I've owned the SB X Katana for over 21 months, and have used it everyday, its more than a soundbar speaker, it's a complete sound system (sound card) built within a speaker. The sound is quality high, it's clean, clear, crisp, in both the treble and bass ranges. The speaker system excels at being a versatile speaker for you tv, game console, bluetooth smart phone/tablet, headphones(not a headphone amp) and also works at a higher level on a PC computer as an external usb sound device with clean sound similar to an external sound Dac/Amp with internal sound card processing built in this speaker with added software to control to fine tune sound options , and to also note all the sound presets work without being connected to a PC in the other connectivity options. I currently have it setup connected to 4 devices at once tv, console, pc, and bluetooh smartphone. The speaker comes with a remote control to control all the settings independently and swap connectivity settings, and to change sound and or RBG presets. The Speakers are loud enough with the sub woofer to fill a small to med size room in a house, and possiblity of a large room dependent on your listening perfernce to your sound on a quieter level than loud for a large room. It also does a good job simulatioin of 5.1 surround sound and beats any built in tv speakers and most tv soundbars hands down by a country mile! Cheap soundbars and tv speakers are really no comparisons to the high end quality sound of this speaker sound system! RGB lights are icing on the cake and you can change colors setup and make custom settings and use preset strobing and effects, and by the way my lights have been blinking strong over 21 months plus! This is my independent non paid reveiw of this great product.

Awesome sound and the software Creative has with it really changes it depending on what you set it for. If you're watching movies and you need to hear the dialogue over the booms, it has a setting for that. If you want to hear the whole range of music while you're doing something else there's a setting for that too. And as others have said... it can get really loud. Most of the time I have the setting at 8 (registers as 14% on the PC).

I've been very pleased with the sound quality. The software was a little awkward to figure out at first, but it gets the job done and has a fair amount of customization. The bass on the sub is incredible for something that small!

Never a Sound Blaster/Creative fan. Needed something to sit on the desk that didn't take up a ton of space and still sounded good. Surprisingly this little guy sounds good. Been playing Far Cry 5 on it and I'm happy with the performance. I run it at low volume in the evenings so as not to disturb the family and it still sounds good.

Got the product, it was amazing at first. However, the light strip died on me on the second month of usage. I don't usually turn the LED on, unless if I wanted some extra mood for my room. The light strip now is able to cause epilepsy and looks like its from one of those freshman frat party lights. Unfortunately, I was not able to receive any RMA because it passed the one month time period

The software is super glitchy and unreliable. Sounds great though. Software issues make me think twice about recommending it to anyone.

Mids are extremely lacking when compared to a cheaper pair of Logitech speakers. Over all, they are okay but they need much improvement. I ended up replacing the sound bar with Audio Engine A5+ speakers and they are a massive improvement over the sound bar. Also it is hard to Truck a company that tries to cover up negative reviews of their product.

Great sound. Form factor helps clean up the desk without sacrificing sound quality. Narrow subwoofer fits well under the desk without getting in the way.
