Creative X3 Hi-Res 7.1 SXFI USB DAC and Amplifier Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
The box looks really nice, with a clear photo of the X3 right on the front, as well as a few key features detailed around the bottom of the box; SXFI, Scout Mode, SBX, etc.
Around the back, things are monumentally boring, just technical information and multi-language stuff. Albeit, this is a pretty technical product, so they’ve got to cram that information in somewhere.
On the interior, you’ll find the amp comes very nicely protected by multiple cardboard layers and spacers. Plus, there’s a large foam ring on the box to keep the control wheel protected too.
Everything is wrapped in a protective plastic layer. Plus, those little flaps are sticking up on the sides, allowing me to cleanly and safely lift it out of the box.
In the bottom of the box, you’ll find a few bits of documentation, all the usual stuff really.
There’s only a single cable included, which is a USB Type-A to USB Type-C to power the device and use it for USB audio. It’s as simple as plug and play, which is great!
