Creative Announces First USB 2.0 Sound Blaster X-FI sound card


Creative Technology announced the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1, the first USB 2.0 audio solution that provides users with the easiest upgrade from basic, built-in audio to the premium Xtreme Fidelity (X-Fi) audio experience for their PC and notebook.

The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1's elegant black design in simple clean lines belies the X-Fi technology and high quality connectivity that enhances users' aural enjoyment of their music, movies and games. Users can simply connect the device to their PC or notebook via the USB port and turn their MP3 and iTunes music into their own personal concert. The X-Fi technology also allows users to immerse themselves in full cinematic surround sound while watching their favourite DVDs or downloaded videos. Creative's EAX ADVANCED HD effects also provide realistic game play.

The X-Fi technology comprises two main features:
X-Fi 24-bit Crystalizer - The X-Fi 24-bit Crystalizer revitalises downloaded music and movies by restoring the details and vibrance that music and movies lost during compression. The X-Fi technology intelligently enhances all the highs and lows so everything can be heard in crystal clarity, making MP3s sound even better than CDs.

X-Fi CMSS-3D - The X-Fi CMSS-3D technology expands stereo MP3s and digital movies into virtual multi-speakers or headphones. Voices are centred in front of users with ambient sounds accurately positioned all around them, similar to a live performance.

With the built-in X-Fi technology, users of the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 can now enjoy all their music, movies and games with one easy-to-use device that gives them premium cinematic sound quality and realistic surround sound effect on virtually any speaker systems or headphones.
