|The Creative Xmod USB is a sound device that can turn MP3ís into a personal concert like quality music or make the sound of movies with the quality virtual surround sound over stereo speakers or headphones. The Creative Xmod is equipped with X-Fi technology which is the new audio standard from Creative. The X-Fi Crystallizers restores the details and vibrance of the sound from MP3ís and movies by identifying the audio elements that have been restricted/damaged or lost during compression and selectively re-masters them. It features the X-Fi CMSS-3D that converts the contents of basic stereo into multi-channel to bring amazing virtual surround over two speakers or headphones. Virtual surround sound can be enjoyed through stereo speakers. With the Creative Xmod, voices from MP3 music and movie sounds are centered in front of the listener as if listening to a live performance. Listening to MP3 music or movie sounds using headphones, the X-Fi CMSS-3D delivers a sound quality just like being surrounded by multiple virtual speakers. Creative Xmod can even be possibly used as the Default device in Sound and Audio Devices in the Windows Control Panel.
It does not require drivers or software to install the Xmod because it is 100 percent plug-and-play and works with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Mac OS X systems. Xmod can be readily connected to a notebook, PC or Mac. Also, all of its features are adjustable on the device itself. The X-Fi Crystallizer and CMSS-3D audio features of the Creative Xmod can be easily toggled using simple on/off buttons. Switching between making Crystallizer, CMSS-3D and volume adjustments can be made by depressing the top half of the unit. At the center of device is a large silver knob which can be used to make adjustments or to control the intensity of the effects and volume.
