Creative Sound Blaster Katana V2 review: The gamers' soundbar

As you might guess from the RBG lighting, this soundbar is aimed at gamers. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are loads of ways to connect it to your TV including HDMI ARC and Bluetooth, so you should find that simple. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It has crazy volume to offer up - we generally found ourselves using just 10% or so of its maximum! (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The subwoofer that comes with it is pretty chunky, but hide it from sight and you'll be happy by the added low-end wobble provided. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
We like the bar's design, though, with a brushed metal finish other than the speaker grilles, and a useful LCD display on the front. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The inclusion of this little headphone jack is also really nice and useful. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The remote for the Katana V2 is way better than on the older version, and lets you make custom buttons. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
We're impressed by this soundbar's volume, but it's not that subtle. This can mean you miss details, which isn't ideal - but for gamers we think it's super. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
