The Launch Party - Continued


We were then given a very thorough demonstration of how the new D5x sounded when paired with the new DSx subwoofer as opposed to the original D5 we heard on its own last year. And at this point we were very pleased with how much of an improvement this little sub makes. What's particularly interesting is that this little sub uses an active crossover with the main speaker unit, meaning that once the sub is detected by the speaker, then the crossover is locked into 120Hz so that frequencies above that get a boost, because the extra work can be handled by the sub.




Following on from the demonstration, we were given a question and answer session in which we asked about how a 5.1 build up of these speakers would work and sound. The answer we got was that a 5.1 configuration was possible; however, the foot note is that it will only ever receive a stereo signal. So the effect will be akin to something like Dolby Pro Logic, which also works from a stereo signal only.




We also dug a little deeper into how this new sub works and we found that it's a SLAM design which means Symmetrically Loaded Acoustic Module and it uses three 6.5" drivers all in the single unit - This we have not ever seen before, let alone tested, so we certainly are looking forward to getting two D5x's and a DSx together for testing!




Following the question times, there was a competition held in which one lucky media person got a brand new product to take home which any one of us would have enjoyed very much.




Overall, though, Creative Labs do a great job with explaining complex things through the use of many diagrams and images, which makes life easy for us all and certainly raised excitement about just what has been happening over at Creative Labs HQ.
