Features

I faced with the fact that Klipsch R-10B is a powerful (channel configuration 2.1) device with a fairly good-sounding subwoofer, the necessary set of inputs and built-in Bluetooth. Built-in surround decoding includes Dolby Digital (but not DTS, Digital Theater System) technology and can come from a TV tuner or from applications on smart TV. The device also supports wireless Bluetooth reception with the ability to compress the APTX codec to improve sound. To use Dolby Digital processing in the soundbar, I also watched some DVDs and Blu-Ray with a player that output Dolby Digital in another stereo mode, or surround, converted to 2.1-channel.

Design and build

Delivered in a sealed plastic case 40 inches wide. The external subwoofer for sound output has 8-inch audio control devices in a fiberboard housing with a slotted connector. Both are perforated with metal grills. The soundbar has two 0.75-inch tweeters with a fabric dome and two 3-inch cone-shaped tweeters, the same amplification system can be found in a pair of two-way satellite speakers. All Klipsch speakers are equipped with 90-degree rotating Klipsch Tractrix horns.

Connectivity

Connections are limited to optical digital and stereo analog connectors. Or you can receive a signal from the TV, which will serve as an A / V switch of the system. You may need to turn off the TV speakers or activate the optical output of the TV in the TV menu. Connecting video via HDMI, or in another way, is not possible.

Setup

As a connoisseur of sound equipment, in this case I am surprised that the audio / video setup can be as hassle-free as in the case of the Klipsch R-10B soundbar. I connected one optical digital cable and two power cables. The panel made friends with a wireless subwoofer without my participation. The Bluetooth connection was only to select Klipsch as the playback device in iTunes. This setting is for those who hate long settings.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Horn high-frequency amplifiers that are of great quality
  • Bluetooth receiver with support for aptX codec
