Geek Review: Creative SXFI Carrier Soundbar

Immersion is undoubtedly a core element of the movie-watching and gaming experience, with both visuals and audio working together to create the ultimate enjoyment. For local tech company Creative, the SXFI Carrier Soundbar acts as the versatile, compact alternative to bulky surround sound set-ups.

The world’s first Dolby Atmos Speaker System (DASS) soundbar with Creative’s proprietary SXFI holography audio technology, it offers the makings of a high-end multi-speaker system, and recreates the spatial soundscape that Dolby Atmos is most known for. The device is fine-tuned to pick up the smallest of details with great clarity and crispness, from music scores and spoken dialogue to off-screen effects in games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Where stereo music is concerned, the SXFI Carrier maintains its position as a natural entertainer with the combination of punchy bass and rich instrumentals that carry no distortion. Despite its smaller form factor, the soundbar is also a reliable all-rounder that presents every frequency in their full capacity. Reinforcing its versatility is the inclusion of several handy features, such as a seven-port connectivity option, Bluetooth 5.0 support, and an accompany wireless subwoofer.
