You know, times really have changed haven't they? The digital revolution has been so big and fast that it sometimes astonishes me. Take for example the MP3 revolution, I mean... when I was young (sigh) we had a walkman. A portable cassette player. It was followed shortly by the portable CD player, MD player, DAT player and then MP3 CD players. Yet the thing with all of the devices I just mentioned are that they are sensitive to bumps/movement and they are heavy to carry around. Not exactly the best for jogging around with, huh? Another revolution is the one of flash memory. Over the past 2 years we've seen capacity grow and prices drop.
The industry is clever, you take two popular technologies, combine them and unleash it on the market. Today's product belongs in that category, it's the MUVO TX from Creative Labs. With the help of a USB interface (2.0 compatible), flash memory and a wide range of playback options, this is one of the more popular portable music players around and today we'll have a peek at it.
The MUVO weighs in with one AAA battery at 31 grams. The MUVO, ladies and gentlemen, is close to being a storage device, also a voice recorder and hey... you know what? It can also playback music in MP3 and WMA format. It's equipped with fast USB 2.0 port and has a nice little LCD that you can use to select music or, for example, change the 5 band graphical equalizer.
Let me introduce by photo, the MUVO TX armed with 256 MB flash memory a device that ca do so much that it's weird to see it in your hands and realize exactly that.

So 7.1 surround sound, do we really need to invest in it ? Ehm, no ... But I can tell you it does make a very nice difference over the traditional 5.1 setup for sure. I'll explain all that on this multi purpose speaker set later on when I will talk a little about my game/movie/music experiences in combination with the GigaWorks S750's.

In December something big was released by Creative labs. And the fun thing is .. almost all of you missed it didn't you? Really silently Creative Labs pushed forward a new soundcard under the label Audigy 4 You'd expect a big marketing campaign with bells and whistles and preferably gorgeous blonde women jumping up and down with the soundcard ... but that did not happen.
