I did my preliminary evaluation of sound high quality down in my workplace space, which has a low ceiling. So what occurred after I took the Katana V2 to a bigger room? Nicely, just about the identical factor. The subwoofer wasn’t capable of present fairly the identical impression in my lounge, given the bigger area, nevertheless it was nonetheless producing a robust low finish. And the soundbar itself produces a satisfyingly vast sound subject.
Having a bigger display screen behind it additionally appeared to assist mission the audio higher, given the backward angle to the top-mounted drivers. And connectivity was a snap, with each HDMI ARC and TOSLINK optical working with out difficulty after setting the audio out on the TV correctly (I’ve a 2016 LG B6 OLED).
I’ll add that my household is spoiled by the large sound of our lounge setup, whether or not they understand it or not. There are tower audio system for the principle channels and full dimension bookshelf audio system for the surrounds, and bass is dealt with by a pair of 10-inch subwoofers. It’s a dramatic, highly effective sound system pushed by a reasonably excessive finish AVR, and whereas this soundbar can’t change it, it was a extra that satisfactory stand-in for a few days.
And now for a have a look at the software program Artistic gives for this, and different, merchandise.
