Creative Labs Ships Soundblaster Live!
5:12 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

After announcing the SoundBlaster Live! for Macintosh over a year ago, and demonstrating the product at Macworld San Francisco this year, Creative Labs announced today that they are finally shipping their long awaited sound card. The SoundBlaster Live! allows Mac users to finally experience true surround sound. It will be bundled with a suite of audio applications, which includes SoundJam MP and an EAX enabled version of Deus Ex. Here is a clip from the press release:

Honored by the editors of Macworld Magazine as one of the 'Best of Show' products at Macworld Expo in San Francisco, CA, the Sound Blaster Live! incorporates the revolutionary EMU10K1™ digital signal processor (DSP) to provide the power needed to generate crystal-clear audio files. Because processing and playback remain entirely digital, audio files maintain the highest level of audio quality with settings optimized for headphones, two-channel or four-channel speaker systems. Taking full advantage of the digital output connector on the Sound Blaster Live! for Macintosh, users can experience precise clarity when connected to speaker systems such as the highly-acclaimed Cambridge SoundWorks® FourPointSurround™ FPS2000 Digital speakers to experience digital-audio nirvana.
The SoundBlaster Live! will retail for $149 US; we have spotted it online as low as $120. You can get more information about this card from Creative Labs' web site and our preview of this fantastic piece of audio hardware.
