Creative Announces the New Creative X-Fi Sonic Carrier
Creative Technology announced that d it would be deploying its ultimate weapon of mass entertainment – X-Fi Sonic Carrier – into the gaming arena at E3 2017.
The Sonic Carrier, a powerful home entertainment system with Dolby Atmos, Creative SuperWide X-Fi, 17 drivers in a 15.2 configuration, and 2000W peak power (1000W RMS), is set to blow gamers away with the ultimate immersive cinematic sound. Besides being showcased at the Creative E3 booth, the Sonic Carrier will be used by major game developers BANDAI NAMCO, SEGA Europe, ATLUS/SEGA and Deep Silver to show-off their very latest immersive gaming content at their E3 booths.
Powered by eight processors, the Sonic Carrier is not only capable of high resolution audio playback, it also features an Ultra HD video engine that supports 4K 60fps video playback of local and online content.
Featuring three distinct wireless technologies, the Sonic Carrier offers two separate Wi-Fi® solutions for audio and video streaming, Bluetooth, and a zero latency wireless speaker-to-speaker link to up to four subwoofers.
Creative also states that imagine a world where games and movies come alive with the most immersive 3D audio experience with the latest Dolby Atmos technology used in premium cinemas, now brought straight to the users home – only better. Movies and games will never be same again with cinematic audio that not only flows around users, but also above them.
In the other world, music listening is transformed into a magical auditory experience. This is the 15.2 world of super wide extreme fidelity, called SuperWide X-Fi. In this realm, every audio stream regardless of quality is algorithmically metamorphosized to an eXtreme Fidelity level of 24-bit hi-res audio and expanded three dimensionally into a 15.2 super wide soundstage.
One would expect all these wizardries to come from a convoluted array of expensive systems. Instead, it is a beautiful sleek one piece system, sans messy cables. Together with an exquisite wireless subwoofer akin to designer furniture, the Sonic Carrier is truly a masterpiece of art.
Touting their SuperWide X-Fi Stereo, Creative says this is a radical new audio technology that elevates the auditory journey to a totally different dimension. When SuperWide X-Fi touches any common stereo source it transports the listener to a magical three dimensional audio utopia that transcends a traditional left-right stereo experience. Gaming audio can be scaled up to this ultimate SuperWide X-Fi experience.
Oh, and if you want to know how much this beast is, Creatives website states that it is $5,799 (USD). That is a HUGE price, but who knows, lets see how it sounds in LA next week.
