Creative Stage: Compact, affordable soundbar with included subwoofer
The Stage soundbar from Creative Technology is positioned as a universal device for TV, computer, laptop and mobile device. The manufacturer called the model a “Under-monitor Soundbar”.
Among the main features Creative highlighted the powerful sound, rich bass provided by the included subwoofer, as well as several options for connecting the source. It should be added that the soundbar turned out to be compact: the width was 55 cm, the height was 7cm.
The system operates in a 2.1 configuration. The total peak power, according to the declared specifications, was 160 watts. The soundbar is based on two specially tuned midrange drivers, which are assisted by a long-stroke woofer in the subwoofer.
You can connect to Stage via optical input, AUX, HDMI and wirelessly – via Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR. In addition, the soundbar has a built-in player that can play files from a connected USB drive.
The user can control the Stage soundbar from the remote control or buttons on the device itself. Comes with a wall mount, remote control and 3.5mm cable.
