The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro USB sound card is an external sound card that converts integrated laptop sound output into a 5.1-channel setup. Intended to replace native motherboard audio, the card features THX's TruStudio Pro technology, which enhances audio depth and improves bass response. DTS and Dolby Digital Recording codecs can be added with a free software download to enhance movie sound, as well. RCA and optical audio out are featured on the side, as are headphone and microphone jacks. Installation is straightforward. The  unit itself is housed in a compact case and has a mounted control knob to adjust volume.
