Re: [perseus_SDR] Sound cards & " What you hear" function .
- Yesterday I connected the Perseus (with COM0COM and BobCAT, together
with the Icom IC-7700) on a Dell Vostro 1220 laptop and it works flawless!!

This is/was true. I purchased a Dell laptop 2 years ago and it indeed had no "what u hear" or "Mixer WaveOut" function. Note that most soundcards natively have this ability, but that Dell had disabled it in their driver! Users complained furiously about this and somewhere in 2008 Dell has released new drivers solving the "problem".
So I _guess_ you're safe but if I were you, I would demand a hard money-back guarantee on this issue in the PC-shop!
