Creative unveils Xmod

Creative has unveiled its new Xmod adapter, a device offering USB connectivity that converts audio up to a 24-bit signal before it reaches speakers. The adapter uses a proprietary crystalizer to analyze compression artifacts and repair lost audio quality, according to Creative. The Xmod is also capable of applying virtual surround sound to stereo sources, according to Electronista. The adapter requires no driver software installation, enabling users of Mac OS X Panther systems or later to simply plug the device into their computers and speakers. The Xmod plugs into portable media players such as Apple's iPod or Microsoft's Zune via a special AC adapter, and is slated for shipment late this month for $80.
