Klipsch’s Bar 40 does its namesake proud when it comes to both style and sound, with a great look and impressively clear performance. But those seeking loads of features may want to look elsewhere. We’ll walk you through everything in this review so you can make the best decision for your home theater.

Right out of the box, the Bar 40 makes a statement, with muscular twin Tractrix Horns (a signature Klipsch design touch) flanking a sleek, fabric-sheathed centerpiece made of MDF wood in place of plastic. Brushed aluminum panels on the top complete the package for a striking look that still stays out of the way in most setups. In a segment in which every new model seems to be racing toward design anonymity, it’s a refreshing change.

The excellently designed Bar 40 loads up fewer features than I’d expect at its price point. The system offers an ample collection of inputs, including HDMI ARC, Optical, 3.5mm, and Bluetooth streaming, and even a subwoofer output so you can swap in your choice of wired subs.

    This sound bar is shit, I've had it for 4 months and there's major bugs with it. On top of that, Klipsch tech support is even worse shit. 5 requests for support and only one email back saying they were busy and would get to it. When, probably neveruary…..

    I have an SB3 which sounds great. It’s on 34” target metal stands corner loaded but out enough to get some depth. The tv is on a telescopic mount above. It has a great 10” sub which I have hidden but arriving time coincident because of its placement. No adjustments needed. It doesn’t sound boxy because of its well designed asymmetrical cabinet. Just great simple engineering. My only criticism would be the narrow stereo image endemic to soundbars. It was a solid purchase and opened my eyes to the dynamic Klipsch sound. I don’t see how you can do better for the price and ease of use.

    Soundbars are fine for bedrooms and small apartments. And for people who are not into a true theater type sound. I have a Bose Solo 5 for my vacation condo and it's fine for that. But I wouldn't want it in my home living room.
