Better than expected for the price

First impressions from last night's connection and playing with it are excellent. The ARC function works out of the box. Crazy simplicity. The sound is gigantic for a bar under $200. Dialogues are clean, crisp and clear. The bass is wild. How did Klipsch manage to add such a large subwoofer for such a price?!?!?So far I'm happy with the performance. Today stands as is. I will install and update later depending on how things go. It's phenomenal for the price.

  • Fingers crossed
  • High price

Great sound and price doesn't bite

So I bought this panel and Cinema 600. Maybe it's me, but I couldn't justify the price difference and sent the 600 back. This panel sounds great, the subwoofer is small, visually appealing and powerful. When connected via HDMI ARC, the panel blends seamlessly into your TV. Of course, don't expect this panel to be a direct replacement for a full HT system, but it will greatly improve sound quality when watching TV and even listening to music. Overall a great soundbar.

Decent Quality, Best Home Audio

I was initially very impressed with the performance of the Klipsch home theater sound system. If you're a Klipsch fan, don't get your hopes up on this soundbar. It works well. Bought in stock. The soundbar's workmanship isn't that good (it has cheap workmanship), but it works well. The remote control is the most annoying. I'm not sure if the item itself is defective or not. But it keeps turning off when the video is paused on the TV. Switches back to my TV sound. When you try to reconnect, the…

Is that really a clip?

I bought 2 computer speakers 2.1 Klipsch, thanks both amps failed but I also know they make really good sounding speakers, I've heard them. The quality of this product is really questionable. I uploaded a photo where they couldn't even attach the stick to the soundbar properly. The bass isn't bad, but nothing good. The sound is also fur. Don't get me wrong, it sounds good, but I thought that ordering this soundbar from this famous brand, even if it's a budget soundbar, it will still sound like…

Poor quality for home audio

I've been a PRIME member for a long time and I rarely write reviews. Only if the product exceeds my expectations or if the product doesn't work well. This product belongs to the category of unsuccessful. The subwoofer and main soundbar will not pair (communicate). After attempting to contact Revain Technical Support, it became clear that this was a defective unit. I purchased this product on December 19, 2020 as a Christmas present for a family member and received it on December 22, 2020. Good…

Expected better from Klipsch

I have a large selection of Klipsch products that I use for my regular surround setup. When I received them I expected the same quality you would expect from the Klipsch brand. Unfortunately, this is not one of those products. After receiving and plugging in the product for the first time, I noticed a rattling noise coming from the subwoofer when the bass hit. So I took the back panel off and there was a piece of wood in there that was glued on and it came loose and just rattled. After I…

I am very happy with this purchase, I will advise everyone!

I was looking for a soundbar specifically for music, because there is nowhere to put the speakers, the sound struck me, there was a lot of audio equipment before, but this is the first one on which I even reduce the bass !

  • Very good for music!

Subpar Sound Offer

Overall I think this 2.1 system falls short if you're looking for a decent virtual surround sound system for your entertainment system, which is what I was looking for. I returned it because the sound wasn't that impressive for Klipsch and got the Vizio 5.1 instead for a lower price and the overall sound of this one is much more satisfying because it really has center and atmosphere. While the Klipsch definitely offers fuller sound across the board, I can't forgive how poor the virtual surround

  • Best-in-class 8" subwoofer
  • The list will go on.

There is quite a bit of white noise in my room (about 60dB average), hence it was difficult to hear dialogue in movies, even with the Vizio 5.1 surround sound system. Although the music and sound effects will always be heard, I have to turn up the volume to hear the dialogue. This resulted in me using subtitles for all media to avoid waking up my family, cranking the volume up to around 75% just to hear the characters speak. However, I recently decided to replace my old Vizio system and upgrade

Setting new standards for entry-level soundbars

Experience. real sound. I've heard that the Klipsch Cinema 400 offers excellent value for money bass as it uses the largest (8 inch) subwoofer in its price range and Klipsch is widely known for its good upper midrange clarity. I'm glad I did as many of the other brands I've tried for the same price all had very unimpressive bass and much dirtier upper mids and highs. The Vizio V and M series 2.1 and 5.1 come closest in price and are even significantly cheaper, which is why they're the main…
