sound wise VERY impressive for both games and music. The bass is amazing and is more than enough considering we sit near the desktop. Don't waste time on Katana as i have it before and sound wise is heaven and earth apart. You can test it at Courts or Harvey norman, it's totally different class from katana. I remember Katana having thin sound while the Bean is super rich and emersive.

Cons:
1. need to have wifi connection and a lot of controls is via your phone or tablet.
2. Need a bit of work to connect the bar to either Alexa or Google assistant. i managed to get it to work, so you can ask me if u really getting it. It's fun every morning asking it to play radio just by talking to it.
Can you share how you connect it to the PC? I am considering it too, but can't think of a neat way to connect it to my PC...
