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 5.1 Decoder. 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.

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

** Please Note: this model does not have the Aurora Reactive Lighting System **

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.

Inside the Subwoofer

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 utilizes 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 our 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 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 a certified Dolby Digital decoder that converts analog sound (stereo or 5.1) from an optical source into digital 5.1 configurations at 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

#SetupGoals are now achievable with the Katana. Comes equipped with comprehensive connectivity connections, the Katana is versatile and compatible with many multimedia devices.


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
