Het herboren Sysopt.com heeft een review van de Creative Labs SBLive! gepost. Hier wat plakwerk over de sound kwaliteit:
It didn't take much time for me to be absolutely amazed by the high quality and fidelity of the sound produced by the SB Live! The sound is so pure, it's almost unbelievable. With the gold-coated connectors of this card, I no longer hear any buzzing sounds coming out when raising the speakers volume to the maximum. Even with the SB Live! Value edition, which doesn't come with gold connectors, the quality is still very high. It's like Creative Labs has taken a professional music studio and transformed it in a PCI card.
