Review: Klipsch HD Theater 500

Wired
9 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Your meal plans may be more Top Ramen than Top Chef these days, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice dinner music too. Klipsch understands. The high end audio company is now offering three “recession-proof” speaker sets that can deliver top shelf 5.1 sound even as your 401K bottoms out.
  • Pros: Sparkling 5.1-surround sound for small(ish) spaces. Spartan aesthetic also looks slick. Easy, breezy setup.
  • Cons: Not an experienced audiophile? Tweaking the subwoofer can be more taxing than a severe IRS audit. 0 is kind of a lot, even though it’s Klipsch.
