Not quite yet. The card that I picked up is an SB Live 24-Bit.
I'm currently running a test stream with it and all is fine. Considering that the source is the output of an SCA receiver, it really sounds pretty good. It sounds pretty much the same as our public Real Audio stream that is picked off ahead of the SCA feed.
But I also tried to bring it up as a client under Linux, and no dice. Apparently the 24-Bit isn't well supported yet. I found one person who had gotten it going but he reported that it sounded like crap. Very recent traffic.
I'll wait a little while before giving up on it. I suspect drivers will follow. BTW, it appears to NOT be based on the same chip set that other SB Live boards use.
