Sound Blaster XFi Notebook

Creative has unveiled its latest Sound Blaster product, the X-Fi Notebook ExpressCard. The X-Fi up-samples MP3 playback to 24-bit, 48kHz output. "CMSS-3D" processing is designed to recreate surround sound effects when used with headphones. EAX Advanced HD format is supported for gaming sound effects, or Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround formats, while using PowerDVD software for movies.

The X-Fi Notebook is compatible with Creative wireless receivers, allowing signal transmission across the room or through walls. Recording and playback both use a 24-bit/48kHz signal. Users must be running Windows Vista or XP SP2 and have a free ExpressCard slot. The Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook is available from Creative for $90 and includes earphones with a built in microphone.
