The system delivers a full 5.1.4 cinematic experience by bringing sound from all directions, including overhead, to fill the room with clarity, detail, and depth. An included HDMI eARC technology connection as part of HDMI 2.1 allows for compatible TVs to transmit Dolby Atmos from built-in apps. Built-in universal Wi-Fi works with Google Assistant virtual personal assistant, Apple AirPlay 2, and Amazon Alexa for control through any streaming partner. Add Klipsch Surround 3 with Dolby Atmos speakers (sold separately) for dedicated discrete 7.1.4 surround sound. It will be available in the Fall for an MSRP of US$1,499.
A more compact Klipsch Bar 48 (Fall; US$699) with Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual:X technology measures 48" and comes with a 10" wireless subwoofer for 3.1 immersive sound. An included HDMI-eARC connection as part of HDMI 2.1 allows for compatible TVs to transmit Dolby Atmos from built-in apps. It may be paired with Klipsch Surround 3 speakers (sold separately) for 5.1 surround sound.
The Klipsch Bar 44 (Summer; US$499) is the smallest in the series at 44" in length packaged with an 8" subwoofer for an easy-to-use 3.1 sound experience. The bar features Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus enhanced audio decoding, Bluetooth wireless technology connectivity, as well as HMDI-ARC to connect to a TV using a single HDMI cable. It may be paired with Klipsch Surround 3 speakers for 5.1 surround sound.
