I'm looking for a decent usb sound card to upgrade my laptop.
Currently, I could find the following cards in my city, Toronto,

1. Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX
2. Creative Sound Blaster MP3+
3. Zalman ZM-RSSC 5.1 
4. Zalman ZM-RSA Real Surround Sound
5. M-Audio Sonica Theater 7.1 Surround Sound
6. M-Audio Transit USB Mobile Audio Upgrade

I will use the card mainly for musics and movies with an Altec Lansing
MX5021 (2.1) speaker set. As I'm using it with my laptop, I prefer
usb-powered cards. I'm right now seriously looking at Zalman ZM-RSSC
5.1 (~US$55). Does anyone have experience with this card? If it works,
how is the sound quality?

If you don't know this card, what do you recommend? My buget is
US$100. What card works the best so far?

Thanks a lot,
