When used with multichannel speakers, you'll be able to hear exactly where the audio cues are--even between speakers. Voices will be right in front of you and ambient sound will surround you, just like a live performance. CMSS-3D works with both desktop stereo speakers and full surround speaker systems.
X-Fi Crystalizer Restores Lost Details
X-Fi-Crystalizer technology restores the audio detail that is lost in compressed audio files so you'll regain vibrancy and clarity in your music and movies. The technology restores the highs and lows that are often lost due to compression, so whether you're listening to cymbal crashes or wailing guitars, you'll hear the music as it was meant to be heard.
