Klipsch Cinema Soundbar Range Launched

As the festive season looms ever-closer, Klipsch has announced a quartet of wireless soundbars to boost the audio of your choice of holiday blockbusters.

Comprising the Cinema 400, 600, 800 and the flagship 1200 soundbars the new Klipsch Cinema range boasts Alexa, Google Assistant and Spotify Connect compatibility. Furthermore, AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth are also on board, ensuring multi-room music streaming as well as movie playback is covered.

Naturally, you get Klipsch's signature horn-loaded tweeters as found in the American brand's Reference speaker range.

Additionally, Klipsch has wrapped this tech in real wood cabinets. Not only will this suit most people's decor, but it's also said to mitigate against unwanted resonance.

The flagship of the Klipsch Cinema soundbars is the Cinema 1200. This is a 5.1.4 system. Along with wireless surround speakers and 12-inch subwoofer, the soundbar sports upward-firing Atmos drivers.

Driving things along is a 1200 watt amp while connectivity options include Next-gen HDMI eARC and 8K passthrough. You even get interchangeable walnut end caps - which is nice.

Next in line is the Atmos-able Klipsch Cinema 800 that apparently has the chops to decode 7.1.4, as well as 8K video passthrough. This soundbar comes with a 10-inch wireless subwoofer and can be expanded from a 3.1 system to a 5.1 system by adding a pair of Klipsch Surround 3 speakers for an extra £256.

The entry-level Klipsch Cinema 400 features a pair of Klipsch Tractrix 25mm tweeters alongside a brace of 3-inch midrange drivers. Bringing the bass is an 8-inch wireless subwoofer. Klipsch even throws in an HDMI cable in to make set-up even more painless.

Building on the 400, the Cinema 600 adds another Tractrix tweeter and a further two midrangers bringing the total to seven drivers. Bolstering the lows is a more powerful 10-inch wireless subwoofer. Again, you have the option of adding the Surround 3 speakers for a 5.1 experience.

The Cinema 400 ($795 RRP) and 600 ($1,095 RRP) are available now, while the Cinema 1200 (price not confirmed) and 800 ($1,695 RRP) will be available early in the new year.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
