Description

    Overview

    Named after the sword so technologically perfect in structure and so beautiful in creation that gives rise to aristocratic creed, 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 unparalleled by other gaming sound bar, making it the world’s first Under Monitor Audio System (UMAS).


    Key Features

    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 aluminium panel. This construction minimises 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 customise your ambience lighting effects to create your own unique profile that elevates your gaming and movie experience.

    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.

    Tri-Amplified Design: Put the Cutting Edge in Audio
    The Katana utilises a game-changing tri-amplified design with a total output of 75RMS/150W Peak Power to deliver room-filling audio, with uncompromisingly clear, high-definition, well-balanced audio and deep resonating bass. With the tri-amplified design, the amplifiers are controlled by proprietary multi-core Digital Signal Processor (DSP) - two dedicated to driving mids, another two dedicated to deliver the high frequencies, and one dedicated to churn out heart-thumping bass. From traversing through ravines to bullet-fast evasive maneuvers, you can hear all the details that other speakers fail to deliver.

    High Resolution 24-bit Audio: Immerse Yourself in Your Games and Movies
    In addition to powering the tri-amplified design, the Katana features 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, converting Dolby content into digital 5.1 configurations (up to 24-bit 96kHz).

    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.

    Comprehensive Connectivity Options
    Comes equipped with comprehensive connectivity connections, the Katana is versatile and compatible with many multimedia devices.

    Optical-in
    When connected via optical-in, the Dolby Digital-certified Katana delivers realistic digital 5.1 audio, giving you the most for your console gaming and movie nights.

    USB Audio: 7.1 Virtual Surround PC Gaming
    Level up your PC gaming experience with Virtual 7.1 audio when you connect to the Katana via USB. You can also enjoy 24bit/96kHz high-resolution audio via the USB Connection.2

    USB Flash Drive: Integrated Audio Player
    Play your entire music collection3 directly from the Katana via your USB Flash Drive that contains your favourite songs and press the Play button to enjoy a fantastic listening experience. You may also refer to your playlist from the Sound Blaster Connect4.

    Bluetooth: Wireless
    The Katana supports Bluetooth v4.2 that gives you a connecting range of up to 10 metres, so you can enjoy all the convenience for great wireless audio.

    Perfect for Late Night Games
    You don't have to wake up the entire house to be a late night gamer. With the headphone jack and microphone inputs, the Katana works with most headphones and headsets, so you can conveniently put your best game forward, even when everyone else is in their deep slumber.
