This looks like a very functional bundle as the CL guys tossed in some cables to get you up and running quickly. Creative seemed to cover all the bases allowing connections for whatever the end user might have. Let’s take a closer look at the base card…
ZXR Base Card
The ZXR base card sports a slick looking EMI/RFI shield, giving the card a very modern look while serving the purpose of noise rejection and protection for sensitive components from clumsy fingers.
For I/O, the base card offers ¼” TRS jacks for both microphone input and headphone output. We also have industry standard RCA connectors for the front left and right channels. The Rear left/right channels and the Center/Subwoofer channels use 3.5mm/ 1/8” mini Jack connections.
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.

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?
