X-Fi 24-bit Crystalizer enhances MP3s and movies to sound better than they do on their original CD or DVD.
Utilizing the Creative X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity audio processor your music and movie audio is sent through a two-step quality enhancement process. First the processor converts the audio into 24-bit/96kHz quality using its virtually transparent SRC (Sample Rate Converter) engine. Then it remasters and selectively enhances the audio by analyzing and identifying which parts of the audio stream have been restricted/damaged during the compression stages to 16-bit and then to MP3.
Music Benefits: Low and high frequencies are enhanced while the dynamics are improved. Overall your music will sound cleaner, smoother and will sparkle!
