Design and workmanship
Besides picture quality and screen size, sound quality is also becoming increasingly important in the entertainment segment. After all, a powerful sound provides the necessary feeling of being in the middle of the action when gaming or enjoying a classic movie. However, if you want to ensure a massive sound, you usually can’t avoid large-format speakers. With a little willingness to compromise, you can save yourself the trouble of buying huge speakers. Soundbars are the solution. The same can now be found in more and more TV, but also gaming setups. This is mainly due to the fact that many of the devices offer the perfect compromise between space requirements and sound quality.
With the Sound Blaster Katana V2 from Creative, we would like to take a closer look at a custom gaming soundbar today. As the successor to the Sound BlasterX Katana, the new edition aims to address criticisms of its predecessor. Whether it can really keep the promises of a better sound and expanded compatibility, we see or hear in our test. Creative shows itself to be highly generous in the scope of delivery of its gaming soundbar. In addition to the Sound Blaster Katana V2, the subwoofer is also included in the attractive packaging.
