Creative today announced that its THX TruStudio Pro audio technology is featured on the MSI GT680, the planet's fastest notebook which was unveiled earlier this month at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. THX TruStudio Pro is also featured on the latest models from MSI’s F-Series and G-Series notebooks and selected models of their All-in-One PCs. With the inclusion of THX TruStudio Pro, the new MSI models are capable of delivering cinema-like premium sound and accurate reproduction of any type of music or soundtrack. Creative and MSI worked closely to create the ultimate multimedia experience on notebooks and All-in-One PCs, bringing the same great audio experience found in live performances, films and recording studios to the PC.
The MSI G-Series of gaming laptops were designed to meet the needs of the most demanding gamers, and put in record-shattering performances that greatly impressed visitors at CES 2011. The MSI GT680 performed on average three times faster than other high-end gaming laptops currently on the market, while boasting THX TruStudio Pro audio technology that grants gamers the vital weapon of high-grade surround sound, shattering the stereotype that laptops cannot offer a decent sound experience. The new generation MSI F-Series laptops represent the ultimate blend of performance, art and fashion, guaranteeing a virtual audiovisual feast with their powerful hardware and world-class sound technology boosted by THX TruStudio Pro.
The THX TruStudio Pro suite of audio technologies features THX TruStudio Pro Surround, THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer, THX TruStudio Pro Speaker, THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus and THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume.
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.
