What The Critics are Saying about the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Card

"To say we were blown away doesn't do justice to how impressed we were with the audio this card pumped out."
--Joel Durham Jr, Maximum PC, April 2011

High-Fidelity Components Deliver Pristine Sound

The X-Fi Titanium HD offers a significant improvement over a standard motherboard's onboard audio. The card delivers a signal-to-noise ratio of 122 dB, which ensures that audio playback is pure and distortion-free. The card's components make a particular difference when playing music: high and mid tones are reproduced with pitch-perfect detail, and lows are defined and tight.

Outfitted with audio-enhancing technologies, the Titanium HD features THX's TruStudio Pro technology, which helps preserve the original balance and timbre of film audio. The card also supports Dolby Digital and DTS decoding formats, giving it multichannel and surround sound capabilities.

Swappable Op-Amps for Customizable Audio

The Titanium HD features fully customizable components--the card's op-amps are swappable, meaning that they can be switched and tweaked to fit your desires. This allows you to adjust sound coloration and personalize your listening experience. Audiophiles will be able to create a sound profile to fit tonal preferences.

EAX 5.0 Enhances Gaming Audio and Performance

The Titanium HD has been specially engineered to handle gaming applications. Using hardware-accelerated EAX 5.0 technology, the sound card delivers crisp, deep audio that will fully immerse you in the game.

In addition to enriching your gaming audio, the Titanium HD will boost your PC's gaming performance as a whole. By functioning as a dedicated sound unit, the card frees up resources that would otherwise be tied up in audio processes. This allows your PC to dedicate more of its processing power towards other tasks, like graphical and AI processing. The result is a gaming experience free of hiccups and slowdowns.

Supports Wide Range of I/O Connectivity

Built for versatility, the Titanium HD supports connections to a variety of devices. It features ports that can accommodate microphones, headphones, home studio speakers, portable music players, AV Receivers, game consoles, and more.

The sound card is designed for solid headphone performance: the card supports up to 115 dB and 24-bit/96 kHz output, allowing for high-definition headphone playback. Microphone recordings are noteworthy, too, thanks to the card's latency-reducing ASIO technology.

After reading several positive web reviews of this card, I decided to purchase it and see how it compares to my current ASUS Xonar Essence ST Headphone 7.1-Channel Audio Card for Audiophiles. (It should be noted that the Xonar Essence ST is a PCI card that I believe is out of production, but still available for purchase. It has been replaced by the ASUS Xonar Essence STX Virtual 7.1 Channels PCI Express Interface 124 dB SNR / Headphone AMP Card which, like the Titanium HD, is PCI-E based.) Both cards are advertised as geared towards "audiophiles" and manufactured with high-end components. They are designed to primarily support headphones and/or analog stereo 2.0/2.1 speakers. They do not come standard with analog outputs for 5.1/7.1 speakers, but do support multi-channel digital output via optical TOSLINK. The Xonar Essence ST also supports digital output via a coaxial connection and an optional Xonar HDav Multi-ch Extension card to provide analog output supporting up to 7.1 channels is available. Both cards include built-in headphone amps, but the one in the Xonar Essence ST/STX is more robust. The SoundBlaster Titanium HD employs the venerable X-Fi chipset and supports all versions of creative's EAX feature - if you do a lot of PC gaming, this card may be your best option. The Xonar Essence ST does provide good surround sound support via Dolby ProLogic IIx and limited EAX support via DirectSound 3D game extensions.Read more ›

Just got this a few hours ago and am loving it. I've only tested it with the Westone 3 earphones. The bass is incredible as is the rest of the soundstage. Finally my pc sounds better than my iAudio 7 player! Before I was always astonished that the built-in sound on Acer PCs and Clevo laptops were not as good as the iAudio. The installation of the SB card was easy once I figured how to get the damn expansion slot panel off from the back of my Acer. The SB card is not positioned perfectly in the back but it is plugged in to the short PCIe slot and works. I made sure to remove the existing drivers before using the setup disk to install the drivers and software without a hitch on my Windows 7 64-bit system. In the future I will get some long RCA cables (maybe toslink as well)and connect them to my Pioneer receiver.

**11/30/10**
Just got a 35ft dual plug M/M RCA cable and hooked up the line outs to a Pioneer Elite receiver. Turns out you have to unplug the headphone plug directly at the headphone jack (on the SB card) in order for the line out jacks to output a signal. That was a bummer. Nonetheless, the sound coming from the 5.1 speaker setup is finally room shaking.

**12/11/10**
Finally got a 35 ft Toslink cable with a Toslink Mini Adapter to connect to the "optical in" of the Titanium HD card. This will allow me to switch between the faraway A/V receiver and my nearby earphones without having to unplug anything in the back. So I am no longer using the dual RCA plugs. Sound is automatically encoded with Dolby Digital Live but one can change to DTS Connect as well. My receiver shows that it is receiving a Dolby Digital signal! Note that the only way to control the digital sound volume is through whatever program you are using for music (e.g.

This card is one of the best to play back your digital music from your computer through a receiver and nice speakers. Headphone listening is also well executed. This is by far the best sound card Creative has ever made for music playback. The DAC (Digital to Analog converter) on this card is high quality and is the same DAC (Burr-Brown PCM1794) used in some very expensive and high end CD players (Cary Audio Design CD 306 and Halcro EC800). Be sure to use the analog RCA outputs to see the benefit. Of course this is good for games too but music playback is where this card really shines. If you just play games then the previous versions of X-fi cards should be enough for you. If high quality music playback is important to you get this card. Creative obviously needed to up the ante to create something that people would want to buy if they already own an X-fi card and they did it here.

The card was easy to install. I have a sound bar connected to a Denon receiver and Difinity subwoofer. For audio, I was using the Realtek soundcard built-in to my motherboard. The sound was okay, but I knew that it could be a little better. After reading many reviews on sound cards, I narrowed the field to the Creative Labs X-fi Titanium HD and the Asus Xonar Essence STX. Both cards are loaded with high-end components. I chose the Titanium HD because it was on sale last week (not quite Cyber Monday, but a deal is a deal) and I do not regret the purchase.

Installing the card took about 15 minutes. I searched the Internet to find out if there are any installation pitfalls before opening the box and my search took most of the time. STEPS: Shutoff the computer, unplug the computer, open the computer case, insert the card into a slot, close the computer, plug in the computer, turn on the computer, install the software from the CD that came with the card, connect to the Internet and use the Creative Labs Auto-update program that installs from the CD and play a movie or music that you've played on your computer before.

Dr. Who suddenly had crystal-clear footsteps as he ran down the hallway, Star Wars the Old Republic (beta tester) suddenly roared to life. I could clearly hear the difference between walking on stone versus squishing through mud. Suddenly my sound bar and subwoofer really came to life and my little loft man-cave rumbled with the power of my audio equipment. I got tingles realizing that I really had gotten a good deal on my speakers. My movies, music and games sound a thousand times (sorry engineers) better! I am wowed every time I played something and realized how much I had been settling for mediocre audio.
