SINGAPORE - 16 April 2020 - Creative Technology has boosted its PC gaming audio range with the release of Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus, an improved version of the original Sound BlasterX AE-5 with more surround sound enhancements that is set to not only meet, but surpass the expectations of PC gaming enthusiasts.
The celebrated Sound BlasterX AE-5 was a double CES 2018 Innovation Awards honoree in ‘Computer Hardware and Components' and ‘Computer Accessories'. Backed up with Sound Blaster's long legacy of audio processing technology such as the award-winning Xamp discrete headphone bi-amplifier, and powered by a 122 dB 32-bit / 384 kHz ESS SABRE32 Ultra-class DAC, it was the also world's first sound card with an integrated RGB controller and already a stand-out gaming fan favorite in its own right.
Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus, where aesthetics meets performance.
Now, with support for Dolby Digital Live and Connect encoding, Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus provides more delivery options to external audio devices, for an even more enhanced gaming experience than before. Together with the existing AE-5, it has also been updated with the latest Sound Blaster Command software, which features a user-friendly interface. Topping off with an attractive price tag, it presents irresistible value for PC gaming enthusiasts.
