Indianapolis, Ind.

The system delivers a full 5.1.4 cinematic experience by bringing sound to life from all directions, including overhead, to fill the room with astonishing clarity, detail and depth. An included HDMI®-eARC technology connection as part of HDMI 2.1 allows for compatible TVs to transmit Dolby Atmos from built-in apps. Built-in universal Wi-Fi works with Google AssistantTM virtual personal assistant, Apple® AirPlay® 2, and Amazon® Alexa® for control through any streaming partner. Add Klipsch Surround 3 with Dolby Atmos speakers (sold separately) for dedicated discrete 7.1.4 surround sound. Available Fall 2020, US MSRP $1,499.


A more compact Klipsch Bar 48 with Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual:X technology measures 48” and comes with a 10” wireless subwoofer for 3.1 immersive sound. An included HDMI-eARC connection as part of HDMI 2.1 allows for compatible TVs to transmit Dolby Atmos from built-in apps. It may be paired with Klipsch Surround 3 speakers (sold separately) for 5.1 surround sound. Available Fall 2020, US MSRP $699.


The Klipsch Bar 44 is the smallest in the series at 44” in length packaged with an 8” subwoofer for an easy-to-use 3.1 sound experience. The bar features Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus enhanced audio decoding, Bluetooth® wireless technology connectivity, as well as HMDI-ARC to connect to a TV using a single HDMI cable. It may be paired with Klipsch Surround 3 speakers for 5.1 surround sound. Available Summer 2020, US MSRP $499.

I was wondering if the number was referring to Length of the Soundbar similar to what vizio does and it seems it is which is good meaning that if that is indeed a 54" soundbar its the second one I am personally aware of other then the old 54" by Vizio before the decided to shrink the bars down. I personally own a 40" Vizio SB4051-CO here and its paired with a 47" Vizio TV and fits perfectly with the width but if I had a larger TV I would indeed want a longer soundbar and its good to see more OEMs putting them out.

Pointed this out in another thread, but these were announced at CES 2019, they never came out

Oh cool, Klipsch Re-announced the same 54A soundbar that was supposed to release, “in the fall.” Now they say again, “in the fall.” 2 entire years later. I’m still very interested but I may just buy the new LG instead.

Really?

My impression of sound bars in general is that they're "throw away" tech, i.e. a $1 Bluetooth chip breaks, and the sound bar transforms from cool to junk.

Save money, buy a used pair of Klipsch Heresy II's for $450 and an inexpensive receiver, quality stuff that will work forever.

Lol. What stops the “$1 Bluetooth chip,” on the “cheap receiver” from breaking? I do hate when that happens though on soundbars, if only there was a cable method you could use instead?
