Creative has presented a compact sound solution for your PC. The handy Creative Stage SE is a soundbar that should fit perfectly on pretty much any desk thanks to its small size. Full-range Racetrack drivers with decent power paired with voluminous radiators are supposed to provide a rich sound.
Creative Stage SE is perfect replacement for monitor speakers
By now, pretty much every monitor comes with built-in speakers. However, similar to TVs, these offer a rather weak sound. If you occasionally want to watch a movie or listen to music on your PC without headphones, you should urgently upgrade. As with the classic TV, a soundbar is also a good choice for the PC. However, since experience shows that there is less space on a desk than on the sideboard in the living room, this should also be small.

This is what Creative has tried to implement with the Creative Stage SE. Thanks to its Racetrack drivers and Sound Blaster technology, the weak sound of your monitor speakers should be quickly forgotten. An impressive 48 watts of peak power speak for themselves. According to the Taiwanese manufacturer, the system even scores with surround sound and special sound options like “Clear Dialog”. Here, the dialog passages are clearly emphasized to increase the intelligibility.

The small soundbar for the desk also seems to score in terms of ease of use. According to Creative, it offers uncomplicated controls on the device itself. A multifunctional rotary dial is used to adjust the volume and sound mode. Those who want to lean back can alternatively use the included remote control. Thanks to Bluetooth 5.3, it can also be paired with other source devices than the PC. Plug-and-play always ensures fast and uncomplicated music playback with Bluetooth as well as USB audio connection.
