FEATURES

A wireless system as versatile as you are

The first step towards audio greatness

Start simple with a single ZiiSound D5x speaker which works perfectly right out of the box - an audiophile-grade speaker in its own right.

It all adds up

Add additional ZiiSound D5x units1 for an enhanced listening experience, a ZiiSound DSx subwoofer for added bass, or everything in one fell swoop - all at your own pace. Linking the ZiiSound DSx subwoofer wirelessly can be done in a matter of seconds. Click here to see how to do so with this illustrated step-by-step guide.

Ultimate flexibility

Your speaker configuration doesn't need to remain fixed forever. Power a house party with a maxed-out 3.1 system; but for day-to-day music listening, just reconfigure it into smaller standalone systems which you can place anywhere and rearrange anytime

Multi-channel sound

The "Multi-channel" mode expands the soundscape and provides for a realistic-sounding movie experience, complete with all the explosions and more. Learn how to add a second ZiiSound D5x unit to get distinct left and right audio channels here.

Let’s get the party started!

Fill your house with perfectly synchronized music in the aptly-named "Party" mode. Up to three ZiiSound D5x speakers can blast the same song in unison, in different rooms2! Throw in a ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer for enhanced bass and your party is underway. Learn how simple it is to switch from "Multi-channel" to "Party" mode.

Get the best of both worlds

High-performance wireless audio

Pair with any compatible stereo Bluetooth device

Striking accuracy and detail in your music

The aptX™ audio codec provides you with superior Bluetooth stereo audio when you stream from aptX enabled devices.

Wirelessly stream music from any compatible stereo Bluetooth device, such as your mobile phone or notebook, from a range of up to 10 meters from the speakers. Let us show you how simple it is to pair the ZiiSound D5x with the ZEN Style M300 Bluetooth MP3 player in this demo.

High-performance, precision-tuned full range drivers with efficient digital amplifiers in the ZiiSound D5x speaker deliver a complete audiophile experience like no other.

Wireless audio for your computer

Versatile connectivity options

Don't panic even if your computer doesn't have stereo Bluetooth built-in. Give it wireless audio streaming capabilities, with the Creative BT-D1 Bluetooth USB transmitter (sold separately). It pairs with the ZiiSound D5x in mere seconds and also works with other Creative wireless speakers.

While it works seamlessly with wireless Bluetooth devices, the speaker system also allows for a wired connection via its AUX-in port for other portable devices, like MP3 players.

Control at your fingertips

Simply plug the included Creative BT-D5 Bluetooth transmitter into your iPhone or 30-pin iPod³ to give it Bluetooth and aptX capabilities for pristine music playback. You can also easily charge your iPhone or iPod while it's playing

Glide your fingers along the ZiiSound D5x's touch-sensitive volume controls and set your desired volume level.

Sleek one-piece chassis

With its neat contemporary design, encased in a matte black mesh cloth, the ZiiSound D5x provides the perfect balance of design and performance while enhancing your living room or desktop.

1 Please note that ZiiSound D5x can only be linked with up to two additional ZiiSound D5x units and one ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer. The ZiiSound D5x cannot be linked with ZiiSound D3x, and vice-versa.
2 At a distance of up to 30 meters, measured in open space.
3 The BT-D5 is compatible with iPod touch (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation), iPod classic (this refers to the 6th generation iPod or later), iPod nano (3rd, 4th 5th and 6th generation - iPod nano 5th generation's radio feature not supported), iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

    A good wireless system; enjoyably musical, and good to use with an iPod remotely.

  • Macworld

    As an all-round package, I'm impressed with the Creative ZiiSound D5x. Many traditional iPod speakers lack quality or are dependent on a cheap remote for control. The D5x side-steps this problem neatly, making the connected iPod entirely wireless. The use of the transmitter system could be fraught with problems, but it works nicely. The sound quality is great too, making this a perfect solution for those with small apartments or who want to connect more than one unit.

    Lift your device off, though, and a little dongle comes with it that connects your device over Bluetooth to the D5x. So, you're now streaming music wirelessly to a set of speakers that are themselves connected wirelessly. We're in the future now... Without the DSx, one or more D5x's still sounds good; the sub just adds real punch to the low end.

    The result was an amazing sound, with the only wires being present being connections to the mains... There was no interference and I'd never have known the connection was via Bluetooth - although that's probably a lot to do with the use of apt-X..this is a brilliant sound system, particularly with the DSx sub-woofer.

    The audio quality was certainly impressive, both on vocals and intrumental tracks.

    On its own, the D5x dishes out more volume than I dare to ask from it and reasonable quality at the low end.
