I ve heard that creative was working on a new DSP, supposed to be 4 times more powerful than the emu10k1 (located on sound blaster live cards).
I just went to soundblaster.com and seen that they re releasing the sound blaster audigy. Maybe it s this new card.

Creative's Audigy is looking very nice. It use the EMU10K2, the successor to the EMU10K1..

Creative pretty much owns the sound card market. Their last real competition was Aureal but they were bought out by Creative about a year ago.

wow everyone's for SB live lol

Doesn't anyone use any other cards listed in the poll besides SB Live! ? Those of you that have tried it, what do you think of them? How does it compare to SB Live! etc.

I've got friends with the Santa Cruz, they say it's awesome. It also conforms to the PCI spec, so it doesn't have loads of problems with some mainboard chipsets.

Ah, good ol' Creative. Nothing like following an industry standard. :D Very trusted name at this point. Hope they don't end up like Micro$oft.

SonicFury/Santa Cruz is acclaimed as having the best quality of those soundcards. It's also significantly cheaper than the 5.1 platinum, and doesn't have the problems many sblive users have been having with motherboards in particular those with the 686b southbridge.

Rumours from motherboard manufacturers regarding nForce say the delays are stemming from the sound implementation. Of course, rumours are merely rumours.
