    How would this compare to the SoundBlaster 3? I have a Kulp K8-PB and was going with the soundblaster mainly because Dan Kulp called it out in the user manual, but this is significantly cheaper hah.

    Thanks

    I had the cheap USB cards and found the sound quality so so at best on a pi.
    The biggest difference is going to be sound quality and the fact the Soundblaster 3 is amplified.
    Not knocking the cheap USB cards, great to keep as a spare but the SB3 will win hands down in quality.
    Of course, all of this is coupled with the quality of your FM transmitter.
    Garbage in/Garbage out as we say in IT.

    I imagine the Soundblaster is a better device.
    For me, this is a no way I can lose item to test with.
    Who knows, it may work very well.
    It certainly has a lot of positive reviews on amazon.

    I have a SB3 and a few cheap ones. I was previously using a cheap one and it worked fine. The SB3 is defiantly is amplified, I ran fpp at 100% volume with the cheap one with the SB3 I am at 30% volume and its louder than the cheap one at 100%.

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    Great thanks all. Probably worth buying one as a spare to the SB3 then in case things go awry.
