Ultra Clean Sound From Andrea Electronics

pure audio usb stickPress Release:  Andrea Electronics Revolutionizes PC Sound Quality with Debut of New High Fidelity USB Sound Card. Andrea Electronics revolutionizes PC sound with their all new PureAudioâ„¢ USB-SA high fidelity external sound card.  Yes, it’s the shape of a USB stick, but it packs the power of even the most impressive sound cards.  In fact, it’s designed to surpass the quality of hi-end sound cards. Andrea Electronics is a specialist in noise cancelation technology and has incorporated their technology into the PureAudioâ„¢ USB-SA sound card.  The idea is to provide superior tools for noise cancelation so conversations via VoIP, gaming chats, or on-line video such as YouTube will sound much better than from traditional sound cards found inside your PC.

usb sound card

One of the fundamental problems with sound cards inside your computer is their location.  Sitting right next to a power supply or processor means there is audio degradation from noise emitted from these devices.  By having the PureAudioâ„¢ USB-SA external sound card away from all this, your sound quality is greatly improved.  Coupled with the Andrea Electronics noise cancellation technology it’s unlikely you’ll get anything as clean and clear as the PureAudioâ„¢ USB-SA.
“We were immediately impressed by the compact size and the quality. The full duplex device isn’t just a petite pretty face. It produced the lowest noise floor of any previous soundcard we’ve tested.” said Lunis Orcutt of KnowBrainer, value added reseller of speech recognition equipment and software.  “The USB-SA seems to be well thought out and attractively priced. Some of the microphones that we sell have difficulty with full duplex USB Pods but none have a problem with the USB-SA, which is now our favorite.”
The PureAudio™ USB-SA external sound card is available from a number of on-line retailers and outlets.  Pricing is $45USD.  Andrea Electronics product page. Continue Reading

The remote will be priced at $130 when it ships, and the CDX-H910UI marine receiver priced at about $350.  Nothing for a boat is cheap.  After all doesn’t B.O.A.T. mean Bust out Another Thousand?
