Professional 24-bit / 192 kHz 8 Output USB Audio Interface
GIGAPORT eX is not like any other USB audio interface ... it's simply the multichannel playback solution with the best price value ratio on the market due to its unique set of features providing 8 independent outputs (and full 7.1 surround sound support), 2 independent stereo headphone outputs and excellent audio quality supporting up to 24-bit and 192 kHz.
The upgrade of our famous GIGAPORT HD+ provides ASIO 2.0 drivers for professional audio mixing and playback under Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. The hardware is also CoreAudio compatible and natively works under OS X / macOS even without the installation of a special driver.
This makes GIGAPORT eX perfect for digital DJs on the road working with notebook computers. Simply use your favorite DJ software and the eight outputs as up to 4 different stereo channels, enabling you to mix, cue and add effects!
