discovered that simply plugging a 3.5mm to 2 x 1/4" jack cable is not going to cut it every time. In fact, the ground loops and possible hum is so distracting, that it often makes the presentation unwatchable.
That's exactly where you need USB-PRO. It is equipped with isolation transformers that may be switched in to eliminate hum and buzz caused by stray DC voltage and ground loops.
Simply plug a USB cable from your laptop to the USB-PRO, and you then have full control over your stereo audio feed. A stereo pair of balanced XLR audio outputs with adjustable level control then feeds the signal to a microphone preamplifier, PA system, mixing console or even a powered speaker.

More info - via Radial website:
Made for plug and play simplicity, the USB-Pro will automatically be listed as an available sound card in the audio settings in all popular operating systems including Windows XP, Windows 7/8, and Mac OSX.
Digital-to-analog conversion can be monitored on headphones through the 3.5mm analog output to check signal quality and level before connecting to a sound system. A mono-sum switch may be engaged to check for phasing or for connection to a mono system. Should hum or buzz caused by ground loops be encountered, two recessed side-access switches allow the user to insert isolation transformers into the signal path. To further reduce susceptibility to noise, this is augmented with a ground lift switch that lifts pin-1 on both XLR jacks.
As with all Radial products, the USB-Pro is designed to handle the rigors of professional touring. Our unique book-end design creates protective zones around the switches, connectors and controls to keep them out of harm's way. Inside, our time-tested I-beam construction assures the sensitive internal PC board will not torque, which could cause premature part failure. Finally, a full bottom no-slip pad provides mechanical isolation and electrical insulation to ensure quiet operation.
