Review: Creative Labs Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar


It's been quite a while since we've had a Sound Blaster branded audio product in our setup. In fact, the last Sound Blaster product we used was one of Creative's Audigy sound cards in a white-box PC before computers came with competent onboard audio. Today, we're looking at a wildly different product from Creative — the Sound Blaster Katana desktop sound bar. Sound bars are usually built for home theater use; we don't see many designed for the desktop because space in front of your monitor is likely at more of a premium than the space under your TV. The Katana works, though — it's about as wide as a typical desktop monitor and shallow enough not to eat up too much desk space.{/exp:char_limit}
