About the Klipsch Reference RSB-8

Front-row TV sound, and more

The Klipsch Reference RSB-8 sound bar delivers the same exciting, immediate soundstage as its sibling, the RSB-6 — but this one has some extra tricks up its sleeve. I raved about how Klipsch's built-in drivers and wireless subwoofer "turned our sprawling, sound-swallowing vendor training room into a lively, intimate space." By adding a versatile wireless sound technology called DTS Play-Fi, this system is capable of delivering an even more riveting experience.

Front-row TV sound, and more

The Klipsch Reference RSB-8 sound bar delivers the same exciting, immediate soundstage as its sibling, the RSB-6 — but this one has some extra tricks up its sleeve. I raved about how Klipsch's built-in drivers and wireless subwoofer "turned our sprawling, sound-swallowing vendor training room into a lively, intimate space." By adding a versatile wireless sound technology called DTS Play-Fi, this system is capable of delivering an even more riveting experience.

Full wireless surround sound

Using DTS Play-Fi (also called Klipsch Stream), you can turn this bar/sub combo into a full wireless 5.1 surround system. The bar acts as the front speakers. A pair of Play-Fi speakers can be placed behind you and used as wireless surround speakers. 

I've watched a movie using Play-Fi's surround feature, and it sounded as smooth and reliable as a wired system. No hiccups or delays through the entire flick. 

Control music in every room

Play-Fi also lets you play music wirelessly on this sound bar, and other Play-Fi speakers throughout your home. It all starts by downloading the Klipsch Stream mobile app — free for both Apple® and Android™ devices.

The app gives you access to your music downloads — including high-quality lossless files. You can also dial up songs from music services like Spotify®, Pandora®, and SiriusXM, plus over 37,000 internet radio stations. You can send the same song to other Play-Fi devices or play a different song in every room. You can even mix and match Play-Fi devices from different brands.

    Surround Sound

    Soundbar w/ Tractrix Horn Technology: The Klipsch RSB-8's soundbar speaker is equipped with two 0.75" horn-loaded textile dome tweeters with 90° x 90° Tractrix horns that deliver crisp highs, plus dual 2.5" fiber composite woofers for dynamic midrange and enhanced vocals. By incorporating highly efficient horn-loaded technology into the soundbar, all sounds are more detailed, dialog clarity is significantly improved, and overall output is maximized to cover even the largest listening areas. The tweeters and woofers are bi-amplified and utilize a DSP-controlled crossover network.

    Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The Klipsch RSB-8 includes a wireless powered subwoofer with a 6.5" down-firing fiber composite woofer in a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing slot-port. The powered sub delivers deep, punchy bass to your movie and music soundtracks. The sophisticated 2.4 GHz technology automatically connects the soundbar and subwoofer together wirelessly; up to 50'. The wireless powered sub's cabinet features a black wood-grain vinyl finish and rubber feet. The wireless powered subwoofer has independent volume control from the included IR remote control.

    Dolby Audio Decoder: The Klipsch RSB-8 incorporates Dolby Audio for rich, clear, powerful sound. Its built-in Dolby Audio decoder allows the Klipsch soundbar system to automatically reproduce detailed, high-output sound in almost any size room no matter what format of sound (including Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2ch PCM) is coming from your TV's or Blu-ray player's output.

    Sound Modes: The Klipsch RSB-8 soundbar & subwoofer system offers 3 sound modes to choose from - Virtual Surround, Voice Enhance, and Night. The Virtual Surround mode is designed to simulate the effect of a surround sound system. The Voice Enhance mode increases dialogue volume for enhanced vocal clarity without increasing ambient sounds. Night mode adjusts the system's dynamic range for quieter listening environments.

    HDMI 2.0: The Klipsch RSB-8's soundbar is outfitted with a HDMI 2.0 input and HDMI 2.0 ARC output. The system's HDMI connectivity supports 4K pass-through and is HDCP 2.2 compliant.

    • 4K Video Pass-Through: The RSB-8 lets you maintain 4K quality from source to screen by allowing 4K video to "pass-through" and be displayed on a 4K TV or projector, without compromising image quality. Giving you the pure 4K experience makes this system the perfect partner for 4K-capable TVs and Ultra-HD Blu-ray players. 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signal are also supported (there is no upscaling).
    • HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by the system's HDMI input and output. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with Ultra HD Blu-ray players, 4K Satellite/Cable providers, and 4k online video services.
    • ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature of the system's HDMI output allows audio to be sent from your ARC compatible TV to the soundbar system through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your TV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.
    Note: The soundbar's HDMI input does not support HDR (High Dynamic Range) video

    Digital & Analog Inputs: In addition to HDMI connectivity, the Klipsch RSB-8 offers an optical (toslink) digital input and a stereo minijack (3.5mm) analog input. Using the digital optical connection, the soundbar accepts sound from both the TV and any device (such as a DVD/Blu-ray player or Cable/Satellite receiver) hooked up to the TV. The system supports Dolby Digital & 2ch PCM audio through its optical digital input.

    Note: The digital optical output terminals of many newer flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, HDMI inputs, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via stereo RCA or minijack.

    Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Klipsch RSB-8 features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming of stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows PC/Phone, Mac computer/laptop, and more to the Klipsch soundbar & subwoofer system. From the system's remote control you can operate basic playback functions like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track. You'll continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to control advanced music playback functions and to view song/artist information. A simple single button press will pair your device with the RSB-8 system. Once paired, the RSB-8 speaker system will automatically re-connect to your device when within range (up to 33').

    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Klipsch RSB-8.

    Remote Control: The RSB-8 comes with a credit-card size IR remote control for wireless operation of the soundbar & subwoofer system. The remote also operates basic playback functions like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track for Bluetooth-connected devices. You can also program the Klipsch RSB-8's Volume Up/Down and Mute functions into your existing TV remote for further ease-of-operation.

    HDMI-CEC: HDMI-CEC allows you to easily manage and operate the RSB-8 system along with an HDMI-CEC compatible TV, Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and/or cable box with a single remote; when all components are connected via HDMI.

    Mounting Options: The soundbar speaker can simply be positioned on a shelf or stand, below or above your TV. It can also be wall-mounted using its dual keyhole slots and included template (mounting screws not included). Because the powered sub is wireless it can be positioned almost anywhere up to 50' from the soundbar speaker. It is recommended that the sub be positioned on the same wall as the soundbar.

    Power Requirements: Both, the active soundbar & wireless powered sub will require AC power.

    Wireless Multiroom Audio

    DTS Play-Fi Wireless Technology: Klipsch's RSB-8 soundbar speaker system employ DTS Play-Fi wireless technology for wireless sound that is reliable and high-quality. DTS Play-Fi combines DTS audio and WiFi wireless technology to wirelessly stream high-definition "lossless" audio with no impact on sound quality. DTS Play-Fi will stream pure, bit-for-bit, lossless audio, for uncompromised quality sound; up to 16-bit/48kHz. DTS Play-Fi has a range of up to 100' from your wireless router.

    Note: All DTS Play-Fi enabled products work seamlessly together, so there's no hassle adding more speakers, or choosing more than one audio brand like Klipsch, Martin Logan, Definitive Technology, Polk Audio, Phorus, Wren, etc..) in your home.

    Wireless Network Connection: The Klipsch RSB-8 soundbar speaker system uses your home's network for whole-house audio entertainment. The RSB-8 connects to your home's wireless network via WiFi (802.11 b/g/n; 2.4/5GHz); a dual-band "N" or better router is recommended for the most reliable wireless network connection.

    Simple Setup: There are two methods for connecting the DTS Play-Fi soundbar speaker system to your home network. You can perform WiFi setup via the free DTS Play-Fi on your Apple iOS/Android mobile device or Windows PC (this setup allows you to connect multiple Play-Fi device at once to your network). You can also use the WPS button on the soundbar speaker if your wireless router supports WPS (this setup only allows you to connect one Play-Fi device at a time to your network).

    Klipsch Stream App: Download the free Klipsch Stream App onto your Apple iOS (8.0+) device or Android (4.0+) smartphone/tablet for easy and convenient management of your music from your mobile device. From the app you can initially set up the RSB-8 soundbar speaker system, as well as add, link, and control all your DTS Play-Fi speakers. You'll be able stream music directly from the system's built-in music online services, or music on your mobile device or computer to multiple DTS Play-Fi enabled speakers through out your home. The app lets you browse your music by artist, album, genre, or title; and provides album art. You can choose to play the same music in each zone or a different song in each room.

    Variety Of Sources: The RSB-8 soundbar speaker with DTS Play-Fi supports a variety of music sources.

    • Mobile Device (Apple iOS + Android): You are able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps on your Apple iOS (8.0+) or Android (4.0+) device to the soundbar speaker system through the free Klipsch Stream App.
    • Online Music Services: From the Klipsch Stream App on your mobile device or computer, you can share and listen to Pandora, Spotify Connect, SiriusXM, TIDAL, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Napster, and Internet Radio. While the Klipsch Stream App is free, not all the online music services are (subscription & purchasing fees may apply).
    • Computer Audio: The RSB-8 soundbar is DLNA compliant for playback of various music files stored on your Windows PC (7/8) or DLNA-certified NAS drives connected to your home network. MAC OSX computers and laptops require third party software to be visible on the network (Twonky, Plex, Servio etc.) as they do not support DLNA. Use the DTS Play-Fi app on your mobile device or computer to access these music files.

    Supported Music Files: The RSB-8 soundbar speaker & DTS Play-Fi support music formats such as MP3, AAC, FLAC, and WAV. The system will recognize music files up to 24-bit/192kHz and wirelessly stream these files at up to 16-bit/48kHz (CD quality sound). Some down-sampling may occur to ensure virtually lossless distribution throughout a home network.

    Critical Listening Mode: For those who wish to hear high resolution audio as originally intended, Critical Listening mode will enable native rendering of high resolution files up to 24-bit/96kHz, with no down-sampling or network synchronization adjustment. In this way, audio files retain their original audio integrity. Critical Listening Mode is only available on one DTS Play-Fi speaker and not supported for multiroom audio distribution.

    Multiroom Audio: You can play the same source in each zone or a different song in each room. Eight separate wireless source devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.), each with its own source, are supported simultaneously and any wireless source device can stream to eight DTS Play-Fi playback devices. Due to the bandwidth limitations of most wireless networks, no more than 16 wireless DTS Play-Fi products on a single WiFi network at one given time is recommended. Supported multiroom audio sources include -

    • Apple iOS & Android devices with the Klipsch Stream App installed.
    • Select DTS Play-Fi online music services and internet radio.
    • Music library from your Windows  PC or Mac computer.
    Note: Bluetooth, HDMI, Optical digital, and Analog input sources are not supported for multiroom audio.

    Alexa Compatible (future firmware update): The Klipsch Stream series of products will soon be able to support Amazon Alexa voice-commands allowing your to control your Klipsch Stream speakers, soundbars, and multiroom audio systems from any Alexa-enabled device, such as the Amazon Echo or Dot (sold separately). The Klipsch Stream series of products will require a free firmware update (available in 2018 - no exact ETA) through the Klipsch Stream app to enable functionality of Alexa voice control.

    We had a previous soundbar from Klipsch and love it. Time for a new one. [ Robert  Jul 13, 2019 ]
    I had an older (similar) iteration to this sound bar in our old home and loved it. Had the power to shake the nails out of the neighbor's walls, but maintained a great balance of highs, mids, and lows. Looking forward to enjoying the extra streaming and play-fi features in the RSB-8. [ Christopher  Jun 13, 2019 ]

    Cam, Crutchfield specialist, helped me narrow it down to two - the Ymaha YAS-207 and this Klipsch RSB-8, based on our TV listening preferences and the room size and type. Cam recommended the Klipsch for better sound quality, even though I was concerned with reader's comments about the remote and software upgrades. I know I can count on Crutchfield for support if I need it when it arrives. [ Ralph  Jan 25, 2019 ]

    Based on my "want list" description for a rich sounding sound bar/sub, this was recommended to me by Travis/Crutchfield rep. The fact that it was on sale was attractive, but wasn't the decision factor in making this purchase. I trusted Crutchfield's guidance. Perhaps it might make more sense to ask me this question after I receive and hook it up . . . just saying . . . [ Roseanna  Nov 18, 2018 ]

    6 questions already asked

    I have about 10000 mp3s on my android phone none of which was downloaded legally (I don't use apps like Spotify, Pandora etc). Would there be a way to listen to my mp3 collection via this soundbar? Thx
    [ sammy  Jun 25, 2019 ]
    5 answers
    I have been able to connect via bluetooth to listen to music and my smart tv will let me listen to my music from my network drive. The soundbar is supposed to support a wifi connection for listening to music but I've never gotten it to work. If you're just going from a phone BT is probably the way to go.
    [ Joe  Jun 25, 2019 ]
    I forgot about blue tooth, So if you can pair your mp3s via bluetooth your good too go !
    [ HARRY  Jun 25, 2019 ]
    I actually have a RSB14 . So I don't use a mp3s player. My unit has a rca port & a USB port along with HDMI ports ! So if a rca hack or USB port is compatible with a mp3s ,You should be able ?Contact Klipsch support, I have found they have knowledgeable team !
    [ HARRY  Jun 25, 2019 ]
    Yes, I have a Samsung tablet and a phone, both have all my music, ripped, downloaded or bought over the years. I connect my RSB-8 & two Polk SB-1 speakers over WIFI, using the PlayFi, (Polk, Klipsch, PlayFi app) and play the music through the samsung music app that the playfi app knows is there. I also have more music on a 4 tb wifi drive that I play through my tablet. The system works awesome. Note: PlayFi has upgraded my speakers & apps 3 times since new. Best to You! Regards
    [ James  Jun 25, 2019 ]
    You can connect using Bluetooth to play the music on your phone
    [ Marcelo  Jun 25, 2019 ]
    Can this bar and sub be used in conjunction wired rear speakers?
    [ Mike  May 07, 2019 ]

    Not to my knowledge. You can pair it with 2 RW-1 for a 5.1 system. But I found that it is not as good as a wired system.
    [ Trent  May 07, 2019 ]
    How does this sound bar compare to the Polk audio How does this sound bar compare to the Denon Heos sound bar thats 100 dollars more?

    Not sure which Polk sound bar you are referring too. I tried a Polk but then decided to go with the Denon and I'm extremely happy with the product. Great features and awesome sound.
    [ GARY D  Jan 18, 2019 ]
    I have no idea as I've have not compared the two. I am very pleased with it - the sound is great.
    [ BILL  Jan 18, 2019 ]
    The main issues I have with the bar is the remote isn't infrared, it uses RF which any interference messes the signal up. I use a Logitech remote and it doesn't always come on. I also have an issue the the Playfi. I think the Playfi system is garbage. We use it a lot and it stops playing all the time with any type of music source. Otherwise I have had many different brand sound bars and it projects sound very well and the sub is very outstanding. It does a great job switching between movies or tv for sound.
    [ shawn  Jan 18, 2019 ]
    Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

    Does HDMI Passthrough support HDR10 and 60FPS 12bit Picture?
    [ Dustin  Apr 10, 2018 ]
    1 answer
    While the HDMI connectivity does support 4K video pass-thru and HDCP 2.2, it does not support any HDR metadata. So, you would need to connect any external HDR capable video sources directly to the TV and provide the audio back to the Klipsch via optical or HDMI ARC. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service:

    Does this have a physical power button to turn it off and on? If I turn this off, will this affect the other aspects of the sound bar any way? I would only need the sub on for 5-10% of the time. Thank you.

    No physical power button on either the soundbar or the sub. There is a "Night mode" setting on the remote that will disable the sub.

    The remote has a power on/off button. From most sources the sound bar will automatically turn on when it detects an audio signal and will automatically turn off after approximately 30 minutes of no audio signal.

    How is the app? I have a Yamaha soundbar and the application is so bad, makes me want to look for a different brand. Thank you.

    The app is fine. I found it worked better on IPad than on Kindle Fire.

    Klipsch offers the free Klipsch Stream App (available in iTunes & Google Play store) for easy and convenient management of your music from your mobile device. From the app you can initially set up the RSB-8 soundbar system; as well as stream music directly from the built-in music services, or music on your mobile device/computer to multiple DTS Play-Fi enabled speakers throughout your home. For more specific details and reviews of the app itself, please refer to the Apple and/or Android App store.
