Klipsch and Henley Audio announce four new soundbars from the renowned US maker. The new Klipsch line comprises the Cinema 400, Cinema 600, Cinema 800, and Cinema 1200. Offering an extensive range of movie and music-led features, and at four distinct prices, all of the new models include sleekly styled soundbars and matching subwoofer. Highlights include a Dolby Atmos-capable 5.1.4 system; compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Spotify Connect; matching wireless subwoofers; and 8K passthrough. Klipsch houses all this latest tech in something a little more aged (and lovely) – real wood cabinets. The result is a collection of beautifully finished soundbar/subwoofer packages, primed for action and set to complement any home decor.

Klipsch Cinema 400 (£379.00 SRP, on sale December 2020)
Designed to effortlessly connect to TVs – Klipsch includes an HDMI cable – the Cinema 400 entry-level model swiftly delivers a serious upgrade to the home gaming/movie/music experience. A pair of Klipsch Tractrix 1” (25mm) tweeters and a brace of 3” (76mm) midrange drivers combine with the wireless 8” (203mm) subwoofer to dish-up Klipsch’s legendary, dynamic acoustics. Virtual surround, dialogue-enhancing and night modes, plus built-in Dolby Audio decoding complete the Cinema 400.

Klipsch Cinema 600 (£549.00 SRP, on sale December 2020)
The Cinema 600 builds on the entry model, totalling three of the same Klipsch Tractrix tweeters, four of those 76mm midrange drivers, and employs the even more powerful 10” (254mm) wireless subwoofer. The 600 also hails the Klipsch motion sensing remote, meaning full control even when the lights are low. The result is a thrilling sonic ride, one that also uses its dedicated centre channel to ensure not a word of dialogue is missed during the presentation. Add the optional Klipsch Surround 3 speakers for a complete 5.1 audio experience.

Klipsch Cinema 800 (£899.00 SRP, on sale early 2021)
The Klipsch Cinema 800 package stylishly brings Dolby Atmos into the home, enabling 7.1.4 decoding and creating overhead sound for greater immersion. This model also handles wireless music streaming, integrating into your smart home ecosystem via Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Spotify Connect. Packing a 3.1 speaker system, including the Klipsch 10” wireless subwoofer, the Cinema 800 offers 8K video passthrough, enabling seamless integration with the latest, state-of-the-art TVs and HDMI sources. Cinema 800 owners can also select the optional Klipsch SURROUND 3 (£256.00 SRP) speakers, elevating the 3.1 system into a fully-fledged 5.1 surround sound animal.

Klipsch Cinema 1200 (£1,449.00 SRP, on sale early 2021)
The flagship of the new Klipsch soundbar fleet is the Cinema 1200 soundbar. In the box lurks a muscular 5.1.4 system, complete with wireless surrounds, as well as the 12” (305mm) wireless subwoofer. Set up the Cinema 1200 and your habitat is now home to 1200 watts of power, brought to you by a maker with decades of professional cinema acoustic research and development. Sit back experience sound from all directions, including overhead, resulting in a bona fide Dolby Atmos cinematic experience without you leaving the sofa. The Cinema 1200’s built-in universal wi-fi works with wireless multi-room music streaming from Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Spotify Connect, and this Klipsch is as gifted with music and gaming audio as it is with movie soundtracks and TV sounds. Klipsch crafts the Cinema 1200 soundbar, the subwoofer and surrounds from real wood and the package includes interchangeable walnut end caps – this is one special system.
