Yesterday I had purchased a Creative 5.1 (5200) speaker system for my Creative sound blaster live 5.1 card from a shop named Venus electronics in Bangalore, India. As per the instruction leaflet, I connected the speaker system to my card, but the centre speaker is not working. I checked for functionality of the centre speaker with other ports (LH, RH, Rear), it works. What could be reason for the malfunction of the centre speaker? Is there any problem with the Sub-woofer box (Amplifier) or... (read more)

Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1: This is a good all around board with good software but the lack of support and problems related with this board if something goes wrong is frustrating and to be avoided. I would not recommend this board or any Creative product as support is just too bad and frustrating to deal with. Try to get support before you buy and then decide for yourself. (read more)

Ok, I am on my computer and put a cd in turn the music on, But the sound is just not what I expect, I am very disapointed. This is what I felt like before I found the Creative Soundblaster live 5.1 Sound Card, My mate had a sound card which had 5.1 surround sound and even though he had two standard speakers the quality was exellant. I wanted to buy a 5.1 sound card but the one my mate had was very expensive (over £100) and I did not have that money to spare. I browsed the interent and found... (read more)

This board is good for the money but it took a lot of long distance calls at my expense no 800 # to call in Canada. It took a long time to get them to give me authorization to send it to them even though it was a brand new board. I refuse to buy any Creative Products as they are just too hard to get support from...period (read more)

Don`t confuse the Creative Soundblaster live 5.1 Digital Entertainment (DE) with the Creative live 5.1 Value. They are totally different soundcards. Only better thing than 5.1 DE is Audigy and platinum series in all over the world and it's the first 5.1 card that doesn`t need Dolby Digital Decoder. It has its own decoder software. But Value is a cheap version of this card that does not have anything to do with real quality in Creative world. (read more)

Creative so far has not been of any help with my Soundblaster Live 5.1 Sound Card. I'm taking this one back and getting my money back. I'v had a soundblaster live value for 4 years and have had no trouble with it. It's too bad I can't say the same thing for the Creative Soundblaster live 5.1. (read more)

The Sound BLaster Live! card from Creative is one quality peice of kit. The sound quality is amazing, and the software ain't too bad either, actually it's great. I recommend this card to anyone who has a good ear for sound. (read more)

The SoundBlaster Live 5.1 from Creative is a well-priced (oem version) sound card with excellent features and sound. Marred by incompatibilty with many motherboards and needs to be set up by a real expert if you have a VIA chipset on your board. (read more)
