Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1

Why settle for basic, built-in sound? Your music and movies deserve Xtreme Fidelity. Simply connect the Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 sound card to your PC or notebook and turn your downloaded music into your own personal concert. Watch DVDs or downloaded videos with full cinematic surround sound. Plus experience 3D audio and EAX effects in your games.

Revitalize your downloaded music and movies
Restore the details and vibrancy your music and movies lost during compression. X-Fi technology intelligently enhances the highs and lows so you'll hear it all - crisp cymbal crashes, wailing guitar solos, screeching tires and booming explosions.

Surround sound from your stereo music and movies
Expand your stereo music and movies into surround sound. Voices are centered in front of you. Ambient sound appears all around you... just like a live performance. Listen on a pair of desktop speakers or a full 5.1 speaker system.

Headphone surround that sounds like multichannel speakers
Slip on your headphones and X-Fi CMSS-3D technology moves the sound away from your ears and into the space around you. You'll feel like you're sitting with your favorite band or in the best seat in the movie theater. Games sound better too with positional audio that's so accurate you can locate enemies by sound.

Get realistic sound effects in your games
Bullets whiz past your head. Explosions shake the room. Take your games to the next level with EAX ADVANCED HD sound effects.

And if you're using Windows Vista, Creative ALchemy restores surround sound for the same great gaming experience.

Cinematic surround sound from DVD movies
Watch your DVDs in cinematic surround sound with PowerDVD software featuring DTS and Dolby Digital EX decoding (free download with purchase). Plus send Dolby pass-thru audio directly to your home theater receiver using the optical output.
