Over the years, I’ve had a variety of speakers connected to my computer. My most recent set has five small satellite speakers with a subwoofer. Today we’ll look at a soundbar designed specifically for the computer. There are fewer pieces and it can still provide big sound. I’ll include an Amazon link that earns me a tiny commission. Nothing else has been received for writing this.
The Razer Leviathan V2 has two main pieces, a soundbar and a subwoofer. One limitation it has relates to connectivity. You can either connect it via Bluetooth or a USB-C cable. It doesn’t not support HDMI, optical, a 3.5mm plug or any other method. Thus you could use it with a phone or tablet, but you likely won’t use it with a television. It truly is designed to be used with your computer.
Ideally you’ll place the soundbar in front of or under your monitor as it stands approximately three and a half inches tall. If possible, you’ll want to put the subwoofer on the floor though the supplied cable to connect it to the soundbar may not be as long as you’d like. For those who want more than sound, the soundbar includes RGB lighting that can integrated with lighting on your computer.
In order to get the sound to feel like it surrounds you, THX Spatial Audio is included. There is even a mobile app that allows you to customize the sound and lighting controls.
This system is definitely more clutter-free than my current setup that requires running wires to the five small surround speakers and the subwoofer. The Razer Leviathan V2 is definitely something I will consider if I choose to get a new sound system. I just wish it had more connection options and was priced a little lower.
