Creative is known mainly for SoundBlaster sound cards and speakers. I’ve reviewed their wonderful Roar wireless speaker series. Creative’s newest speaker is the BlasterX Kratos S5 is a 2.1 gaming speaker system with Aurora Reactive lighting system. It comes with powerful 4” satellite drivers and a 6.5” subwoofer in wooden enclosures, delivering clear highs, detailed mid-range and deep bass. When connected to a PC or Mac it’s capable of high-quality 24-bit/96kHz digital audio playback.

The full-range satellites are designed with large volume capacity in mind. The custom-tuned, down-firing subwoofer pumps out deep bass for gaming, movie and mega bass music playback without distortion.
