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.
