Sound BlasterX Katana

Multi-channel Gaming Soundbar
Professionally Designed for Hi-fi Music Playback

Named after the sword so technologically perfect in structure and so demanding in its creation, the Sound BlasterX Katana exhibits the same sleek sophistication and formidable strength in its design and audio prowess. In a league of its own, the Katana fits right under your monitor with a slimness that's unmatched by other so-called gaming “sound bars”, and is powered and enhanced by our award winning multi-core audio DSP making it the world's first true Under Monitor Audio System (UMAS).

In addition, the Sound BlasterX features the Aurora Reactive lighting system, a series of 49 programmable LED lights lined from edge to edge of the Katana chassis, making it the perfect addition to fully optimize and customize your PC and desktop setup.

The Katana gives you an immersive audio experience for your games and movies with the BlasterX Acoustic Engine and Dolby Digital Decoding. This audio system embodies the perfect combination of our most powerful 24-bit high resolution DAC and sophisticated 5-driver system. Housing a tri-amplified design where the 5 drivers are individually powered by DSP-controlled amplifiers, the Katana delivers ultra-precise audio at each part of the audio spectrum.

Equipped with a plethora of connectivity options, you can trust the Katana to be one of the most versatile and most powerful speakers to ever grace your desktop.

DESIGN

Under Monitor Audio System: So Sleek, Yet So Powerful
The Katana can be effortlessly tucked right under your monitors and TV. With a slim profile shorter than 60mm, this Under Monitor Audio System is drastically superior in form and function to ordinary “gaming soundbars” and is perfect for all setups, especially multi-monitor PC and/or console gaming rigs.

The chassis is exquisitely crafted and reinforced with a sturdy, brushed aluminum panel. This construction minimizes harmful vibrations that reduce clarity. Together with its clean, purposeful lines, the detail-oriented craftsmanship behind the Katana makes it a truly remarkable piece of tech and art.

Aurora Reactive Lighting System: Light Up Your Setup
The Katana incorporates the Aurora Reactive lighting system, where its base is lined with 49 programmable LED lights from edge to edge. Just like each unique hamon of the Japanese sword, the Aurora Reactive lighting system comes in 16.8 million colours for you to customize your ambience lighting effects to create your own unique profile that elevates your gaming and movie experience.

AUDIO

5-driver Design: Expertly Tuned Acoustics
The Katana houses a 5-driver design - two up-firing midbass drivers and two high-excursion tweeters in the soundbar, and one long-throw driver in its subwoofer.
Each driver is individually chambered and powered by a DSP-controlled amplifier to deliver ultra-precise audio.

2.5″ (63.5mm) Upfiring Midbass Drivers
The highly efficient 2.5″ midbass drivers housed in an optimally tuned ported enclosure pump out clean, transparent midrange and dynamic midbass. Directing the audio upwards also provides for a wider soundstage that doesn't require the listener to be situated in the audio sweet spot.

1.3″ (34mm) High-excursion Tweeters
The high-frequency drivers feature inverted alloy dome diaphragms and wide polymer surrounds for low-resonant frequency and extended low-frequency response. These high-excursion tweeters allow us to cross them to the midbass at a much lower frequency than conventional tweeters, resulting in seamless driver integration and uncompromising clarity.

5.25″ (133mm) Subwoofer Driver
The long-throw subwoofer features a super stiff paper cone and low loss surround for clean, detailed, chest-thumping bass. The driver is housed in a CARB-compliant MDF cabinet with flared port tube for laminar air flow and increased output. Experience the Katana to hear its powerful bass that reverberate through your bones.

High Resolution 24-bit Audio: Immerse Yourself in Your Games and Movies
In addition to powering the tri-amplified design, the Katana features our award winning proprietary multi-core DSP that is capable of producing 24-bit high-resolution audio for lossless, crystal-clear and impressive room-filling sound. It is also a certified Dolby Digital decoder, providing incredibly realistic virtual 5.1 surround sound.

Immersive 3D PC Gaming Audio
The Katana doubles as a sound card which supports Virtual 7.1 channel1 audio input signals to deliver realistic gaming effects and audio cues with near-perfect accuracy and positioning when you hook it up via USB.
