Dick Smith Electronics USB 2.0 External Sound CardGot this on special for just under $20, for use with Skype.
Worked first go with Linux 2.6.15, ALSA drivers - from dmesg:
usb 2-4: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3 input: C-Media USB Headphone Set as /class/input/input4 input: USB HID v1.00 Device [C-Media USB Headphone Set ] on usb-0000:00:02.1-4 usb 2-4: USB disconnect, address 3
it identifies as a C-Media headhone set - but works perfectly. Sounds OK, but noiser than the uca202.
Looking inside the PC board identifies it as a Gamtec MB-102 which it presumably is a rebadged version.
Has a bright blue/purple LED that flashes when the audio is active.
