Audio

CLEAR AND PRECISE

Designed to elevate your desktop, gaming consoles, and TV's audio experiences, the Sound Blaster Katana V2X comes with a game-changing tri-amplified amps design, improved from our highly-raved OG Sound BlasterX Katana soundbar!

The tri-amplified amps design is controlled by our proprietary multicore DSP. This means that each of the mid-range drivers, tweeters, and subwoofer drivers are individually driven, delivering strong and impactful sound reproduction at every frequency. The soundbar also features a double-wall chassis construction to minimize disruptive vibrations, allowing the Sound Blaster Katana V2X to deliver pristine audio effortlessly.

IMMERSIVE SURROUND

The Sound Blaster Katana V2X delivers crystal clear and impressive room-filling sound with its 5.1 channel playback. Like its predecessor, the Sound Blaster Katana V2X is also a certified Dolby Audio1 decoder, so it can recreate the all-familiar cinematic experience in the comfort of your own home from a Dolby-certified source.

"it’s a definite winner if you’re struggling for space – it truly is compact, and provides much more volume and sound quality than its size hints at. And with the small subwoofer on the V2X, it’s now even easier to find space for this impressive duo."

"I now understand why the original Katana soundbar was so popular. The new improved Katana V2X is now even more versatile, and enables audio from games, movies/TV shows to feel more immersive and enjoyable. The added bass from the dedicated subwoofer will surely bring out more of any scene compared to using regular 2.0 sound systems. "
