Difference between Live and 2 ZS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So what's the difference between Sound Blaster Live 24bit, and Sound Blaster 2 ZS? The 2 ZS cost like twice as much. How much difference is in the quality?
Not bad at all...

the Live is much older Tech,but it works.
the Audigy2 give much "cleaner" sound and much more features.
The A2 should also give you better overall system performance as well.
However,this line has been discontinued and is getting tuff to find.
you can read much more at this site
http://us.creative.com
click on the products tabs and go from there.
click on support and there you will find a forum much like this one.
or go to newegg.com and read the write ups and judge for yourself.
Which on to get? depends on your budget!
here is price range

Live!=$30+S&H [Creative,newegg]--Basic sound.
Audigy 2 =$75+S&H [Newegg]--Better Sound, THX!
Audigy 4= $79 [bestbuy,circuitcity,creative]--Even Better Sound
Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic $130[everyone carries this]- -Best on the Market from what i've read.
