LAS VEGAS - 8 January 2018 - Creative Technology Ltd today announced that it would be showcasing the award-winning X-Fi Sonic Carrier at CES 2018. The Sonic Carrier, which has received rave reviews worldwide by industry insiders when it was previewed prior to launch, has now begun shipping in the United States. CES 2018 will be a wonderful opportunity for those wishing to experience this phenomenal audio for themselves.
The Sonic Carrier which personifies the Audio of Tomorrow is a powerful home entertainment system with 17 drivers in a 15.2 configuration and 1000W RMS power that works out-of-the-box to deliver a fuss-free powerful audio solution, giving the added edge over more complex solutions with multiple discrete speakers and messy wiring that cost many times more.
Prior to CES 2018, the Sonic Carrier was awarded the Best of CEDIA 2017 Award by AVS Forum, the world's largest AV-enthusiast forum site, where it was dubbed ‘soundbar of the gods':
My mind was completely blownߪ If somebody asks me to name the best soundbar I've ever heard, I will no longer have any reason to hesitate. I'll simply say, ‘Without any question, it's the X-Fi Sonic Carrier from Creativeߪ' The quality of the holographic surround-sound the Creative X-Fi Sonic Carrier puts out is something I have not heard before from any soundbar. Oh, and the subwoofer. Wow. - Mark Henninger, Senior Editor, AVS Forum
Here is what other reviewers and industry insiders are saying about the Sonic Carrier:
My lord, it was incredible. The Sonic Carrier was able to fill Creative's booth on the busy show floor (in an open exhibition hall at E3) with full, rich sound with the aid of the company's proprietary SuperWide X-Fi tech that can give even compressed stereo sources a panoramic-like soundstage. But more impressively, surround sounds like a bird's song or its fluttering wings felt like they were happening behind and above me. - Jeff Grubb, Reporter at GamesBeat, VentureBeat.com
The demonstration of the Creative Sonic Carrier was a genuine revelation, the likes of which I haven't experienced in ages. It excelled as both a room-filling home theatre system and as an impressive implementation of Dolby Atmos® technology. Hard to believe that it was just the one box, plus subs. - Chris Chiarella, noted audio/video journalist
