Luxury Insider

"A demonstration of Creative's X-Fi Crystalizer and X-Fi Expand technology (it restores the highs and lows of music typically lost during compression to the MP3 format) at the Screening Room in Singapore was suitably impressive as the difference in the quality of sound was immediately apparent."




"All in all, we were impressed with the ZEN X-Fi. For such a compact portable media player, its audio quality is impeccable and truly class-leading. X-Fi technology is a real gem."




"AS PMP's go, this is by far one of the most feature-rich players around now, with a wider array of supported formats and greater functionality than the iconic iPod. 16GB and 32GB versions of the ZEN X-Fi are also on the cards with support for Wi-Fi connectivity on the cards in the latter. All in all this is one Cool PMP that towers above the rest, notwithstanding its diminutive size."
