    not to mention the fact you could do this with any soundcard using a line in port (for stereo, a mic port would give mono recording)

    true - my point was more that even my first PC, a pentium 90, could have done this job. its an utterly redundant product.

    but you could also do this by recording the "what you hear track" or something like that ...

    It's usually called stereo mix.

    And this does just the trick for RCA:

    Had to pick one of these up recently when a capture card had only a 3.5mm in :)
