I find it difficult to believe it is really that bad!

I presume you are using the G3PLX software? It uses 8Khz sampling so it will
need to be 5.290 +/- about 1.5KHz. Either side is possible but high avoids
QRMing the WSPR frequencies.

Is it stereo? You will get no rejection if it is not. I would have thought
the USB Creative would have worked, what is it? A SB24 Live? There should be
a W2000 driver.
