Audio

Your TV Deserves to Sound Better

Sure, your 4K TV looks magnificent, but they seldom have the sound to match. Upgrade your TV experience with the sound it deserves by adorning it with the Creative Stage V2. Immerse yourself in movies or games while Creative Stage V2 brings you exceptional sound quality with its custom-tuned mid-range drivers and deep thumping bass from the accompanying powerful long-throw subwoofer.

POWERED BY

You don't have to worry about dialogs and other acoustic details being drowned out by the powerful bass. The Creative Stage V2 is armed with Sound Blaster's audio technologies, Clear Dialog and Surround, providing you with improved vocal intelligibility and wide surround experience. Enjoy a cinema-like experience at the comfort of your own home, and focus on your screen without having to read subtitles.

Surround

Complete your immersive movie experience with our Surround technology, powered by Sound Blaster to deliver a wider soundstage to your media! It is capable of identifying and enhancing the spatial information of incoming audio via Sound Blaster's audio filters, thereby optimizing the listening experience for both two-channel and multi-channel source content. The result is expanded soundstage and spatialized audio from any type of audio source, including Netflix, HBO, and Amazon Prime Video, providing you with a more realistic and comfortable listening experience akin to cinemas.

Clear Dialog

It's great when your movie or game comes with rich and immersive audio, but it's a total downer if the dialog gets drowned out amongst the explosive sound effects and music. Clear Dialog extracts the vocals and spoken dialog through an algorithm, then intelligently enhances and amplifies them, allowing you to hear each syllable clearly, and without compromising on the other ambient effects.

Creative Stage V2 comes with all the connectivity options you can think of, so you can turn it into a one-stop audio entertainment system for all your devices and just not your TV—including computers, mobile phones, tablets, or even gaming consoles like PS4™ and Nintendo Switch™.

Design

HEAR IT, FEEL IT

The Creative Stage V2 comes with a subtle and minimalistic design that will blend seamlessly into any room regardless of their interior design.

REVIEWS

KnowTechie

It’s been said that good audio is also good gaming audio, so why risk it with a lesser-known brand? Creative has been at the top of the gaming audio market since its inception, and the Stage V2 soundbar with subwoofer continues in that proud tradition. Surround sound and clear dialog are a must for almost any content, whether it’s the latest games or kicking your feet up with a good movie.

The Creative Stage V2 offers balanced sound quality with slight emphasis on treble details that works well for music enjoyment. It delivers a little more bass support compared to 2.0 systems without compromising the clarity.

Compact and light, yet decent sound at a reasonable price. The revamped remote control is a big leap from the previous version.

Featured Questions

  1. I connected the Creative Stage V2 to my TV with a TV (ARC) cable, but the audio is still playing from my TV, not the soundbar.
    1. Ensure that the Creative Stage V2 is in TV (ARC) mode, as indicated with a “Hd” on its display
    2. Check that the TV (ARC) cable has been connected to the port labelled with “ARC” on the TV
    3. In your TV audio settings, check that your TV is set to use external speakers and ARC has been enabled, and audio output has been set to PCM
    4. Make sure that the cable you are using is version 1.4 or newer

    If you have tried all the above suggestions and there is still no audio, please contact our technical support for more assistance.

  2. There is no sound from the Creative Stage V2 when I watch Netflix or HBO on my TV, but it works when I watch normal TV channels.

    Certain online sources use Dolby Digital encoding, which Creative Stage V2 does not support. Please disable Dolby Digital in your TV settings to use Creative Stage V2 with these online media.

  3. How do I stop the soundbar from shutting off together with the TV?

    To deactivate this functionality, switch off CEC in the settings of your TV. This setting synchronizes the powering on or off of the soundbar with the TV. If you would prefer to have your soundbar on, please turn off the CEC setting in your TV settings. Do note that this capability is dependent on your TV, and it may not have been compatible with the Creative Stage V2.

  4. Why does my Creative Stage V2 shut down by itself sometimes?

    As a power-saving measure, the Creative Stage V2 will auto power down to standby mode after more than 24 hours of inactivity. To activate or deactivate this feature, press and hold the power button for 10s when the soundbar is powered off.
