We have seen many soundbars and reviewed them closely. But we have never seen anything quite like the Klipsch R-20B. The R-20B is not just a soundbar, it’s a whole new experience. And of course, you have to pay for a whole new experience. That’s why the price. If you need a next-level upgrade that’s actually an upgrade to your TV set’s sound and your overall media consumption experience — this is the soundbar you would purchase. But enough chitchat. Let’s move on to our full Klipsch R20B review, and see why we just had to put it on our list of best soundbars.
Klipsch R20B Overview
Now, let’s get to the meat of the discussion. What makes the Klipsch R-20B so good? Well, there’s plenty. Let’s go over the qualities one by one.
- The aptX is a audio wave coding technology. It helps create sound that’s less lossy. In other words, high-quality music will stream in an almost-lossless way. This quality might not be observable to everyone, but it’s a huge game-changer.
- The 10-inches side-firing subwoofer that you get with the Klipsch R-20B is a beast. This subwoofer doesn’t, however, just serve as a sound output beast. The addition of a subwoofer means you have more control over the music that’s streaming. Direction, position, and proximity can be easily changed to adjust to the room’s configuration or mood.

- The Klipsch R-20B is a 2-way soundbar. It comes with the essential technology to perfectly reproduce the highs. 90 x 90 Tractrix horn delivers the much needed sharpness in the highs of your music. Mid-range divers are also very good. Bass is compensated by the subwoofer, unsurprisingly.
- From laptops to smartphones and tablets to audio players — you can remotely connect your Klipsch R-20B for a better sound through the Bluetooth connectivity if TV is not the only thing you want to boose the sound of.
