What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar
  • Solid heavy construction. Looks very neat. Highly recommend.
  • The build quality is amazing, it fits perfectly under my iMac 27, allowing me to get rid of the big chunky speakers I had before and freeing up a lot of space on my desk.
  • If like me you’re after a sound bar that will make your desk look tidier with compact size soundbar right under monitor, its perfect choice.
  • This really is an impressive soundbar, well built and designed. Looks amazing on my desk.
  • Well built, customisable led and sound settings. Pretty light and small, and looks amazing under the monitor.
Logitech G560 PC Gaming Ultra Surround Sound Speakers
  • It’s a good size system though and could be placed around the TV without affecting the decorations. The Subwoofer is big and powerful.
  • The speakers are a good compact size, though fairly weighty which conveys a sense of quality.
  • Fairly simple to use once set up. Great sound quality for any small/medium size room.
  • Don't be fooled by the size of these, they pack a real punch, worth every penny spent.
  • Remote feels a bit 'cheap' and the speakers bracket mount holes are a strange size.

What customers say about "Audio"
Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar
  • Awesome sound. Far too powerful for my office (I rarely push it past volume 14 and it goes up to 50).
  • I found the sound quality improved considerably when it was in a room sufficient to bounce the sound around.
  • Impressive bass as it has plenty of punch where it matters, and can be turned down/disabled.
  • Nice rich sound from sub, plenty of detail, good mid range.
  • Holds its sound quality at high volume. The unit doing a great job.
Logitech G560 PC Gaming Ultra Surround Sound Speakers
  • The subwoofer is very dominating and sound is bass heavy.
  • Simply just wow. Powerful, clean and crisp sound out of this unit.
  • The sound is crystal clear, the immersion when playing games or watching 5.1 channel movies is awesome!
  • The sound quality is excellent! For Movies, TV, Gaming and Music, the sound is sublime and rich.
  • I do not understand why people are raving about the supposedly awesome sound quality.

What customers say about "Features"
Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar
  • Lots of audio connection options if needed. Made a huge quality difference to my PC gaming / cinema experience.
  • Lighting is beautiful at night. Downloaded software is interesting and adds a lot of functionality.
  • The software for changing the sound is good you can tune your sound to how you like it not hard to understand nice interface with some nice presets.
  • Lights don't sync with sound and can get a bit distracting though they can be turned off.
  • Remote control quality is so different to the rest of the system. It's the stock credit card size junk.
Logitech G560 PC Gaming Ultra Surround Sound Speakers
  • The fact you can tune in individual speakers and the subwoofer to different levels is a brilliant feature!
  • The lighsync features are excellent and I always use screen sampling which is very immersive.
  • However the bass is amazing, and the lights are a very nice feature.
  • The remote control is also an excelent feature enabling you to make changes to the volume etc from across the room.
  • There is no auto-selection of input, which would be a great feature and a star lost for its absence.
