Really Impressive USB speakers
I just tried out a set of USB-only speakers on my laptop and was really impressed that they actually worked. I don't really get it but somehow (after a restart unfortunately), these speakers just go in and take over the sound system. They do not use the on-board AC97 hardware. They have only one plug, a USB plug, for both power and audio. It must do some kind of really low-level tinkering because there are no drivers or anything, and it works under linux too.
Anybody know how these work? I'm pretty impressed.
