Two ways,
1) Get a HDMI soundbar but usually will cost around $7XX
like Sony CT790
2) You still can get the Katana but you will need to output from
your TV the surround sound VIA optical output.
Monitor wise no known monitor with optical output.
1. Already got CT790 in my living room. PS4 is at my other room.

2. PS4 slim does not have a optical output port.

If you are using a TV than connect the PS4 slim to it than
audio out from the TV optical output.
Monitor wise no known monitor with optical output.

Hope this helps.

Thanks techidiot for the comprehensive review.

Right now, I'm leaning more and more towards the Katana over my current X7+EMU XM7 setup. I realized that I seldom do any music listening with my speakers as I prefer to do that with my headphones. Most of my speakers use are for gaming and movies which the Katana seems to do very well. The MSRP is reasonable, meaning that I can probably get it even cheaper at the local IT shows. The space saved will be the greatest boon to me.

Won't commit to the MO though... Will want to listen to the Katana in person first, and see what kind of deals can Creative give for it at the IT show before deciding to replace my system or not.

You will have to try it on your own when you got the time.

Sorry to disappoint, I afraid those who want to MO.
Someone else will have to organize.
If you can just hoot, don't need to wait.
Even MO also not fast one, need sometime to process and etc.
Pricing also no guarantee.
