I don't recommend buying a preamp for a soundblaster really. External
preamps are usually very good and quite pricey. You would be better off
getting a decent sound card that has a decent preamp instead of putting
a ferrari engine in a an old VW bug!

Check out the presonus firebox, they are good cards with surprisingly
good preamps for the price. The inputs on a soundblaster are really not
very good and the improvement in signal from your external preamp would
be wasted.
