The most portable Sound Blaster, this USB solution is only about the size of a thumb drive so users can easily take it with them to experience THX TruStudio Pro audio technology at home or on the go. Features include:
THX TruStudio Pro includes:
THX TruStudio Pro Surround provides immersion control to enhance the natural sense of audio depth and spaciousness by creating virtual surround sound channels. Stereo content or multi-channel content played over stereo speakers and headphones will sound as if it is coming from all sides while voices remain centred in front and original balance and timbre is preserved.
THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer restores the natural dynamic range that is lost when iTunes and MP3 music gets compressed. This makes the music sound as good as the artist originally intended, and adds an enhanced level of realism for movies and games.
THX TruStudio Pro Speaker fills in the missing low frequency tones and gives the extra impact for a better entertainment experience. Consumers no longer have to tolerate lack of bass in speakers built into notebook PCs, 2.0 speakers or headphones, as THX TruStudio Pro Speaker technology dramatically improves the sound experience without a subwoofer.
THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus enhances the voices in movies for clearer dialogue, allowing the listener to hear the dialogue over the rest of the soundtrack and over ambient noise in the listening environment.
THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume addresses the problem of abrupt volume level changes during playback and between songs by automatically and continuously measuring volume, and intelligently applying gain and attenuation to compensate for those changes.
The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro and the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! Pro will be available from mid December 2010 onwards at The CREATIVE Stores at International Business Park and Marina Square, online store at sg.store.creative.com and authorised dealers in Singapore at the suggested retail prices of S$89.00 and S$79.00 respectively.
