Yes in principle my laptop sound system is full duplex and stereo in/out.
The stereo works fine when playing cd's and playing .wav.
But I cannot test more as - I said that earlier- I only have a single mono
mic input externally available.
But your remarkton the CD stimulated my thinking and probably it will not be
too difficult to find the cd player output wires ( if there is an analog CD
output - it could also be digitally connected to the card) to get a stereo
But it is not too important for me. Linrad was challenging to get it
running, but for my microwave practice the windows filter programmes are
easier to run. But nor these nor linrad have yet been able to surpass my
ears in decoding weak signals.
