Why Is The Sb Live So Bad? 2002-09-05 19:57:48 Everywhere I read that the SB Live is a crappy sounding piece of crap directly to be tossed into the bin. The question is WHY? Is there any website explaining? And I think on this forum was mentioned that the SB 128 PCI was be much better... The SB Live was a great improvement on my system (before I used a SB16... ISA, with IDE, CT2290 to be precise. Yep... the modell from 1994. Now THAT is noise. But still a great card).
