Deal alert: The sub-$500 2.1ch soundbar with subwoofer edition

If you saw last week’s deals, you’ll know that I was on the hunt for a new smart TV. But then I got to thinking, what is a TV experience without the sound to enhance it? That got me started on the hunt for an affordable 2.1 channel soundbar with a subwoofer for under S$500 that my wife wouldn’t complain about. The following are some that I found.


Creative Sound BlasterX Katana

The Creative Sound BlasterX Katana may be more than three years old, but it can still perform well enough to give others in the market a run for their money. It is definitely one of the sleeker designed soundbars you're likely to find in the market. But, its performance doesn't let it down either. Whether listening to music or a movie, you can be sure that this will put its best sound quality forward. Grab it now for S$399 with free shipping when it usually costs S$419.
