Cre­ative X-Fi Sonic Car­rier

THIS 11.2.4-CHAN­NEL DOLBY AT­MOS SOUND­BAR IS OUT OF OUR LEAGUE. US$5,800 | us.cre­ative.com

TechLife Australia - - SUPER GUIDE -

YOU KNOW, IT just didn’t feel fair com­par­ing the Cre­ative X-Fi Sonic Car­rier to other soundbars on this list. It’d be like com­par­ing jet-skis to yachts.

That be­ing said, if you have the deep pock­ets to af­ford it, the Cre­ative X-Fi Sonic Car­rier is in a dif­fer­ent league of soundbars. It fea­tures 17 speak­ers set in an 11.2.4-chan­nel or 15.2-chan­nel con­fig­u­ra­tion that can put out well over 110 dB of sound and sup­ports Dolby At­mos right out of the box.

Is nearly US$6,000 too much to spend on a sound­bar – even one as gen­uinely awe­some as the Cre­ative X-Fi Sonic Car­rier? Prob­a­bly. But is a few grand worth spend­ing to turn your base­ment or garage into a club / near-cin­ema-qual­ity home theater? Yeah. It is.
