Creative Xmod Wireless

30 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Creative is a little late to the wireless music-streaming party, but the company comes with a gift its competitors can’t match: the X-Fi Crystalizer technology lifted from its X-Fi soundcard line. The Xmod Wireless base station captures your PC’s audio stream and transmits it to a remote receiver.
  • Pros: Great sound quality at a great price. Stylish
  • Cons: No display on remote or receiver; no independent streaming; can't stream Internet radio.

  • Excerpt: Being audio purists, we typically piss on products that sit in the midst of an audio stream and manipulate what the artist intended to create.

Creative’s 24-bit Crystalizer converts an incoming audio signal to 24-bit resolution with a sampling rate of 96kHz.
  • Pros: The 24-bit crystalizer helps audio sound more...real.
  • Cons: Only certain songs end up sounding like trash

  • Conclusion: Xmod is an interesting accessory for a notebook, which can replace the integrated audio in convenience and audio quality. Good large digital volume control, separate outputs for headphones and speakers, built-in effects that can be disabled. Cons: no hardware support for 3D audio in games, you have to buy a power adapter for the autonomous mode, the price is rather high for our market (MSRP $80), we could buy a sterling sound card with converters of higher quality with...

Review: Creative Xmod

Tech Digest

  • Excerpt: The Xmod is Creative’s first external sound card to implement X-Fi technology. X-Fi has been securing Creative’s leading position in the sound card market for a long time thanks to its excellent sound quality enhancing functions. The Xmod offers a similar feature set to full blown X-Fi cards, incorporating CMSS 3D and Crystalizer technologies to enhance the quality of your sound output in ways an internal sound card can only dream of.
