    Did my homework

    Posted .

    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 .

    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.

    As usual, Klipsch does not disappoint

    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.

    Good value for a price

    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.

    Awesome Sound, Great Value!

    I own the R-10B and couldn't pass up the closeout on the R-20B. If you can live without the fact this unit cannot accept HDMI as an audio input and you have to use Optical or Analog sound input, you will not be disappointed. The sound is very balanced and you can adjust the subwoofer output directly on the sub. There are not really any sound adjustments on this soundbar- I did not really get much out of the 3D sound setting- my soundbar sits in a very open area- if I had walls to bounce the sound off, maybe the sound would have achieved more of the intended effect. The bluetooth sounds great, the Apt X works very well. The next generation of this soundbar includes all the features people were requesting- HDMI input, sub control from the remote, dialog-surround-night modes. There was a bit of a break-in period and after about 10 hours it sounded even better.

    Great sound, except for cheap remote control!!

    This soundbar sounds pretty good. There are a few items I wish it came with, especially seeing the retail price is $799. There is no smart technology other than Bluetooth. There is only an Optical input. The systems seems, very rarely though, to decide when it wants to change the input and it starts blinking very quickly. I enjoy the sound and I like the 3D mode, it loses some volume until you turn it up, but overall it is good. The remote that comes with it feels very cheap and is very small. If you don't know exactly what the setup is/buttons are you can change inputs/volume,etc without even knowing it. Then it can take a while to figure out how to get it back to normal. The soundbar is a little taller than I want and I had to move it off to the side because it totally blocks my IR sensor of my TV, but again it is manageable. Overall I would say this is a pretty decent soundbar and the subwoofer sounds great and you can adjust the bass with a knob in the back. I can't turn it up 100% because I live in a town home and don't want to get in trouble because of it being too loud.

    Exceeds Expectations

    Posted .

    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.

    Amazing Sound!

    I have waited a couple months for this review. I wanted to ensure that I leave a solid review for this product. Although this could be considered an older model/version I would not let that dissuade you from possibly purchasing this. These speakers offer an amazing rich and full tone. I am not a fan of the 3D or the bluetooth capabilities. I think many people have commented as such. For those 2 reasons, I removed 1 star. I have been simply enjoying the sound without those settings, and it is fantastic! It replaced my 5.1 Onkyo system. This is NOT a true surround sound system but the quality of this sound is hard to rival by many of the sound systems I have experienced, even higher priced sound bar and surround sound systems. I am absolutely satisfied with my purchase. ** I did have a defect in my remote but I contacted Klipsh and they are sending me a new remote at no cost. I am not concerned though because the system paired up in only a few minutes using my Logitech Harmony Ultimate remote. **

    Very loud and crisp!

    I purchased this product whenever it was on sale. Needless to say, this is one of the best purchases I have made! This sound bar is incredible. Usually whenever I use products to play music and turn the volume all the way up, you get some form of distortion. There is ZERO distortion when it comes to this, and the sound is clear all the way through from the high to lows. To give you an example, I was playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on my video game console. As I would reload, I could hear the bullet shells hit the ground. It is a great sound bar. I had the subwoofer placed in the corner of the living room, and I also watched a few movies on this thing. I was engulfed in the sound. I truly felt like I was in a movie theatre. It was almost a little TOO loud (never a bad thing), so I had to turn it down a little while watching the film. I cannot say enough great things about this product. 10/10 would recommend!

    Big soundbar!

    Posted .

    I am a huge Klipsch fan and read the reviews before buying. Almost all were good. That being said, I am glad I bought this on sale. Best Buy set it up, but I promptly managed to screw up the settings. The manual does a poor job of explaining the blue light and blinking speeds, which I think is how you program your remote. Anyway, I am just glad the sound is back on, and that it did not blow the speakers when it came on! The sound bar is bigger than many at 4". It works best mounted to the bottom of the tv. The sub-woofer adds that 3D vibration, and I am still trying different locations for it. It is a heavy box. Different channels come in at different volumes. That was probably always true, but now it is more enhanced and annoying. It is better sound than the tv, and most would not have the technical problems I do.

    Amazing Soundbar... if the price is right.

    I purchased this soundbar during a flash sale for $299. At that price, it's a no-brainer and I would highly recommend it. The bass is smooth and powerful but the biggest standout is the high frequency response. The clarity this system provides is spectacular. HOWEVER, if you're looking at this at it's regular price of $799 then I would definitely recommend picking up the $499 JBL SB400 instead. I tested both systems side by side in the same room with the same sub placement and in my opinion, the JBL sounds better. While the Klipsch definitely had better high frequency response, the JBL's bass was noticeably more powerful. I suppose much of that comes down to personal preference but at a $300 premium for the Klipsch, I think the JBL is a much better buy. If they're priced equally, it's a coin flip.

    Great sound

    Well it's a klipsh let's start with that the sound is amazing the lows off the chain with the powered 10" sub the only thing i didn't like is the mode set up you actually have to read the manual to find out what mode your in it don't display the mode it's a blue green and purple leds I think that tell you what mode your in and the microscopic remote that I have lost like 20x since I made my purchase but I end up finding it so I'm happy other than those problems it's perfect for me with vaulted ceiling it was a pain trying to find a sound bar that will fill the room without losing the sound if that makes any sense but it would all go upstairs lol not with this one so far I love it no regrets!!!

    Sound Quality

    Posted .

    I had a $300 Samsung soundbar 2.1 system and it did not fit the bill at all. This sound bar has a very good sound and has a much lower noise floor than the previous sound bar I had. The subwoofer could be better being a 10" sub but no complaints here for the price paid on this Klipsch system. It only has an optical port and auxiliary connection. All I need for my living room system is the optical from the TV and it is perfect for me. The new models come with multiple HDMI inputs but do not have a 10" sub option. All I needed was optical and Bluetooth connectivity. We can now enjoy music in our living room and movies sound great. I have Klipsch system upstairs for my HiFi listening so this is perfect for the minimal system downstairs for aesthetics.

    Loved the sound coming from the TV it was so much better than the speaker I use to have in my old TV. You know the one that had a 4 inch speaker in the front under the dial to turn to channels. Very old school. Anyway, got these speakers on a sweet heart deal for elite members. You see elite members know about sales a littler early. So when these Klipsch speakers came on sale. I snagged them up. And man, everyone who comes over now thinks we are sitting in a theater. The sound is so rich. the bass feel like I am at the theatre. No turning back these are the best money can buy. You will love them and listen to them. With bluetooth I really like listening to my Sirius XM. Love them

    Great Soundbar

    Posted .

    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.

    So happy I bought this when I did

    This has great sized woofers and tweeters. Size matters with sound so the bigger the better otherwise you can end up having now mid tones or bass tones and tv shows will sound like they are yelling at you. If you have the money for this then I challenge you to see if you can find a soundbar with a 10" wireless woofer and 4-3" woofers and 2-3/4" tweeters that is better. Every soundbar has tiny speakers... The remote has slower response time than I would like. But I love this thing
