What you'd expect from Klipsch Reference Series
Those of you who don't know a lot about klpisch....this is one of the best American speakers brand and any "reference" series speakers are their top of the line...
This sound bar is simply amazing.... it transforms your TV sound from Rubbish to a true HD sound...you'd not believe what you had been listening to when you didn't have this...the only problem is placemnt of sound bar....I couldn't put it next to my 50" Panasonic plasma as it blocks tv infra red so I placed it behind it but it's still sounds really good...I paired my Panasonic tv...remote with sound bar, programmed different buttons with volume so I can use different buttons on my Panasonic remote to control tv volume and sound bar volume....while your Tv optical out goes into sound bar...it works excellent while u connect everything else to tv and get just one audio out and plug it into the sound bar. I have my media player, Apple TV and blue ray connected to to via hdmi and then to optical out into klipsch... It's truly worth the investment....it's not 5.1 but if u want just a very good sound this is one of the best alternatives
Very solid soundbar, i tested a lot of bars and most were pretty dull and not very powerful, this bar has a 10" wireless subwoofer which is very powerful and larger then most on market, i use it in a living area where a tv is flush on the wall, no cords, its a room about 80m2 and this bar/woofer can easily crank past what is needed, huge bass. If you after big loud clear sound but don't want cords or a big system, go have a listen to this, you wont be disappointed, think i got it for $1050 after a bit of a haggle. Only issue is the remote has short range, id say 3-3.5mtrs max.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I have a Klipsch R-20B soundbar connected via optical cable to my LG 65” 4K tv & every now & again (not on regular basis) the sound drops out for a slit second & then reinstates, missing a couple of words during a conversation on the tv. What can you suggest the fix could be? Cheers, Glen.
i haven't experienced this specific problem...the only thing i have noticed is, at times green status light is not appearing green as normal and is yellowish and i have to either wait couple of minutes or switch the input from remote (Bluetooth and then back to Optical) and it fixes the issue....Once it is working then it doesnt have any problems.
Where did u buy it from and how did u go with pairing it with tv remote....any issues with its operations from tv remote?
I don't want to use klipsch remote....can I survive without that once setup done
I use the supplied remote the range is a bit crap, I've never tried to pair with another, I got it from Harvey Norman. Go have a listen, it is a very good soundbar, the remote is its only downfall.
They say u can pair it with you TVs remote....didn't u try that...I don't want to carry 2 remotes and for me one of the biggest attraction was to use only one remote...
Harvey Norman has 4B on specials for around $650 and this one in $1400 though not on specials....I'll visit them and find out what they can best offer for 20B...
Did u compare both ?
