October 3 - Creative Xmod

The Creative Xmod promises many things. One of which being the ability to increase your MP3s sound quality to 'Beyond that of the original CD's quality. We're so confident that it will even be more effective than studio quality.' Sounds great. We'll believe it when we see it. Although we're a big fan of Creative, especially their X-Fi equipment, they have been know to over-market things and make extortionate claims. The X-Ram incident on their X-Fi Fatal1ty (Yes, him again!) Sound Card and their X-Fi Pro cards has not been proven to help in games performance at all, even if it does provide great bragging rights. The Xmod, even if it turns out not to work all that well, still looks fancy and all you have to do is place it in-between your MP3 and your speakers. The size of a candy bar, the Xmod is emblazened with three nice blue LEDs that display various things. In the box, you'll receive the standard manual, the Xmod itself, earphones and a USB cable, via which the Xmod draws it's power. Compatible with both Apple and Windows, not matter which OS you use your MP3s won't suffer. The central dial controls most of the functions, colume mainly, and on the side a Crystalizer switch can be found. On the bottom of the Xmod there are two standard 3.5mm jacks, one for headphones (as you'd expect) so that you can have 'Better than Studio Content direct in your ears.' I think that the general assumption here is that if you ask Crative no questions, they won't be forced to lie. Still, I'm looking forward to a hands-on experience with the Xmod, because if it's as great as it sounds, we're in for a treat.
