Creative Labs SoundBlaster ZXR Review -
Package and Bundle
This package would surely catch your attention while checking out your local PC shops. Both sides of the packaging are filled with specifications, logos and audio technologies.
The base card and ACM module are easily seen through the packaging. Just enough to get your attention and make you want to know what is inside the box.
The side window is a cool design as you can see both cards I/O headers and have the explanations of everything right below. This is excellent for those unsure of what they need or what the card offers. Given the flashed out packaging and box specifications, we can see many quickly reaching for their wallets and gleefully running home like a kid with a big bag of candy! Let’s tear into this and see what we get for the price point.
We review the Creative Labs SoundBlaster ZXR. Creative Labs has been a powerhouse force in the world of PC audio ever since there was such a concept as PC audio.
