Expert review by : Stephen Dawson (

Creative SBS A40 USB-powered speakers


Offering reasonable sound, including tolerable bass levels at a very low price, the Creative SBS A40 speakers are a bargain.

Reasonably natural sound ; Quite good bass ; Fairly solid build

Nothing worth highlighting

On some kind of ultimate scale, the sound of the Creative SBS A40 USB-powered speakers was kind of good enough for everyday use. But on a value-for-money scale, it was remarkable
