Creative Announces Premium Range of 2.0 Stereo Speakers Featuring Innovative Technology, Premium Components and Audiophile Designs

GigaWorks® HD50 Lets Users Experience the Power of Ultra High-Fidelity Audio in a Compact Form Factor

SINGAPORE - November 6, 2007 - Creative Technology Ltd., a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, today announced a premium range of 2.0 stereo speakers featuring innovative technology, premium components and compact designs. Backed by engineering breakthroughs such as BasXPort™ technology and use of premium components which give truly outstanding bass without the need of a subwoofer, making these speakers smaller and more powerful than previously possible. Leading the premium range is the new innovative micro speaker system, Creative GigaWorks® HD50. Encompassing audiophile-grade drivers and components, Creative GigaWorks HD50 offers the ultimate in audio clarity.

Creative GigaWorks HD50's titanium super tweeters harness ultra high-frequency capability for smooth and soothing playback while Creative high-definition drivers of a mere two-inch diameter encompass high-excursion capability to deliver outstanding bass in a small footprint. Highly efficient and powerful Class-D amplifiers that are separately dedicated and matched to the tweeters and drivers also give improved headroom and loudness.

Complete with built-in BasXPort technology, Creative GigaWorks HD50 is acoustically engineered and designed to channel sound waves to flow from the inner chamber of the speaker to the soundstage, allowing the speaker to deliver a more pronounced bass for a warmer natural playback.

With such powerful components and revolutionary technology, the result is uncompromised playback with incredibly smooth highs and accurate, natural lows. Standing at only 14.1cm, Creative GigaWorks HD50 offers the best of both worlds - a small form factor that packs awesome audio, both in power and detail, and the space afforded by the compact speaker system. Perfect for music listeners who enjoy supreme quality sound without the bulk!

The Creative premium range of speaker systems also offers Creative GigaWorks T40. Creative GigaWorks T40 boasts an MTM audiophile driver configuration which improves the overall sonic spectral balance with enhanced bass extension, enabling full range playback and giving music that sounds fuller, warmer and more faithful to the original. Its woven glass fibre cone drivers deliver outstanding vocal reproduction and incredibly natural, accurate lower frequency response while the cloth dome tweeters produce clear, accurate and crystal clear highs. The cloth design also provides better resistance to humidity and temperature changes.

The newest 2.0 introduction to the Creative Inspire family of speaker systems, the Creative Inspire® T10 brings high-quality playback to MP3 music. Creative Inspire T10 has a two-way design for a perfectly balanced audio performance with just the right levels of highs and mid-range. Its dedicated tweeters deliver clear and soothing highs while the robust three-inch woofer drivers produce outstanding midrange performance and bass extension. Offering high-quality sound with tremendous value, Creative Inspire T10 is great for music listeners who enjoy good quality music playback at affordable prices!
