The Creative D5xm Signature Series is the first smart modular wireless speaker that performs room calibration with a little help from the Creative Central mobile app!

Making all this a cinch is Creative Central, a free and downloadable app that is designed to work with the Creative D5xm.

You can power a house party or enjoy theatre-like movies with a 3.1 system1, or for day-to-day music listening, just reconfigure it into smaller standalone systems which you can place anywhere and rearrange anytime!
The 'Multi-channel' mode expands the soundscape and offers a more realistic and immersive movie and music listening experience. You can now enjoy movies and music as if you're in the cinema or concert hall, right in the comfort of your own home!

5 out of 5
This is going to be a short review. I hope that I can help some people in deciding. First off. the sound is magnificent ( to my ears ). It's full and easy on the ears. I added the Dsxm for extra bass. To be clear, does the D5xm need it? No, the bar has some substantial bass by itself, but if you do add a Dsxm I can tel you will get that extra punch/vibration trough the whole room. I myself use it as a PC speaker and I had to figure some things out. I use a 3.5 cable to get the sound trough. ( not a fan of Bluetooth for music). The only problem I had is that the speaker did not turn on together with the PC. The way to fix this is to connect the D5xm with any Bluetooth dongle to your PC but not use this to stream the music. Because the speaker is connected it will go out of sleep mode the moment the PC turns on. To finish things, will it work on my TV? I would not recommend it. I have the impression it was not made for it. no HDMI, no optical... at the end of the day for me its a phenomenal system, sounds great ,looks great, love it.
After initial set-up, connected with my Sony Xperia Tablet, I played some music, and I must say, I'm absolutely impressed with this speaker module. It's a brilliant speaker, I'm so very happy with my purchase, and would recommend this speaker to all, who were thinking about purchasing it.
