    I realize this is a shot in the dark here, but has anyone seen/heard a pair of Klipsch's new multimedia speaker setup, the ProMedia v.2 400s? If so, i dont suppose youve had a chance to compare them...

    The software is also different. The full version comes with a few mixing and editing type programs. Of course, if youre anything like me, you really dont care about that. ...

    Sound quality and preferences are pretty subjective. Everyone will have their own opinion, and none are necessarily more correct than others. However, in my opinion, the SBLive! is pretty much the...

    Im not sure there are any differences. The SBLive! full comes with the I/O daughter card, and a pile of software. The SBLive! Value comes without the daugher card or software. As far as i know, the...

    Id go for the SBLive! Value. Theyre almost dirt cheap right now, you should be able to find one for well under $60US, $100CDN. Honestly, i dont think youll notice a large difference between that and...

    Sounds like some sort of interference to me. If youre comfortable with such an operation, you could try moving the card to a different PCI slot. You could also try the universal fix-all, updated...

    All of the above. Likely, since youre likely playing MP3s through the wave mapper, and since you can play WAV files fine, I would think its not a hardware issue.

    To use surround sound, you need a compatible card, such as the SBLive, not just the speakers. Since you already have 2 of the 4 speakers, you only need 2 more, and a sub if you like. I recommend the...

    Do you mean the full 4 speakers? Or do you already have 2 and just need 2 more?

    I think you may be just hearing the standard Shockwave noise. Ive had 3 different soundcards over the last little while, including a Live, and they all do that.

    It can be done. I use a dual boot, win 98 and win NT. I bought an SBLive, and it absolutely would NOT work in NT, so i went out and blew 10 bucks on a generic ISA card, just to play MP3s in NT. But I...
