Creative sound blaster SB0270 sound card for PC. Tested and working. Sound card only no leads or drivers. All software and drivers can be easily downloaded from the.
The product comes with a mini DSP-like array of features that allows you to tune the sound stage the way you would like it to sound. This means that you will never be constrained by the recording quality of any MP3 song or game as you would be able to tune the sound accordingly. However, even if you leave everything at default settings, the sound is already enhanced as compared to the onboard sound chip/card of your notebook/PC. This product is best matched to a 5.1 sound system. I was using a system (low budget at $55) with a 25 watt RMS subwoofer and the highs and lows, clarity and deep bass from the system has blown my friends away when played as it matches and even surpassed systems that would cost ten times more.
They simply could not comprehend that music can sound so good with strong separation of channels and enhanced through stereo surround from 5 speakers. THe whole front area becomes a huge sound stage.

The pinnacle of sound came when I managed to hook up a Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 megaworks with THX Certification and 500 watts of pure RMS power. Romain Gary. Though old technology and already a defunct model, the whole setup made the same group of friends realise that you do not have to spent thousands to enjoy incredible sound. This also has caused them to rethink about going wireless when analogue can actually sound so good. My only grouse is that it would be great if the product can be a little smaller and come with a retractable/adjustable USB connection.
The one given is a little too long. Highly recommended with 5.1 setup.
Hi?In case you haven't had any success, I was faced with exactly the same problem (ie new PC and no SB0270 installation CD)?but I have managed to get my SB0270 up and running again. I found a driver specifically for the SB0270 on. The download filename is USBDCOMBDRVLB000030. As regards the software I noticed someone?on another forum saying they used?the Audacity?product and I downloaded the.2.6 'stable' version. Lots of help for the software on wikipaedia.- and after a little familiarisation it seems to be quite good. If you want to export any captured music to MP3, you will also need to download the LAME MP3 encoder. Anyway I am happy to say that it is all working on my Windows XP laptop - and that my project to convert my vinyl to CD is back on!?Hope this hel ps.
I've tried all the above links and scoured the web for a working driver for this device-epic fail!? I've never been more furious with a company in my life. It would be one thing if they put out a CURRENT product that did what I needed it to do, but they don't. But to compound the problem by discontinuing drivers for one of their older products that DID work? And I don't know how many hours of my personal time I wasted jumping through the hoops of all those 'driver update' sites that DID NOT GIVE ME THE DRIVER, just got me to install THEIR useless update software. I ended up having to get it from a Russian site, only to find out that it needed 'Windows 2000 or higher'-apparently it can't read the version of Windows 7 correctly.
All I can say is, I can safely say I will never purchase another Creative product, and I will tell others of this experience.
