Creative Introduces Xmod - First External X-Fi Based Device

Creative announced that it has invented the Creative Xmod, a device based upon its X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity audio platform. The Creative Xmod is a small device just about the size of a candy bar. It connects between stereo speakers or headphones and either a PC, Mac, iPod, ZEN or any MP3 player, and, according to the press release, improves the listening experience by upconverting the music during playback to the X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity standard - 24-bit surround audio.

The Creative Xmod enhances the low and high frequencies while improving audio dynamics for cleaner, richer sound that surpasses the original audio CD. For connecting iPod, ZEN or any MP3 players to the Creative Xmod, an optional AC power adaptor is required.

X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity provides two audio functions, X-Fi Crystalizer and X-Fi CMSS-3D. The X-Fi Crystalizer upconverts MP3 music by analyzing and identifying which parts of the audio stream have been truncated or damaged during compression. X-Fi CMSS-3D creates virtual surround sound through speakers or headphones.

The Creative Xmod will be available in October at a suggested retail price of US$79.99.
