    External 24-bit

    Hi,

    Bought this yesterday. Tried it on the carputer (in kitchen until car comes back), and it seems pretty cool. Just wondering what the general opinion of these things are, and I'd say it'd go well with JBL 75.2 and 1201.1 amps powering RE 12" (1) and a set of Rainbow SLX265 Deluxes?

    Probably RCA, so go SB->HU->Amp 1, and the LPF from that to sub amp.
    It 'left the origin country' (UK) on Saturday and still isn't here (Ireland)!
    Betcha it is, the bloody Irish haven't a clue about customer service/efficiency

    Amen to that, and even with ****ty $10 computer speakers, the difference between OBS and the SB Live is like night and day, and even better - the quality between the headphone socket and front out is astonishing. Not a bad deal for $70

    I use that SB card in my current setup. Front and rear outputs going into 4-ch Kicker amp. Damn nice sound, do not have any complaints. I usually have the amp at about 25% gain, and the computer at 20%-30% volume and it is clear as a bell, and if i turn it upwards of 50% on the computer it is LOUD with no distortion. I am VERY pleased with this sound card, I am sure you will like it too!

    Does this sound card support hibernation? My Audigy2 NX doesn't support it, and I'm looking for an alternative.
