Great Sound Again

I had bought two new laptops running Windows 10 both, however, only had a single audio socket for a headset and not proper stereo line inputs. As a result when trying to record my old LP records I would get prominent tick, tick, tick sounds with the music quietly underneath it. I eventually found and ordered a StarTech Stereo Audio USB External Sound Card with SPDIF Digital Audio. After a bit of changing inputs and setting the input as a USB microphone and output as the laptop's normal speakers the sound is perfect again. The search was not easy as I didn't really know what to look for - many USB adapters are not stereo, and this is. I got mine from Span.com as I'm in the UK.
