SINGAPORE - 25 October 2018 - Creative Technology Ltd announced today the release of the Creative Stage Series, a new line of high-performance under-monitor soundbars at very competitive prices.
The Stage Series boosts the audio performance of stock PC and TV systems as well as gaming consoles through minimum fuss, cost-effectiveness and polished small form factor, compared with conventional 2.0 sound systems. This is especially ideal for users who want uncluttered desktops and homes. It's the perfect solution for those looking for that extra ‘oomph' when listening to music, watching movies or gaming at home, said Low Long Chye, General Manager at Creative.
Besides exceptional audio quality, the Stage Series also shines through in terms of connectivity across PC and consoles, including PS4, Xbox and TV. Both Stage and Stage Air feature wireless streaming from audio devices via Bluetooth technology, sport an AUX-in port for analog input, and a USB port to function as a standalone MP3 player.
Creative Stage (SGD119.99): Packs a Punch with Bundled Subwoofer
Priced at under $120, the 21-inch long Creative Stage packs a mean audio punch with dual custom-tuned, powerful mid-range drivers, coupled with a long throw side-firing subwoofer that is capable of providing room-filling, rich cinematic acoustics with remarkable bass response. The convenience factor is upped through a remote control so that users can directly access playback options, volume adjustment, input selection, EQ profiles for movies, music, concert and gaming as well as bass and treble settings.
The Stage easily fits on PC desktops or living room entertainment centers. It can be connected to TVs via optical-in. For a clutter-free look and feel, a wall-mount accessory kit is included.

Creative Stage Air (SGD59.99): Portable, Small Bar, Big Sound
The Creative Stage Air is nifty at 16 inches long, yet it shouts expansive audio quality, being powered by two custom-tuned, full-range drivers with an oversized radiator for enhanced bass response. The high portability factor shows through a built-in lithium-ion battery, allowing users to listen to their favorite tunes anywhere for up to six hours.
The portable Creative Stage Air is also right at home as a PC audio enhancement.
Both Stage (top) and Stage Air (above) feature a comprehensive suite of connectivity options across PC and consoles.
