While it doesn’t come with a subwoofer, Creative says that the Stage SE PC soundbar “packs a powerful audio punch with custom-tuned racetrack drivers and Sound Blaster technology to deliver a clearer and more immersive audio experience.” With a total peak power of 48W, it offers a better listening experience than your default speakers and features like Clear Dialog and Surround Sound offer a cinema-like audio experience.
With the included remote, users can easily adjust the tone and tune the soundbar to their preference. It also allows easy toggling of the surround sound and clear dialogue modes, as well as toggling between PC USB and Bluetooth modes. Furthermore, the integrated volume control knob on the side of the soundbar allows for easy volume adjustments on the fly.
