REVIEW: SoundBlaster MP3+

MP3A long long time ago, when I still read GamesMaster magazines, I spotted an article in the back of a mag for this little beast..

This is basically a USB sound card, with many features. It has the option to output via line, headphones, optical (TOSLink) and can take input from line, mic, optical (TOSLink) and USB!

I purchased this for around £30 with a view to output sound from my PC via the optical out socket to my minidisc player some 12 years ago… Yet today, I find my self plugging this puppy in to output my MediaCenter PC sound to my plasma, and my Sony CMT-M333NT. The sound quality on this device is faultless, and even though it’s output from the PC is USB2 there’s no lag at all in sound.

Creative still have a ‘flash’ product tour over on their website, you can find it here 

I would highly recommend this for any PC to Stereo connection!

I rate this product 10 out of 10!
