For the nine months, the company's net sales were $78,325,000 compared with $93,284,000 a year ago. Loss before income tax was $30,703,000 compared with $18,326,000 a year ago.

Creative Technology Ltd Launches Sound Blaster Roar 2

Creative Technology Ltd. launched Sound Blaster Roar 2, a portable Bluetooth wireless speaker. The all new Sound Blaster Roar 2 portable Bluetooth wireless speaker retains the same 5 speaker drivers, electrical design, and battery life as the Classic Sound Blaster Roar - but is now 20% smaller and 10% lighter. And it is available in black or white. Encased in a stylish sleek housing that exudes the understated sophistication of a well-designed audio instrument, the smaller-lighter-sexier Sound Blaster Roar 2 continues to impress, whether it is used at the office, in a designer home, or at a party. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 also comes with two all new features not found on the original Sound Blaster Roar: Increased flexibility with additional placement and acoustic options and Beautifully machine-finished pulsating passive bass radiators. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 features an integrated MicroSD WMA and MP3 player that allows users to play audio directly from a MicroSD card, so users do not need to always commit their smartphone to play music. The player even allows users to skip music folders so that they can navigate to their songs faster without having to tediously cycle through all their individual tracks. With its built-in high quality microphone providing for clear 360° voice pickup, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is able to take calls when connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 features an Integrated Voice Recorder that utilises the speaker's built-in microphone, allowing for versatile one-touch recording of all kinds of audio - calls, external voices, or streamed music - directly to an insertable MicroSD card. The feature is ideal for recording voice memos, lectures, interviews, teleconferencing sessions, and business/corporate meetings. The speaker is able to connect wirelessly via Bluetooth, and utilises the aptX and AAC codecs for the high quality audio and lowest possible latency. The sound booklet also features the latest Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology, allowing users to quickly and easily connect to Bluetooth devices, requiring only a simple tap from an NFC-enabled smart device to the speaker to pair and establish a connection. Users can also connect two Bluetooth devices to the Sound Blaster Roar 2 simultaneously. In Bedtime Mode, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 gradually reduces its volume before automatically shutting down. The feature allows users to be gently and gradually lulled to sleep, and at the same time preserves the speaker's battery by turning it off after a predetermined time, instead of leaving it switched on for the whole night. Parents of young children would also appreciate the feature - they can record themselves reading out a bedtime story, and play the recording back to their children as they are falling asleep. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 is not just a wireless speaker for smart devices. Users can connect it to their PCs or Macs via USB to enjoy clear digital audio for their desktops or laptops. Connecting the speaker via USB enables advanced PC audio processing via the downloadable software, Sound Blaster Control Panel, and full access to the SBX Pro Studio suite of technologies that intelligently enhance audio in real time. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 also features a Dual Purpose Battery. The large, built-in 6,000 mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery can be used to charge smartphones and tablets, beyond providing up to 8 hours of audio playback.
