Soundblaster 5.1 Digital soundcard: Model Number?

  Flopper 14:26 15 Jan 06

I am in the market for a pair of Sounblaster 5.1 Digital soundcards for my boy's PCs but I am confused by the various versions and model numbers. I need the cards to support true surround sound out of both 4 and 5 speakers. On the web so far I have picked up at least 6 model numbers. I believe (probably incorrectly) that CT4830 is the Value range, CT4760 is the Live Player and SB0220is an OEM version (of what model?), etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
The cards must be 5.1 Digital.


  citadel 14:50 15 Jan 06 has all the info on soundbaster cards. If you can afford it the audigy 2 zs is excellent for games, music, and dvd films.

I agree with citadel.

I also have the Audigy 2 ZS soundcard and the sound quality on it is excellent especially in games.

I have the SoundBlaster Live! Value and its model number is CT 4670 - which doesn't tie up with your thinking...:-)

It has SPDIF facilities.
