Creative Announces Creative Professional E-MU PM5 Precision Monitor Speaker System

Professional Quality Studio Near-Field Monitoring Speaker For Desktop Professional And Home Studio Musicians

SINGAPORE - August 15, 2006 - Creative Technology Ltd. (NASDAQ: CREAF), a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products for PC users, today announced the Creative Professional E-MU PM5 Precision Monitor Speaker System. Designed from ground up, the E-MU PM5 Precision Monitor speaker features a custom-made audiophile amplifier (Class-A input and MOSFET output stages), world class drivers and components to deliver superior imaging and hi-end transient detail with linear frequency response that rivals compact near-field monitor speakers that are available at more than twice the price.

Ideal for studio recording engineers yet affordable enough for hobbyists, the E-MU PM5 Precision Monitor speaker comes packed with professional features like overload protection, balanced/unbalanced inputs and treble, bass and input sensitivity controls that ensures the speaker will seamlessly integrate into any studio environment.

"Every time a signal passes through an electrical circuit, it degrades in quality. The best amplifier is a wire with amplifying ability, which is impossible. Thus, in designing the PM Series amplifier, I made the circuit topology of the amplifier as simple as possible and I believe I have succeeded." said Jun Makino, legendary amplifier design Maestro, who is famous for the revolutionary FECT used in the "Pristine" brand of dual monoaural power amplifiers and the "Nagisa" line of high-end audiophile grade active speakers.

Pricing and Availability
The Creative Professional E-MU PM5 Precision Monitor speaker system is now available at an estimated street price of US$249.99 (S$449.00) in most countries.
