PRESS RELEASE: Creative Technology Ltd. introduced the Creative Inspire S2 speaker system, positioned at the top of the Creative Inspire line of speaker systems. Building on the Creative Inspire tradition of merging high performance and value, this compact yet powerful speaker system is perfect for users who want a dynamic audio system to complement their notebooks, MP3 players or desktops. The Creative Inspire S2 speaker system successfully combines great sound and innovative technology into a surprisingly compact package that into even small spaces. Each satellite speaker is just slightly larger than the size of a tennis ball, yet delivers full-bodied audio uncommon in speakers of this size and class. Miniaturisation while maintaining performance is a key feature of the Creative Inspire S2 speaker system, and the highly efficient Creative DIRECT-THROW subwoofer delivers dynamic mid-bass while taking up little room.

Completely new, the Creative DIRECT-THROW subwoofer is designed to permit most of the usable bass energy from the subwoofer to reach the listener in an efficient manner. When placed to face the room, its key advantage is that the directional mid-bass accurately reaches the listener, while the rear slotted port tube delivers the deepest non-directional bass notes to fill the room. This translates to faster delivery of music with deeper impact. Another key benefit is experienced when the subwoofer is placed close to wall boundaries – common in desktop applications – and the unique front driver/rear-firing port tube design utilises acoustic boundary coupling to greatly increase the bass output, allowing a much louder than expected bass from such a compact speaker.

By employing such efficient techniques for optimal bass reproduction, the Creative Inspire S2 speaker system sets itself apart from other subwoofers of similar size and class, which can struggle to generate a powerful but clean bass. A convenient control knob on the Creative Inspire S2 subwoofer allows the bass level to be easily adjusted to suit personal preferences or room conditions.

In addition, the Creative Inspire S2 speaker system comes with dual inputs conveniently located on the satellite speaker: a Line-In input for connecting to notebooks or desktops, and a gain-adjusted AUX-In input for connecting to low-powered handheld music devices. A Headphone-Out connection caters to private listening. Combining these convenient features together with innovative audio technology and a small footprint certainly makes the Creative Inspire S2 speaker system a perfect companion for notebooks, MP3 players or desktops.
