Sound Blaster Roar

By Bob on October 2, 2014 5:29 AM

The world is full of Bluetooth speakers that promise to deliver sound like you're sitting center stage at Carnegie Hall. Truth is there may be less than a handful that can actually deliver. 

The Sound Blaster Roar blew me away with its sleek style and superb sound

Here's one that actually lives up (and in some instances) exceeds the hype: the Sound Blaster Roar from Creative Technology.

It delivers spectacular audio delivery in a sleek design that's as at home at Carnegie Hall as it as in your home. It's sooo good it's become our go-to music device at home and at the ranch (trust me Dwight Yoakum never sounded better).

The Sound Blaster Roar, is a new concept, 5-driver high performance portable Bluetooth wireless speaker that delivers powerful, precision-tuned, high fidelity sound, emitted from a compact (some call it "bookshelf") sized speaker.

The Sound Guys said...   

Don't let the minimalist design fool you. It has 5 drivers powered by 2 high-performance amplifiers and includes a built-in subwoofer for kickass (manufacturer's words, not mine - but it's an apt description) thumping bass. 

It also comes with a proprietary ROAR button that fills the room with rich, deep sound when you turn it on. Don't ask me how it does it - but it really works well, especially when the speaker is competing with dinner party conversation.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
