When it comes to high-end sound bars I had to wrack my brain to think of anything that approaches the $5,800 Creative X-Fi Sonic Carrier in price. (Pricing outside the US wasn’t mentioned but that price converts to around £4,225 or AU$7,330) Maybe Paradigm, or Bowers and Wilkins. Surely GoldenEar has something?
It’s safe to say there has been nothing like the Sonic Carrier before.Creative may be known as a PC brand, but it does have a history in sound reproduction: from its pro offshoot E-Mu to its audio arm Cambridge SoundWorks. It also has made a number of budget sound bars, including the Katana, but none like this. The built-to-order Sonic Carrier is polarizing. It has flashing RGB lights! It has 1,000 watts of power. And a massive subwoofer!
