MAKE A SOUND CHOICE FOR YOUR HOME THEATRE
If installing a full home theatre sound system is out of your budget, this might be the answer.
The Klipsch Reference RSB-11 Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer is designed to provide cinema-quality sound and connects quickly to a television, regardless of what format of sound is coming from the TV’s output.
The built-in Dolby Digital Decoder takes over and allows the soundbar to automatically reproduce detailed, highoutput sound.
The sub woofer can be placed anywhere through the home, connecting wirelessly to the soundbar so you can decide where you want the boom to come from.
While I’m no audio expert, I do have a father-in-law who is obsessed with home audio.
After 15 years of marriage I have come to know my Dolby Digital from my DTS 5.1.
I’ve been blown out of my lounge chair during the opening credits of a movie from my FIL’s sound system numerous times. Almost as many times as I’ve said: “Can you please turn it down?” when we’ve stayed with them and I feared for the health of my eardrums.
So when I connected the Klipsch reference system — which was quite simple and it comes with its own optical cable — I was impressed with the sound and the distance it travelled over our large living area.
With the lights down and a bowl of popcorn on my lap, it did feel like I was in Event Cinemas (except for the size of the screen, of course). Now I just need a recliner and a bigger TV.
The Klipsch Reference RSB-11 Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer is available at Harvey Norman for $1199.
