Did my homework
Posted by: DrSpaceknob from: on
Received Samsung HW-H550 as a present. Decent for the price. Focuses more on features than sound quality. Debated many options. I read every review for every option on this site, narrowed down to a handful, then cross referenced them on other sites. Traded it in and I am currently using the Klipsch R-20B and absolutely love it. 10" Subwoofer has warm bass with decent punch when needed (adjustable woofer). Put the woofer in the corner with speaker side facing wall as indicated in manual. Sound bar has a total of six speakers (2 more than R-10B, which only has 8" woofer). The highs are so clean and crisp! And of course I connected my iPhone via Bluetooth (which delivers better bandwidth and louder than optical connection) and cranked the dub-step UP, no distortion! I don't care for the 3-D sound though. It creates an interesting wider feel, but the EQ squashes the midrange in an awkward way. If you want surround, don't shop for a sound bar and buy a.true surround system. My room/ furniture set up is not conducive for surround. If you want to spend over a grand, get Yamaha, their processing is impeccable. If you want to spend no more than 600, get the R-10B, the power is the same. For me, the $800 R-20B proved to be my sweet spot. And it's easy to program any remote to operate it.

Great sound and flexibility
Posted by: Friulano from: on
I was looking for an option to simplify audio components, remove wires and enhance TV sound in living room. I finally decided on Klipsch R-20B sound bar, wireless subwoofer system. As a result, removed receiver, floor standing speakers and wires. Now I have near invisible great sounding system if my living room. Great sound using optical audio cable from TV, use analogue cable to iPOD for music library, option to stream music via bluetooth from any BT capable device. TWO very important additional benefits, 1) I can control volume through standard cable box remote AND 2) by using the optical audio source direct from the TV, voice is ALWAYS in sync with lips on the screen. NO MORE annoying delays. Did I mention great, room filling sound?
Two weak point (not important to me). 1) Bluetooth sound is a little "harsh" when using iPAD 2 or smartphone bluetooth. Not sure if this is a problem with the system or the devices. Seems a little better when streaming from MacBook Pro where I can balance sound via equalizer in iTunes. The 2nd weakness is the 3D sound enhancer. Disappointing. Don't expect simulated surround sound from this system. HOWEVER, watching movies from either cable box or Apple TV sounds great with full tone, volume and great dynamic range even without the 3D enhancement.

Good value for a price
Posted by: igor from: on
Got it on sale at Best Buy - good value for the money: the original TV speakers on my Samsung produced a very poor quality sound so decided to get an external speaker. While more expensive than most of samsung and sony similar speaker bars, KLIPSCH outperforms those by a large margin.

Listened to multiple soundbars prior to purchasing the R-20, and I have zero regrets. Have a home theater setup downstairs with Klipsch Speakers all around, but wanted something for the upstairs too. I didn't have the room for multiple speakers, and since she refers to it as the "pretty room" my choices were limited to a sound bar. This unit truly transformed the viewing experience. Of course it doesn't replicate the home theater dynamics, but none of them do. Having said that, this unit does an outstanding job! Again, no regrets. Speaker ties in with your existing remote, so it's pretty seamless. Bass is more than adequate. The only downside is limited connectivity options, but that's really a non issue. If you're looking for gimmicks and lots of gadgetry you might want to pass on the R-20, however if you're searching for a truly satisfying audio experience then your search is over.

super easy setup and bluetooth worked flawlessly and setup with my harmony ultimate went smooth. Great sound quality and deep hard hitting bass. I like how you can adjust the bass with the knob control on the sub. I took away 1 star because it only has 1 optical input and 1 rca input. I had to buy a optical to rca converter to hook up my wd tv and cable box. For a soundbar in this price range it should have more input options.

As usual, Klipsch does not disappoint
Posted by: theonewhopaidforit from: MEMPHIS TN on
Long time Klipsch owner, from classic speakers Heresy and Forte, then to LaScala speakers, and have always been so impressed with the efficiency and sound quality of their speakers. I've had guys brag about their speakers only to then watch their faces droop after they've heard mine. This sound bar system is no different. Handles movie sound, especially concert films, exceptionally well.
Got the shipment 2 days ahead of schedule and no problems. Best Buy pricematched and I got it for $200 less. Very happy with both the speakers and the Best Buy experience.

Has very good sound , crisp high and with the 10" wireless sub well its like I have my sound system from my truck which isnt stock in my house.the music is better, the movies well the theater isn't necessary. You can Bluetooth from tour phone, DVD player computer. As the old saying goes "you pay for what you get" you can get a 8" sub but you'd be wishing you had the 10" . It's worth the difference in payment. Enjoy.
