Creative SOUND BLASTER X-Fi Surround 5.1 (Retail)
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 very own personal concert. Watch DVDs or downloaded videos in full cinematic surround sound. Plus, you can also experience 3D audio and EAX effects in your games.
Revitalize your downloaded music and movies
Restore the detail and vibrancy lost in your music and movies during compression. X-Fi technology intelligently enhances the highs and lows, letting you hear all the 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 stellar surround sound. Voices are centered in front of you. Ambient sound appears all around you... just like in a live performance. Take it all in from a pair of desktop speakers or a full 5.1 speaker system.
Headphone surround that sounds like multi-channel speakers
Slip on your headphones and let the X-Fi CMSS-3D technology move the sound away from your ears 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 through mere sound.

Bullets whizzing past your head. Explosions virtually shaking 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.
