The mini-jack out put of my 2009 MacBook has become temperamental after a few years of frequent plugging in and unplugging my speakers and headphones. I was looking at a costly jack replacement but this affordable little USB device has saved me the expense. There is no perceptible loss of sound quality. In fact, while it's hard for me to properly A/B test, there might be a slight improvement, especially in the bass. Also, I have it hooked into a hub so it means there is one less thing to unplug when I take my laptop out of my office. All this at a great price.
One caveat, I needed to take a minute to go into Sound Preferences "output" (under Hardware in the System Preferences) and select C-Media USB to get it to work.
