Its technology has been used in some of the world’s best sounding movie theatres, and now American Hi-Fi outfit Klipsch, celebrating its 75th anniversary, is debuting a trio of premium Dolby Atmos soundbars that borrow heavily on this horn-loaded heritage.
Favouring classic wooden construction over plastic, these new Klipsch Cinema soundbars look and sound much like the brand’s acclaimed reference Hi-Fi speakers. And for deep, impactful bass, they’re partnered with large theatrical subwoofers.
Topping the line is the Klipsch Cinema 1200 (pictured above), a 1372mm wide Atmos bar with 76.2mm upfiring height drivers, three forward facing channels, a 12-inch 800W wireless subwoofer, and wireless Dolby Atmos certified surround speakers, for genuinely immersive audio.
With a 1200W powerplant, this £1,449 7.1.4 configured beast is designed for larger living rooms. It boasts three HDMIs, with 8k-capable HDR pass-through, Dolby Vision support and eARC TV compatibility. It works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Spotify Connect.
Dropping down in size (but not by much), there’s the £899 Klipsch Cinema 800. This immersive Atmos offering measures 1219mm and comes with a 10-inch 500W wireless subwoofer. Again, it sports three HDMIs with 8k HDR and Dolby Vision support, plus eARC connectivity.

If you want to build up the system for full surround, you can pair the 800 with Klipsch Surround 3 wireless speakers (sold separately for £265 per pair). It also works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Spotify Connect.
Also new, but lacking Dolby Atmos, are the Klipsch Cinema 600 and Klipsch 400.
The 600 bar measures 1143mm, and is partnered with a 10-inch 500W wireless sub. It comes with Bluetooth connectivity, and like its larger stablemates can be paired with those Klipsch Surround 3 wireless rears. It’s priced at £549.
The £379 Cinema 400 is the smallest in the new series, at just 116mm. It comes with a compact 8-inch wireless sub with 400w amplification, and Bluetooth connectivity. For more visit Klipsch.com.
