Klipsch's latest sound bar lets its users bring its iconic, horn-loaded sound technology into their living rooms. The new Klipsch Cinema 400 Sound Bar is a 2.1 channel auditory experience packed within its 40-inch wooden body, and a separate 8-inch wireless subwoofer.

Among its several features, the Cinema 400 (101.4 x 7.3 x 8.6cm) offers plug-and-play setup via HDMI output or optical cable. If you want minimal cables, it supports HDMI ARC as well. Inside the soundbar is a built-in Dolby Audio decoder with support for Dolby Atmos sound.

The separate 8-inch subwoofer (30.2 x 41 x 41cm) is just as easy to set up, since it uses 2.4GHz wireless technology to link up with the soundbar. The additional subwoofer output on the bar offers additional support for a second subwoofer or an entirely different subwoofer of your choice.

Unlike other mainstream sound bars that use a plastic or aluminium frame, the Klipsch Cinema 400 is crafted out of wood. Despite its unique style, it measures just 2.8 inches tall (~7.3cm), making it a relatively easy fit underneath most TVs.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Klipsch product if it doesn't have its iconic sound signature. The Cinema 400 has two 1-inch tweeters with 90° x 90° Tractrix horns, and two 3-inch woofers for mid-range frequencies. The horn-loaded tweeters are what gives the soundbar that Klipsch experience.

Finally, it supports wall-mounting since it comes with a wall-mount template and keyhole mounting clip with its compatible screw.

Originally, the Klipsch Cinema 400 Sound Bar retails at S$549, but it seems like the distributor here is doing a launch promotion with the product until further notice. The soundbar has a promotional price of S$499 on Shopee, along with an additional S$100 off upon trading-in an old soundbar.
