While it’s certainly not essential, a stereo card can add ‘flavor’ to your Apple IIGS experience. It’s also important to consider carefully which stereo card you use (if you can even find one), because reliability and sound fidelity can vary from brand to brand. That’s why we’re happy to see ‘Drew’ Webber is producing a second round of his high quality TDX ][ stereo cards. They’re reasonably priced, and offer GREAT stereo sound output from your Apple IIGS. I expect the estimated run of 25 to 50 boards to sell briskly, so get on the waiting list NOW or you might miss out.
