"Creative's Sound Blaster Xtreme Fidelity (X-Fi) audio processor is truly a
revolution in PC audio. Whether you use headphones, two speakers or
multi-channel speakers, your games, movies and music will all be enhanced.
Add to this the 109dB SNR audio quality (or 116dB SNR for Sound Blaster X-Fi
Elite Pro reviewed here), plus the 136dB SNR internal audio processing
quality and THX Certification with the THX Setup Console, and it becomes
clear that Creative is on to a winner with the most advanced and priciest
Sound Blaster to date."
