Creative launch Z600, Z500 and TravelSound speaker systems for Zen range

Creative has launched a range of new docking speakers for its range of MP3 players.

There are three speakers including the Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600, Creative PlayDock Z500 and the Creative TravelSound ZEN V docking speakers.

The Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600 is designed to be used with the company's ZEN Vision: M player. The two wall-mountable satellite speakers and a compact subwoofer with a large 8-inch long throw driver promise to fill the room with dynamic bass and crystal clear sound. Through an audio/video out, users can now pipe their media content stored on their MP3 player to any external TV.

The Creative PlayDock Z500 comes with a high-gloss finish and contoured design and supports the Creative ZEN Vision:M and Creative ZEN V/ZEN V Plus players. Like the Z600 photos and videos stored on the Creative ZEN Vision:M can also be shared and viewed on the big screen using the audio/video out connection for audio and video files.

Finally Creative has launched the Creative TravelSound ZEN V, allowing users to listen to their music and charge their players at the same time. Powered with either four AA batteries which allow up to 25 hours of extended music playback, or with the bundled universal power adapter.

Starting 24 November 2006, the Creative X-Fi Sound System Z600 will be available at a suggested retail price of US$399.00 and the Creative TravelSound ZEN V for US$129.00. The Creative PlayDock Z500 will be available in December for US$199.00.
