Creative SX-FI

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this? I bought the SX-FI Amp to try. Sure sounds weird at the beginning but as your brain adapts to it, it doesn't sound too bad. However it doesn't seem to work well on all recordings. I noticed some women's voices sound too shrill on it. BTW I used it with the Aurvana Trio.

I wonder if the sound shaping DSP is always on, full strength, or can it be turned down to a mnimum?

The DSP can be turned on or off on the SX-FI but there is no control on the magnitude of the effect unless I miss the option on the phone app. I used it on my PC.

That's what I expect for most of these apps. I got a 512 gb iphone so I store all my music as WAV on the phone (and my ipad), and that works for most listening and testing with my budget DACs.
