Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus is one of the measurably excellent soundcards with a sensible price tag. You will quite literally never need a better audio interface, as any improvements would fall under the human ear's tolerance. The headphone amplifier won't run most inefficient heavyweight headphones like Audeze LCD-2, but otherwise, the plethora of interconnects, good build, and balanced outputs make it one of the most appetizing options.

If you only need USB to stereo, the NwAvGuy ODAC by JDS Labs is crazy cheap value, also measurably and audibly flawless, but less features. I would personally recommend this over anything else. It's also tiny and cute

But yeah, a budget and feature list would help us specify products more tailored to your needs, if you need something specific.

^^

Also note which inputs / outputs you need and what you'll be using them for (what headphones, speakers)? For music, games, movies, what? etc.

If someone starts recommending sound cards/DACs based on musical genres I'm going to scream in a manner fitting to my avatar.
