I have just bought the altec lansing Acs 48 speakers (two satellites, 1 subwoofer). I am about to use it mainly for mp3 output and some cd audio. I am currently using Old ISA sound blaster 16. My question is if there is a big different in quality of mp3 output (which is in fact, the wave channel), or almost no difference?
Please answer from experience, and not from a guess. Also, if I should replace my sound card, would you recommend me the Diamond sound impact s70/90, or maybe creative labs sound blaster pci64/128, or maybe even the sound blaster live value?
Please note I am not really intrested in 4 speaker support (I am having only two and a subwoofer, which does not need 4 speaker support), Games or midi, but I am do intrested in mp3 output (the wave channel output).
