Klipsch's New Cinema Line Brings 8K Passthrough Home

The smaller models still pack a punch

Speaker company Klipsch is bringing home the theater experience by launching four new soundbars, with the Cinema 1200 and Cinema 800 models leading the pack.

The Cinema 1200 and 800 products offer 8K HDR passthrough and decoding for 7.1.4 channel Dolby Atmos. That means the two soundbars can accept 8K quality audio from a source with very little impact on the sound quality. The 1200 model uses its 1,200W of power across a 5.1.4. Dolby Atmos system and a 12-inch wireless subwoofer. The 800 model spreads its 800W of system power across a 3.1 Dolby Atmos system and a 10-inch wireless subwoofer

Both the Cinema 1200 and 800 have two HDMI inputs, an HDMI-eARC input for high quality audio, and are Bluetooth enabled. With these features, the soundbars can further expand an existing home theater system and connect with smart home products like the Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Spotify Connect.

The Cinema 1200 is 54-inches long with a depth of around 6-inches and costs $1,699. The Cinema 800 is 48-inches long and roughly 3-inches in depth, and it comes with an $879 price tag. 

Finally, Klipsch rounds out its new soundbar line with the Cinema 600 and 400 soundbars. The Cinema 600 has a 3.1 channel audio system with a 10-inch wireless subwoofer and the Cinema 400 has a 2.1 system with an 8-inch subwoofer.

Both of these smaller soundbars support Bluetooth, Optical Digital, and have an HDMI ARC input, but neither one has dual HDMI inputs like the bigger models.

This pair is meant for more modest home theaters and is more budget friendly. The Cinema 600 is 45-inches long with a depth of around 3-inches and costs $499. The Cinema 400 is 40-inches long with a similar depth and retails for $299.
