Creative ships entry-level Digital Music LX and Ectiva 5.1 sound cards

Creative Japan launched local shipments of two new inexpensive sound cards, namely the external Sound Blaster Digital Music LX USB and internal Ectiva 5.1 PCI. Both novelties are expected in local retail stores early in April. As Creative traditionally makes initial product introductions in Japan, we should expect them worldwide within a month.


The simple and inexpensive ($45 in Japan) external Sound Blaster Digital Music LX works under Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP, has USB1.1, headphones interface, RCA and S/PDIF (AC3/DTS support) outputs, stereo RCA input. The board is bundled with sound software. Sized 119x69x26mm, Sound Blaster Digital Music weighs 116g.


Very inexpensive ($20 in Japan) 5.1-channel Creative Ectiva 5.1 PCI card works under Windows 98 SE/Me/2000/XP, supports DirectSound and EAX, features analog 5.1-channel output and is claimed to have 90dB SNR.
