Creative introduced the Sound BlasterX G6 this week, which will be the latest flagship addition to the Sound BlasterX G-series of Gaming Amps and USB Sound Cards. Designed to be compatible across a multitude of platforms, the Sound BlasterX G6 is a high-resolution gaming DAC amp and USB sound card capable of 32-bit/384kHz PCM and DoP playback. The device offers an upgrade from default audio for PS4, PC, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch, which is perfect for everything from gaming to streaming.

The custom-designed Xamp discrete headphone amp utilizes bi-amplification technology to power each channel separately, delivering an enhanced level of audio fidelity with superior clarity and accuracy in an unaltered lossless model. The ultra-low 1 Ohm output impedance drives performance-grade sensitive 16 Ohm in-ear monitors and professional gaming headsets, as well as studio-grade 600 Ohm headphones. It features Dolby Digital decoding, 7.1 virtual surround sound, sidetone-speaker volume control, and Sound Blaster’s own sound enhancement technologies.

“It’s time to breathe new life into your games with the Sound BlasterX G6 Gaming DAC Amp and USB Sound Card. The Sound BlasterX G6 takes experiencing today’s audio-rich gaming content on consoles and PCs to whole new levels of breathtaking playback. With its custom-tuned award-winning Xamp headphone amp and ability to support 7.1 surround, together with its audiophile-grade components and specs, the Sound BlasterX G6 personifies the absolute best performance when it comes to external gaming DACs and USB Sound Cards,” said Low Long Chye, General Manager of Creative.

“We noticed a lot of our fans actually purchased the earlier G5 for PlayStation 4 and other consoles—which was a departure from its traditional usage with PCs. As more and more people discover the value of great audio outside of the world of the PC, we wanted to offer another option with even better performance and components.”

Designed to work cross-platform, the Sound BlasterX G6 utilizes an optical connection for PS4 and Xbox, USB connection for PC, and a line-in for Nintendo Switch. Additionally, the Sound BlasterX G6 also works in Nintendo Switch USB Dock mode, so you won’t have to buy a separate model. The advanced 32-bit oversampled multi-bit modulator with mismatch shaping technology eliminates distortion, ensuring audio is streamed with the highest level of detail and fidelity. There is also Support for Hi-Res Audio Formats, including High-resolution 32-bit 384kHz PCM and DoP audio formats and the device offers gaming-specific features such as Dolby Digital decoding and Sidetone volume control.

The Sound BlasterX G6 is already available online, you can find it here on Amazon.
