    Hi Mactester, on the power switch black wire solder, there are two pads on that side of switch, do you solder both leads to black, or just far side?

    I have a question regarding the USB sound adapter. I bought the same one as you did (the white one), but I was disappointed when I discovered how bad the audio quality was. Thinking it was simply because of it being so cheap, I started planning to replace it. But then I booted into Windows, and to my surprise, the audio quality was great. It seems like an issue between the device and OS X. All the mids are cut off, so some voices are silent.

    Have you experienced the same with your audio adapter? Have you found any way to remedy it in OS X?

    I've never compared the sound quality with windows, because I don't have windows on this machine.

    BTW:
    I've installed Sierra today in accordance with this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/direct-update-to-macos-sierra-using-clover.201465/

    Works fine so far. I only had to do the following steps:
    • updating Clover
    • updating essential kexts in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
    • after everything still worked fine, I've also updated the Clover thumb drive
    • updating FakeSMC.kext, FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext, FakePCIID.kext in S/L/E
    • downloading and executing the Sierra installer
    • disabling the El Capitan boot screen garble patch in Clover (Kernel Panic)
    • replacing AppleIntelE100e.kext with IntelMausiEthernet.kext (because of no ethernet after sleep)
