Boost your desktop's audio performance with a sound card from one of the premier names in computer audio—Creative Labs. The Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum sound card is designed to enhance your system's music, movie, and gaming experience. The card’s 24-bit Crystalizer makes game audio more dynamic and realistic and improves both low and high frequencies, giving you smoother, cleaner sound.
The card's audio processor with Creative's CMSS-3D technology is able to remix your stereo audio into surround sound—even through stereo headphones. And if you enjoy making music as much as listening to it, the Platinum offers precise, low-latency audio recording capabilities without taxing your CPU.
The Crystalizer and CMSS-3D technology also team together to let you "SuperRip" your CDs, boosting the fidelity of your ripped audio above that of low-quality MP3 files. For enjoying your favorite DVDs, the card is THX certified and can handle decoding DTS-ES and Dolby Digital EX duties. Plus, the 5.25-inch I/O Drive gives you access to inputs and outputs from the front of your computer and the bundled remote turns your computer into a full entertainment center.
