With many connectivity ports and a small design, I can see why it will be such an attractive product for consumers. The device has a number of connectivity ports, including a Optical Line In and Optical Line Out, USB and micro USB ports. On the front of the device, there are dedicated microphone and headphone jacks, as well as a stylish volume control dial. Along the side of the devices are the toggle switches for Scout Mode, SBX, and the gain level – from low to high. Packaged with the devices is a USB to mirco-USB cable, and optical cable, and the customary paperwork that comes along with these products. One of the more beneficial items in the box – and this goes for most Creative speaker products – is the handy flow chart for how to hook your device up in various set-up situations! The device supports 5.1 and 7.1 natively, which is huge for this price point! Using the Device. After following the easy setup guide, I was all ready to try out the Sound BlasterX G5 device, and from my early tests, there is a marketed difference between using my computer’s built in sound card, and using this device.
