SoundBlaster Live Ship Date
8:37 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story
Creative Labs has posted in Accelerate Your Mac!'s forum the news that the Mac version of the SoundBlaster Live sound card should be shipping next week, after months and months of delays. This ship date is due to a very small and last-minute disaster that forced CL to push the date back yet another week from their projected March release. Here's an excerpt from the statement:
Good news folks! You heard it here first. Check out the specs for more information about this sound card. These are considered standard equipment on the PC side, but now Mac users will be able to experience true positional sound, support for digital SPDIF, 4:1 sound and other benefits that come with a dedicated sound card.
Preview: SoundBlaster Live
It appears that, BARRING ANY UNFORSEEN, LAST MINUTE DISASTERS, we'll be packing boxes late next week and shipping shortly thereafter!
It's sounding *really* good, and I'm quite pleased with its audio enhancements on both my G4-350 and my old PM9600. This thing with a set of Cambridge FPS2000 digital speakers sounds awesome.
Thanks for all of your support. I still think this is the best thing to happen to Macintosh audio in a long time. Certainly at the price point. Enjoy, and TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
