Sound Blaster/Vibra 128 vs. SB Live
So which one is better with regards to Signal to Noise ratio? - the SB/Vibra 128 or the SB Live?
Either technical doco, or user experence if u have tried both cards in a mp3car setup.... or is it just that the SB Live has the dolby surround/5.1 features that gives it the inflated costing?
I ask since I currently have a Vibra/SB 128 and whilst very, very slight I have a little hissing in the output....... I would like to bump the gains on my pre-amp/amp up a bit to get this thing louder (more power!) but it will start to get a little bit audible this slight hissing..... I wonder if shelling out the cash on a SB Live would help that? Im guessing that since marketed as a 'higher end' sound card that it would have better sound specs?
if no-one know the answer, I will just shell out the cash and try it anyway...... I can put a spare sound card to use somewhere....
on a related topic - I used to have a link to a website that rated alot of sound cards, in great detail... with S/N raitings/etc.... does anyone know of such a website?
