The latest addition to the vendor’s line of speakers is its first 7.1 PC system and incorporates a two-way design. It is meant for use with a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS sound card but can also be used with 5.1 or 6.1 cards. A tweeter and mid-range driver in the three front speakers create balance between highs and mids. Side satellite speakers offer smoother pans and greater accuracy in the latest EAX or Microsoft DirectSound 3D games that are unavailable in 5.1 systems. Also included is a subwoofer with a 6.5-inch long-throw driver and a dual flared port tube as well as an Audio Control Pod with integrated M-Port for streaming with compatible audio players. The Inspire T7700 will be available from Creative next month.
