So, How Did They Sound Then?
Above, the three systems were set up on a single table upfront for our demonstration. After our initial briefing it was time for a demonstration of the three new wireless models on offer from Creative, come mid august.
On face value it was fair to expect to be greeted with the trademark thin hollow tone produced by a lot of plastic based speaker enclosures out there. However, the results were impressive! - Let me say outright that the D5 is comparable to real wood based Hi-Fi speakers in the departments of timbre and tonality.
We were also very impressed by how the small D5 managed to fill the Hilton's rather large conference room with mellow warm sounding music. There was no hint of a boom box-like assault on the senses within sight.
The way that Creative has used their own construction methods and hand picked codecs along with up to 15 design revisions to produce such a polished line of wireless speakers is a notable achievement, to be sure.
