Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD review -
Package and Bundle
We are fans of great packaging as at the end of the day we are enthusiasts and we also get excited when we see nice shiny new products all sparkly in their respective packages. The Titanium HDs packaging has been changed in comparison to previous X-Fi packaging.
Creative Labs wants you to see this new offering and get you reaching for your wallet. The cards casing is also transparent so you can see some of the high end components used on the card. We will admit this is some great looking PC hardware .but we are interested in how it sounds arent we?
Lets rip open the new offering and see what is in the box for the end user to play with.
The Titanium HD bundle includes
- CL Titanium HD PCI-E Soundcard
- Driver CD
- Quick Start Guide
- RCA to 3.5 mm cable
- 2 X Mini Toslink to Toslink Cable
Well a modest bundle but enough to get your new high definition soundcard connected to anything you might have on your desk or in your home theater system. The inclusion of two optical cables and the dual RCA to 3.5 mini-jack is also a nice touch in the bundle.
The SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium HD. This card has many aspects in common with existing X-FI designs and a few new features and modifications to appeal to the newer crop of demanding soundcards enthusiasts.
Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCIe
Bordering on false advertisement, Creative's latest X-Fi isn't an X-Fi at all, it's a new rev of the Audigy series using the X-Fi drivers and gliding on the PCI Express bus. The EAX gaming enhancements are gone, however, in favor of the more usable Crystallizer and CMSS3D functions. The X-Audio does provide a good value with decent performance, stability, and last but not least, is does sound good.
X-Fi Xtreme Music Sound Blaster review
Creative's entry level X-Fi turns out to be pretty killer. All new hardware, all new software, makes this thing all the better. Gone are the old annoyances of the Audigy series, replaced by the X-Fi, which isn't very annoying at all!
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Pro
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.
