Sound Cards again

  shellship 17:42 30 Jan 2005

The Creative Soundblaster Live! that came with my Dell 8200 in 2002 has, I think, decided to misbehave. I get distortion at higher frequencies/volumes. Have checked the speaker set up on another machine - no problem. Checked the CDs on another player - no problem.

Latest issue of PCA features sound cards but does not include the basic Creative SB Live! I am not a gamer, nor a composer, but I do like listening to music, mainly classical, while at the keyboard, and good reproduction is important. My speaker set up is 2.1 with a woofer which has performed not to badly.

Any advice out there as to the best sound card for my limited purposes, please.

This looks quite good, click here. You won't be needing so many channels though.

You can also have a look at this click here or click here.

Thanks. Can't believe price of Asonic, but one review said that while it was good for gaming it wasn't so hot at audio reproduction. Will probably go for SBLive but will wait to see if any more postings.
