As a leader in audio innovation, you can trust Philips to make PC sound systems of the highest sound quality. Coaxial Digital Audio SPDIF Coaxial digital audio connection. Digital sound quality Audio is transferred as a digital signal and only at the last minute is it converted to an analog signal. This reduces the amount of interference on the signal and results in playback that is true to the original recording. EAX 2.0 and A3D 1.0 support PC games often contain 3D sound that is positioned in space using various standards. EAX and A3D are so called API's that translate the sounds used in a game into 3 dimensional sound to ensure an immersive gaming experience. External source DSP processing Enables use of the soundcard functionality for external sources such as TV's or hi-fi systems and turns e.g. a normal TV programme into an enveloping 5.1 channel surround experience. Home audio quality on the PC Philips has used over 75 years experience at the leading edge of audio to create PC audio products with the same performance as our award-winning home audio systems. MP3 Energy Boost When CD's are ripped to MP3, some of the dynamics are lost due to compression. MP3 Energy Boost dynamically analyses MP3 and WMA files and adds frequencies that were lost during compression. The result: more defined and realistic MP3's that are closer to the original CD track. Music, games, films, internet All types of music, games, films and internet audio sources can be played, so no matter what you want to hear, we make your multimedia experiences sound more involving than ever. QMSS QMSS turns all stereo sources to convincing multichannel surround, meaning that all games, music and movies can be heard in multi-channel surround sound, and not just in regular stereo.
