Towards the end of the presentation we had question time, during which of course we did just that.
Firstly, we touched on the matter of not using a dedicated tweeter. According to Creative the added expense versus performance of using a dedicated tweeter that would require a crossover network also; this was not a viable option.
Secondly, we enquired about the ability to use these systems as a 'phone dock' of sorts with a built-in mic. To which Creative informed us that these were musical systems of the highest integrity that have no desire, nor time for such frivolity.
...and we agreed.
Prices are expected to range from a couple of hundred up to $370 AUD for the top of the line D5.
Expect to see them on store shelves around mid August of 2010.
TweakTown is already signed up to receive demo units once they are ready. So stay tuned for our full coverage on these new systems then.
We would also like to thank Creative Labs for the invitation to this latest product launch.
