Good soundcard for music only Reply #25 – 2002-05-09 10:47:24 My understanding also is that things went downhill for Creative with the "Live!" cards. I would guess my SB PCI128 is probably better than the Live! both in S/N ratio and resampling... the card is essentially designed by Ensoniq which is (was) a sound company, and not a "marketing company" like Creative.Actually this will be my last Creative Labs product. They suck. And BTW (no flames please) in the area of video cards I'm dropping ATI like a red-hot coal & going to Matrox for my next card (2-D speed/IQ is really all I care about).
