I believe it's due to its "positional" sound when using as a speaker. I think it's going for a headphone replacement, hence the noise canceling part as well. I guess theoretically you would be able to communicate clearly when using a speaker, which normally doesn't happen unless you have a super cardioid mic or something like that. Honestly, that dac is usually 200ish by itself so I'm tempted just to use it for that.

Seems overpriced even at $199
Seems like such a niche product. Not sure who would buy this.
Seems like two niche products crammed into one. On one hand its comparable to other "gamer" soundbars for PC which are usually decent compact substitutes for a speaker that do "okay". On the other hand it has bluetooth and audio out with the following high end DAC:
"Hi-Fi Quad DAC - ESS9038 Pro", which is in theory comparable with other standalone DACs in the 300 range (however no idea if the audio implementation is good).

I would personally think of it more as buying it for the high end DAC that just happens to have a battery, bluetooth, and speaker but that's just me. Probably will get one and give it a shot.

A few off the top of my head: Razer Leviathan, Creative Stage, Creative Katana
There are others. Everyone always says the soundbars don't do as well as pretty much any other setup but they can be useful in some situations.

If you wanted you should also consider a refurbished Creative Labs Katana V1 for $150. It isn't portable, but has the same inputs and a sub.

I have the v1 and v2 Katana sound bars and enjoy them a lot.

I'd def bite on this at $100, but $200 is still too much.

I guess you can just slap "gaming" on anything to include Bluetooth speakers now.

can you use the dac portion without the speaker?

I grabbed the refurbished V1 for 125. One of the front tweeters wouldn't work unless you squeezed on the frame. Support was good with responding, and mailed out a replacement unit that will be arriving this Friday. Kudos to their support being decent/not horrible. I could tell the V1 sounds really solid. How big is the difference with V2? Not so much the sub but the tweeters and cones?

I grabbed this when Best Buy had their sale. I was mainly interested in the dac amp performance especially using a headphone. The user experience I felt it was pretty good but in terms of performance My topping dx3 pro+ is more powerful . Ironically they both cost the same now given the price cut. I ended up returning this unit

The V2 is better in every way. The sound from the sound bar is better, crisper and more pleasant. The lighting is better. The inputs are better as the V2 has an HDMI input. The remote is better. The output is better and the v2 can get a lot louder than the v1.

I do think the v2 is a bit expensive at $329 and there are and better sounding soundbars out there. Though this is a "gaming" soundbar. I have mine hooked up to my samsung smart monitor that is a smart tv and a computer monitor.

I'd def recommend the V2 over a V1 in new condition, but if you can get the V1 refurbed with a coupon for $125ish it is hard to beat at that price.
