Aurora-Reactive LED Lighting with Spectacular Effects

The Katana Soundbar is 60 cm long as well as 6 cm high and its space-saving design allows it to be installed in front of the monitor or television. The top of the soundbar is manufactured from brushed aluminium and the controls are situated in the centre, which are themselves flanked by the 2,5" up-firing midbass drivers. The front of the Katana is adorned with a mesh covering, behind which an LED display is centrally located that shows the currently selected profile.

Embedded in the angled corners of the soundbar are the 34 mm tweeters, that also reproduce lower frequencies with superior clarity. A highlight of the katana is the AURORA Reactive lighting system consisting of 49 programmable RGB-LEDs and capable of displaying 16,8 million colours. The ambient light effects can be programmed via the software to bathe your gaming peripherals in a stylish light.

The 5,25" subwoofer driver is housed in a black MDF housing and accentuates the action on your TV or monitor with powerful bass. The Katana also succeeds in showing off the abilities of its superb subwoofer with its music playback function via the USB port, thereby giving you a audio experience that you can feel as well as hear. Those who prefer somewhat quieter evenings can also connect their headphones and headsets directly to the Katana.

Besides AUX, optical and stereo jacks, the Katana comes with Bluetooth 4.2 which allows smart devices to be connected via NFC (Near Field Communication). Furthermore, settings can be adjusted via the soundbar itself via software as well as remote control.

Awesome, I caved and bought this for my system upgrade and I can't praise it more, sound and looks top notch.
Sorry guys I think I bought the last one from OC!

Bought the katana after a little research on the usual site reading reviews etc, and it doesnt dissapoint,

Feels and looks extremley well built, sound fantastic and is compatible with more than enough devices, i use it for my ps4 pro as my tv audio, like many is not very good,

If you are looking for a sound system for gaming that is not going to eat up all your space , look no further,

One slight niggle is that it does not come supplied with a optical cable but they are cheap enough.

Oh and these guys ( overclockers ) are second to non with customer service,

Excellent product

Normally purchase stuff from the OCUK store directly but no longer live close by, so purchased this elsewhere a bit cheaper, including next day delivery.

Not too keen on DPD or DHL anymore, as they always have problems delivering stuff to my new house, whatever company I buy from.

Would definitely recommend the Katana to anyone thinking about purchasing one.

Better than expected

This soundbar is crazy good. I was expecting something average, with it being marketed as a "gaming" product but I am absolutely blown away. Crystal clear range with no distortion. The sub is so warm and punchy without distortion even at higher volumes. Comes with a remote and plenty of connectivity options and presets to suit your environment. Perfect.

it exceeded my expectations

First to share my opinion on this marvelous product? OK
What can I say...just blown away by the build quality and the amazing sound that Katana deliveres into your heart and brain.
It is a expensive 5.1 sound bar? no.
you get integrated sound card(usb) dolby etc, rgb lighting, bluetooth, remote,wall brackets, presets (for gaming, concert,cinema,etc)
For those who want to upgrade their sound to another level, and want a simple solution under monitor this is a Major GO.
