Creative Launches New Docking Speaker Systems

Creative today announced a new range of high-fidelity speaker systems with the Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600, Creative PlayDock Z500 and the Creative TravelSound ZEN V docking speakers.

The stylish Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600 is integrated with the X-Fi technology that brings MP3 music to the X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity standard. The compact design of the Creative PlayDock Z500 and Creative TravelSound ZEN V docking speakers makes them conducive for travel or any outdoor activities.

The Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600 allows users to dock, charge and playback music content in their Creative ZEN Vision: M player simultaneously. The X-Fi audio technology integrated into the speaker system features the 24-bit Crystalizer and CMSS-3D technologies.

There are two wall-mountable satellite speakers and a compact subwoofer with a large 8" long throw driver. An infra-red remote control allows users to navigate the key player functions for the Creative ZEN Vision:M and speaker functions for the Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600.

The Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600 also supports an extensive array of consumer devices including TVs, DVD and CD players. Through an audio/video out, users can now pipe their media content stored on their MP3 player to any external TV.

Creative also introduced the stylish Creative PlayDock Z500 portable speaker system for portable media players. It is designed as a docking speaker for the Creative ZEN Vision:M and Creative ZEN V/ZEN V Plus players. Users can charge the player while listening to music or ZENcasts. The speaker system uses high-performance drivers to create a balanced listening experience and accurate reproduction of music. Its Creative Wide Stereo Effect feature produces improved stereo sound imaging, thus creating a big soundstage. In addition, it comes with a built-in subwoofer with bass control for accurate bass response. Being magnetically shielded, the Creative PlayDock Z500 can be placed near any TV or computer monitor without causing any interference.

The digital amplifier allows the speaker system to be more efficient and have a longer battery life. Being dual-powered, users can have the option of using either eight C-size batteries which allow 16 hours of continuous music playback on the go, or the bundled universal power adapter depending on their preference. This durable speaker system even has a built-in handle for convenient transportation as well as a built-in telescopic antenna to obtain clear FM reception when paired with the Creative ZEN Vision:M or Creative ZEN V Plus players.

This solution also offers the included IR Remote.

Creative introduced the Creative TravelSound ZEN V as a portable high-fidelity docking speaker that is designed exclusively for the Creative ZEN V and Creative ZEN V Plus players. It allows users to listen to their music and charge their players at the same time. Data and music files can also be transferred to the player while the player is docked on the speaker.

The speakers feature four full-range NeoTitanium microdrivers and offer the Creative Wide Stereo Effect.

The Creative TravelSound ZEN V can be powered with either four AA batteries which allow up to 25 hours of extended music playback, or with the bundled universal power adapter.

Starting 24 November 2006, the Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600 will be available at a suggested retail price of S$599.00 (or US$399.00) and the Creative TravelSound ZEN V for S$199.00 (or US$129.00). The Creative PlayDock Z500 will be available in December for S$299.00 (or US$199.00).
