I Love It!

I've been watching various brands of sound bars for the last 6 months. When this one finally arrived at BestBuy, I knew I had to have it. I've had Klipsch speakers for years at my house so I trusted the brand. Installation and set up was a breeze. I've tied it in with a new Sony 4K TV using ARC to the sound bar to make the perfect entertainment system. The sub-woofer gives just a enough punch that my whole living room feels like a theater. Best bang for the buck I've found!

This new sound bar marries Klipsch's characteristically punchy and powerful speakers with the latest surround tech (hdmi arc, 3chnl hdmi, coded surround, dialog, night settings as well as the wireless sub feature). I was really looking for a speaker that will not only enhance voice but crank music like a beastly stereo system. I'd highly recommend it but if you don't believe me ask a Best Buy salesmen to let you test it out and hook your phone via Bluetooth and play your favorite tunes. Thank me later!

Great sound for a soundbar
Posted by: Isabel152 from: on
I usually read the reviews on the products I purchase, but since this one is fairly new no reviews were really available. I knew Klipsch has a well established name in sound and reviewed some of this soundbars predecessors.
I had listened to several soundbars in stores and did not like too many of them.
At this point I should probably state that I "downgraded" from my Onkyo 5.1 surround system to a soundbar due to the setup in our new apartment. So I am probably more picky than the average user.
But this has proven to be a great choice for a soundbar. It will not match a surround sound system, but the sound is clear and good.
I have noticed depending on where you sit the sound is sometimes better, but I can recommend it any way.

Limited Bluetooth, otherwise great sound
Posted by: Benjamin from: on
Purchased at BB after reading many reviews and expecting quality sound based on Klipsch's history. Easy to hook-up to newer Sony TV via optical cable. TV sound is excellent. Pandora streamed through TV was very good. Subwoofer is good, but not overpowering. Dialog enhancement seemed to work well.
When Bluetooth was synced to my iPhone 6, the volume was very low and sound was muffled (almost like AM radio). Sounded the same with my wife's iPhone . Do not have and did not try an Android phone. I had to turn the volume way up just to get to a moderate listening volume. Not sure if this was a Bluetooth compatibility issue with the iPhone (not apt-x?), but this was a deal breaker for me.
Returned the soundbar and will be purchasing the RSB-14 elsewhere when on sale, which has Play-Fi wi-fi. Figured for the money, Play-fi adds better wireless sound quality compared to Bluetooth and can be linked to other speakers. I figure this is the future direction of wireless technology and sound quality.
I would recommend the product, but caution with iPhone Bluetooth. Recommend testing Bluetooth with your phone in the store to ensure satisfaction.

I have had soundbars in the past and tried a few.I was introduced I believe to last years model and was blown away. I stumbled upon the rsb-11. The BB I bought mine from did not have on on display. I took it home , and had read a few more reviews on the (rs10?) and people had said give it time, let it break in. Well I did just that with this model. I also set my subwoofer next to the couch which is about 17 ft away from my tv, The sound really is incredible.
My only con is you can not adjust the treble and such, but you really do not need to. This thing works great for any program. Looking forward to watching a movie this weekend.

We returned a Sony soundbar with subwoofer due to its being too small a system for our family room. We purchased this Klipsch soundbar with subwoofer and are extremely pleased. The bluetooth subwoofer works great and the sound quality is excellent. We connected the soundbar/subwoofer through bluebooth to our Amazon dot and play music through Amazon Prime almost daily. The Klipsch is also connected to our 8 year old 52" Sony HDTV and is used rather than the built-in speakers in the television. Our family room is 21' X 17' and the Klipsch soundbar provides plenty of volume.

We were disappointed
Posted by: Mykdzmom from: on
We purchased this system and assumed it was the best choice because it was the most expensive. When we got it home we discovered that the sub was not adjustable like the JBL system. We set it up and were disappointed with the sound for the price.
My husband could connect easily by Bluetooth on his android but my iPhone could never recognize the device. I had experienced this in the store but thought it was just due to so many devices.
We had gone to BB to purchase the JBL but purchased this Klipsch instead.
The remote was nice and we easily programmed out TV remote to power this sound bar.
After setting it up in our home, we were not satisfied. We packed it back up and exchanged it for the JBL.

Trouble with two different soundbars
Posted by: genjimaster from: on
I purchased this for my parents and once I had it hooked up, the HDMI 2 port did not work, nor did the bluetooth connection. I thought maybe it was just a lemon, so my parents returned it and picked up another soundbar. They had sound for the first day, then suddenly no sound would come from the soundbar. They returned it and purchased a Sony soundbar, which unfortunately didn't have the volume or bass levels that this one had when it was working. We did not have a good experience trying to get this set to work, which is too bad because it sounded great the short period of time we had it working.

Sounds Great but Horrible Quality
Posted by: Komer from: on
The switch does not process HDR signals. Up until this year if you had a newer Serial number and did a firmware update it would "brick" your soundbar. Finally the RSB-11 would have a very low static and white noise from the speaker when no audio is playing, I unplugged all input cables and trying plugging in the unit to other outlets. Bluetooth range is poor. Sound is clear and and crisp, like what you would expect of Klipsch.
