Creative Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 Review

Closer Look

The satellites have a rather dominating presence with their 198.5 x 118 x 120 mm stature and the disproportionately large 4" drivers staring at you, their size made a little more intimidating due to the surrounding frame. The satellites have a slight angle to them, aiming the audio slightly upwards, and the attached cable sits at around 1.8m long, ample enough to provide a good stereo experience on your desktop.

The monolithic MDF subwoofer is moderately large on the desktop at 306 x 220 x 260 mm and features a whopping 3" bass reflex port, which should help provide a rich audio experience.

As this is a down-firing subwoofer, naturally we find the 6.5" driver mounted on the underside, surrounded by the four feet in each corner to hold the subwoofer up.

At the back of the subwoofer you will find the control panel, from the top down: LED button (toggles between 5 modes and off), bass dial, RCA input, 2x satellite speaker outputs, 3.5mm AUX-in, microUSB connection, auto standby switch (automatically shuts down after 20mins of no audio detected), and the power socket.
