CMedia CM106 USB headphones

I recently purchased the Saitek Cyborg 5.1 headset. It has analog stereo and mic connections, which work great, and a USB connection for surround sound support. Unfortunately, the later is not working under Arch (works fine in Windows). Here is all the information I could find on them regarding to Linux compatibility:

-They use CM106 chipset

-Phoronix claims a headset with the same chipset works under Suse out of the box: … =592&num=3

-This site suggests drivers compatible with the chipset (usbhid and snd-usb-audio), but I really do not know what to do with this information:

-This chipset is used in the Dell Inspiron 1520 (according to previous site). Varrious Ubuntu forum posts recommend getting the sound working under Ubuntu by downloading the following package: . I can't actually figure out what is in that package that has anything to do with audio.

Thanks in advance,
