24-bit Sound Blaster Audio Processor

The Sound Blaster X7 features the SB-Axx1™ multi-core Digital Signal Processor (DSP) which is capable of voice processing, audio restoration, proprietary effects processing and is also a certified Dolby Digital 5.1 decoder.

It has a special patented EMU32 bus capable of processing up to 32 concurrent audio streams. This allows the X7 to handle multiple audio inputs and outputs.

In addition, a proprietary audio chip helps the Sound Blaster X7 achieve audiophile-grade audio playback from stereo to 5.1 configurations at up to 24-bit 192kHz.

Ultra High Fidelity Digital Audio Superhighway

Just as HDTV allows you to see more details in your movies and TV shows, high-resolution audio allows you to hear more details and nuances during audio playback, be it games, movies or music.

The Sound Blaster X7 provides a smooth digital audio superhighway that preserves audio fidelity starting from the original uncompressed audio file on your PC/Mac; through a high-speed USB 2.0 digital audio path, to a high-resolution 24-bit 192kHz 127dB DAC, immediately coupled to a powerful 100W built-in amplifier.

Finally, the journey ends at your favourite passive speakers, bringing to you an unadulterated, high-quality audio experience.
Features Captivating & Adrenaline-Pumping Games
The Sound Blaster X7's built-in SB-Axx1™ multi-core DSP reproduces the incredibly detailed audio created alongside the immensely compelling graphics and expansive environments found in today’s popular gaming titles, such as Battlefield 4, Titanfall and Skyrim.

With massive connectivity options, gamers on PCs, laptops, game consoles, tablets, and smartphones can now benefit from these enhancement technologies. On top of that, you can enjoy an audiophile experience with the finest top-notch components found in the Sound Blaster X7. Upgrading to the external Sound Blaster X7 is a breeze – just plug and play!

Paired with a tablet running the Sound Blaster Central mobile app, you get quick and easy control to settings such as Scout Mode™, VoiceFX and CrystalVoice™ during gameplay, on a separate screen!

The X7 is your “Sorcerer’s Stone”, make it a mission to bag it.

Immersive & Explosive Movies

Users today have easy access to HD and Ultra HD movies through download and streaming sites such as Netflix. These services have upped the ante of users’ expectations of the visual quality, but they are often let down by subpar audio from their TVs.

Connect the Sound Blaster X7 to your existing sound systems and enjoy the full suite of Sound Blaster processing that brings TV and movie audio to a whole new level of detail and realism.

SBX Crystalizer emphasizes subtle audio details; SBX Bass enhances low frequency audio for impactful explosions in fast-paced action movies; SBX Smart Volume intelligently minimizes abrupt volume changes during playback and between commercials. Enjoy a cinematic audio experience via the built-in Dolby Digital decoder that delivers powerful 5.1 discrete channels of high-quality surround sound.

Mellifluous and Beyond Pristine Music

Music studios have been recording in high-resolution before delivering the songs to you as CDs or digital downloads. Today's consumers are getting increasingly demanding in their desire to experience higher quality audio playback. In response, the music studios are also making such high-resolution audio tracks more accessible to discerning listeners.

The Sound Blaster X7 features a 127dB DAC capable of delivering audio tracks up to 24-bit 192kHz without any loss in fidelity. Along with top-notch, audiophile-grade components, the Sound Blaster X7 allows you to enjoy such lossless, high-resolution music the way it was recorded in the studio, whether they are stored on your PC, Mac, tablets or smart phones.

Knock Out quality 127dB DAC

The Sound Blaster X7 features a Burr-Brown PCM1794 127dB digital-to-analog converter (DAC) which supports high-resolution audio playback of up to 24-bit 192kHz when connected to PC/Mac, including 24-bit 88.2kHz and 24-bit 176.4kHz. Coupled with a built-in Dolby Digital decoder, the Sound Blaster X7 lets you experience cinematic true-to-life 5.1 channel playback.

In addition, the Sound Blaster features a Burr-Brown PCM4220 123dB analog-to-digital converter (ADC) which delivers high quality, low noise analog line-in audio playback and audio recording of up to 24-bit 192kHz.

Top Notch Audiophile-Grade Components

To create the best audio experience, efforts were not spared in the selection of the finest audiophile grade components to complement our renowned in-house audiotechnologies. The Sound Blaster X7 incorporates superior class Nichicon “Fine Gold” capacitors to achieve a rich sound in the bass register and clearer highs.

And not only that, the Sound Blaster X7 is amazingly customizable — it features the option to swap op-amps. Op-amps play an essential role in amplifying the delicate analog signals and also influences the overall audio texture. Users may have their preferences for a certain tonal characteristic. With the Sound Blaster X7, you can easily swap the op-amps (available separately) to define your music's tonal characteristics to your heart's content.

Kickass 100W Stereo Amplifier

A high power, high efficiency Class-D digital amplifier TPA3116D2 delivers up to 100W power (2 x 50W @ 4?*), allowing you to connect to passive bookshelf or tower speakers. The Sound Blaster X7 features an impedance switch to select between 4? and 8? to match your speakers to deliver the best audio performance.

Class-leading Headphone Amplifier
To provide an outstanding headphone listening experience, a top-of-the-range Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 headphone amplifier chip is used. Capable of driving high-end 600? headphones, the Sound Blaster X7 — together with its 127dB 24-bit 192kHz DAC — delivers powerful and pristine audio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing D.A.C I was torn between this and the asus xonar essence one.I play a lot of games as well as listen to all types of music from hard rock to classical to jazz to electro & dance.I must say i was a little doubtful if this would be the best bet for me.I set it up with my corsair 2500 speaker system and I must admit it does sound so much better than my on board sound (By the way is an asus rampage extreme v) and that has fairly good audio. It takes a little while for the software to download from the creative site but once you have it and plug the x7 in its straightforward to do.The other thing I was dubious about was if it was going to override all the audio from my motherboard,so if I didn't want to use it for some reason I would simply plug my speakers back in a it would work as if it hadn't been there in the first place,and yep no problem. Obviously I read a lot of reviews before parting with my hard earned cash and a few of them said if you have the cash to hand and want a desk top solution that sounds amazing with headphones and speakers (all being dependent on what you pair it with ) you cant go wrong with this And, I actually agree with that. You can change out the op amps if its not quite dialled in to your liking but mine was fine for me and to software was easy and intuitive to use and get the sound just right for me. In summery for me, it was the best solution for computer set up and the cherry on top for my system. Thanks for a very fast and efficient delivery from scan. 28 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'd buy it again Great sound quality through my HD650's, got it hooked up to my iMac for iTunes and video duties. Can't think of a better solution for using proper headphones, plus with the option to use bookshelf speakers in the future (when the babies grow up and move out). 16 March 2015
