[Creative] DTS & DDL Complete Pack Available for X-Fi

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Right this is my first news post, so do tell me if I got anything wrong.

The release of this pack coincides very nicely with the release of their new drivers which have finally come out of the beta phase. I had a feeling this would follow very shortly.

As the title suggests, DTS Connect and Dolby Digital Live! are now available for purchase as an add-on pack for any existing X-Fi soundcard (except the Extreme Audio I'm afraid) which is ideal for anybody connecting their speakers to their PC via a S/PDIF connection. This means anybody for example who owns a Logitech Z5500 system or any other 5.1 surround sound receiver system, many now have their audio encoded into either a DTS or Dolby bitstream before being fired out the speakers.

A nice touch on Creative's part is they included DTS: NeoPC with the pack.
This is essentially a replacement for Creative's own CMSS-3D technology which upmixes 2 channel audio (your mp3 collection) into 5.1 audio.
Obviously this pack is useless to those of you who do not own a digital speaker system or the appropriate connections on your soundcard, (or an X-Fi...) but for those who are interested, the pack is available for a very reasonable $4.72 (£3.18 or €3.40 for those of you who are concerned) as they have to pay to license the technologies.

Anybody who bought the Dolby Digital Live! pack previously gets the upgrade to the complete pack for free.
This is great as it means people with existing X-Fi cards get the feature set of the Auzentech X-Fi for very little.

Hi,
You mentioned that it is for all the X-Fi except one of it. So I would like to know whether it is compatible with the CREATIVE SB X-Fi Surround 5.1?

This is mainly because that Creative said it is not compatible.

THanks

Too bad when I bought My X-FI it came with all this already, until they decided they wanted to charge me for it on Vista.....a-holes.

No, we did pay for it, all those that bought X-Fi's before Vista came out had dolby included in the software for XP, it was part of having an X-Fi, it says on the box that that is a feature, but when the Vista drivers came out they took it out and now they want to charge us for it. This is why there was a huge controversy when DanielK came out with his modified drivers that gave Vista users this ability back.

Dolby Digital Live is not the same as Dolby Decoding... DDL was never an advertised feature of the early X-Fi.

Umm, I think it's for PCI and PCIe X-Fi cards only.
