    Fine speakers as an alternative to a soundbar with a beautif

    Kris Rietje | 10 October 2020 | Color: Brown | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Sound 'nice'
    • Compact
    • Nice design (real wood veneer)
    • Practical to use
    • Active so no amplifier needed
    • Much low (avoid placement in corner of the room)
    • Source recognition not always optimal
    • Are not 'reference speakers' (no straight or fair representation of the frequency spectrum)

    Do not expect straight, honest reference speakers. These speakers sound 'good' and are a super good hi-fi alternative to a soundbar. Although the tuning also seems to be based on an extra subwoofer (not included), with a connected sub you have a little more control over the lows, it seems. Haven't been able to test that yet. But as long as you don't place the speakers in the corners of a room, you can avoid standing waves. Or you can place a little foam in the bass port of the speaker in the corner for a more balanced sound. They are well tuned for both film and music. A good balance has been found. They look beautiful. The connectivity options are lavish, although unfortunately they lack an Ethernet or WiFi connection. The only downside is that I already switched on the TV twice, and the speakers did not turn on because I had them on another input (such as bluetooth) when I turned them off. Then the speaker does not seem to 'listen' to the hdmi arc input.
    The cork base is also very nice (not for acoustic separation, but does prevent scratches)

    No soundbar needed, great balanced sound!

    Tom | 22 January 2021 | Color: Black | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • No amplifier needed, works well for your record player.
    • Many connection options such as TV, Bluetooth, record player, HDMI arc
    • Beautifully balanced professional sound, replaces a soundbar
    • Very nice sound both music and series
    • Nice retro look
    • Yes, it cannot be expanded with multiple speakers.

    Klipsch has done an update so that you experience less bass. You can also regulate this with the remote control and the bass eq also works well. Note that for a really good experience you have to turn it up a bit in the room where I have them. In terms of sound it is really fantastic, because of the high Hertz range you hear things in your music that you may not have heard before. It is an extremely good experience and a pleasure to listen to music and watch movies with these speakers. If you want to invest in good sound and do not want to be dependent on Sonos, for example, then this is really great. Easily surpasses the Sonos Arc and Sonos 5. In terms of price, you are better off. Not to mention, the retro look is very cool, you can also easily remove the fabric with a magnet if you think that's ugly. The disadvantage is that you have to connect the speakers and that this cable can be on the short side.

    Perfect soundbar replacement with some snags

    Ernst | 22 December 2020 | Color: Black | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Sound at Movies and Series
    • Complete black
    • HDMI ARC
    • (Yet) No EQ management
    • Thick and short cable between boxes
    • No monitor standard screw point
    • No built-in Spotify / Casting options
    • Too much bass for music (fix with EQ)

    I come from a Sonos Playbase, but I was annoyed by the sometimes shrill tones of the speaker. Opted for a little more quality.

    I tested the speakers in two scenarios. 1 as desktop computer speakers and 2 as TV speakers.

    As a desk speaker I found them inconvenient because if you watch YouTube, then turn on a Spotify song, then open Netflix or start a game, the sound level differs quite a bit. So you keep adjusting, which is quite annoying. I don't have this problem with cheaper speakers. They don't have that range and detail, so I notice the volume difference a lot less.

    As a TV speaker, especially for movies, these speakers are phenomenal. You are completely sucked into the movie. The low tones come out well, the middle and high also work well. It really is like being there. The clarity of the sound is a factor of 10 compared to the Sonos. The action sounds in, for example, a movie like Superman is cinema quality or even better in my opinion.

    To play pure music with it, they do well on focal songs, classical and jazz. I notice that when you listen to electronics or techno, the low tones are too strong. This is where Klipsch comes in with an EQ app update. This has yet to be released.

    What can help is connecting an external sub so that the speaker set automatically does the high and mid through the speakers and the low tones through the sub. I'm going to try that myself in the long run; but for now I play music at a slightly lower volume to make sure the bass doesn't take over. What also helps is to put a sock in the port on the back of the speaker, but that is a shame.

    I'm going to buy two more nice stands to get the tweeters at ear height and then I expect them to last about 10 years.

    Would I buy them again? Secure. But the EQ app is necessary, and it will come.

    *I don't know if I'm allowed to mention sonos in my review, if not, change to Soundbar.

    If you are looking for bookshelf speaker with versatility.
    • Very versatile, multiple inputs, all required Outputs incl. sub
    • In-built bluetooth (with Aptx) capabilities
    • Good Build quality and Retro looks for Black Color
    • Sound to Size Ratio is good
    • Mid range is amazing and clear
    • The sound is not a "True" sound. Lot of Post Processing
    • Too much emphasis on Low Frequencies
    • To handle the postprocessing, there is no EQ Mgmt

    Amazing build quality, very versatile with all required / possible inputs and outputs including Sub. Sound, while still amazing to most ears, more emphasis on Low frequencies (especially with Dynamic Bass on) and high frequencies are a little toned-down. The mid on the other hand is as good as it gets, with clarity and soothing to the ears.
    I would recommend and am sure this speaker suits most users and most purposes. Owning this speaker makes you proud.

    Costs what but then you also have something.
    • No need for a subwoofer due to intense bass

    Speakers that have everything you expect.

    Super speakers for a very nice stereo sound
    • Fantastic clear sound with nice deep bass
    • Many connection options
    • HDMI ARC and CEC and thus TV on, speakers on automatically and use TV remote control
    • Nice small size with easy operation
    • Really no subwoofer needed
    • remote control via IR. So should always aim when using
    • price
    • No 5.1 for surround
    • Thick cable (4m) between the speakers

    It is nice that there is an automatic detection of the audio signal and can switch the device on and off. But this can also be a disadvantage if you do not want the device to lose contact with, for example, your smartphone.

    I'm going for passive boxes
    • Super convenient to use.
    • Nice little boxes
    • Good sound provided there is not too much bass in it.
    • The bass should be able to be turned down low. Not so. The bass is really too loud even if you turn it off completely. And I really like a solid bass.

    Can't hear a difference with bass full or off

    Good sound with many connections at a good price
    • Built-in amplifier
    • Beautiful design
    • Price quality
    • HDMI arc
    • Connection options
    • Limited App
    • Not many customization options

    A very good purchase for the price. If you want good sound for music but also sometimes want to enjoy a movie with good sound, this is a bargain. The option to connect a subwoofer is also a nice bonus.
