From the manufacturer
Paul Wilbur Klipsch (PWK) was an American audio pioneer, a true eccentric and a proud member of the engineering and science hall of fame. He gave rise to speaker technologies that would forever impact generations of music lovers. His passion enabled theirs.
The genesis of something, very, very special occurred in a tiny tin shed in Hope, Arkansas in 1946 when Paul W. Klipsch, genius, madman and maverick, designed and hand-built the legendary Klipschorn speaker with the goal of bringing live music into his living room.
The tin shed is now a full-fledged factory with its own cabinet production line and the company’s headquarters have moved to Indianapolis, Indiana; however, the mission remains to create the best speakers.

Upon arrival, I was mesmerized by the sheer mass of the box. This thing is hefty. I was giddy with excitement, because I thought the size and weight of the box would (hopefully) translate to equally impressive sound (boy was I wrong). Unpacking everything without destroying styrofoam took some finesse, but I finally got it all laid out and ready to go. After that, setting it up was a breeze: Plug the HDMI cable into the back of the soundbar, then plug the other end to your TV. Then plug the power cable into the soundbar and the other end into the wall outlet. Finally, plug the subwoofer into the wall outlet. Turn on the soundbar and the subwoofer automatically connects. Go into the TV settings and enable "external speaker" output and you're essentially done. Since I use an Nvidia Shield for streaming, I had to go into the Shield audio settings to tell it I had a Klipsch soundbar, which the Shield correctly identified after the first test signal.
I tested multiple audio and video sources available on my Shield. The highs are bright, as with most Klipsch products. The midrange and vocal dialogue was exceptionally clear. The Cinema 600 has a "Dialogue" option that enhances vocal range, but I found dialogue to be quite clear even with this disabled. The "Surround" mode seemed to merely increase the overall volume. It didn't appreciably expand the soundstage, so if you are expecting a quasi-Atmos experience, then look elsewhere. But this wasn't a huge disappointment for me because that wasn't my goal.
Many reviewers have complained about the remote, but I found it to be quite useful and fully featured. You can change the input source (analogue/digital/TV), toggle the "Dialogue" and "Surround" options and adjust the level of each, adjust the subwoofer level, the overall volume, and toggle a "Night" mode that basically cuts out the subwoofer (presumably so you don't wake up your spouse or disturb others in the next room). The remote is backlit and is motion-sensitive, and comes on when you pick it up. Some reviewers have complained that it is too sensitive and lights up even when not disturbed, but my remote never showed this behavior. It lit up when I picked it up, and turned off shortly after being left alone (and remained off).
Overall I was very impressed by the highs and midrange output. However, I was equally UNIMPRESSED with the bass output. The sub has a 10" woofer, but you wouldn't know that by the output. I have a relatively cheap JBL soundbar with 8" subwoofer in a guest bedroom that puts out more bass than the Cinema 600 sub (seriously). And believe me, I did everything to increase the bass output. My room is carpeted, so I initially figured that was the culprit. I removed a large square shelf from my teakwood media stand and placed the subwoofer on top of the shelf, and the subwoofer output barely improved. I moved the subwoofer (and shelf) to different corners of the room, and still no improvement. I finally placed the subwoofer *inside* the media stand, hoping the solid frame would serve as a secondary enclosure and reverberate...but still no dice. I finally decided that either my subwoofer is defective, or it's not tuned properly. Regardless, it's definitely not worth what I paid for this system. I've heard soundbars from other manufacturers at brick-and-mortar stores that cost half as much but completely blow away the Cinema 600 subwoofer.
As much as I hate to say it, this soundbar is way overrated (at least the subwoofer is). I will play with it some more to see if I can coax more bass from it, but I am not optimistic. I was really, REALLY looking forward to hearing that characteristic full-bodied Klipsch sound that I have grown so much to love, but unfortunately the Cinema 600 does not deliver. Spend your money on something else...basically anything else.
Update: I purchased a Sony HT-G700 3.1 system with Dolby Atmos and DTS for just a little more than what I paid for the Klipsch Cinema 600. The Sony absolutely crushes the Klipsch, and the Sony subwoofer is only half the size of the Klipsch. I think the Klipsch sub that I received is defective, but I don't feel like exchanging it, so the Cinema 600 is going back to Amazon.
Another commonly mentioned quibble that I definitely agree with is the lack of a display. Having a few led lights in the front isn't intuitive at all and you can't tell what mode the system is in from your seat. Also, they placed buttons and a few indicator lights on the top of the sound bar including the surround indicator, none of which are visible from your seat. Let's hope they'll also be adding this information and the ability to control the soundbar to the app in the future.
Pairing with an LG oled using hdmi arc was simple and easy as was pairing the soundbar with the included sub. The lg remote was immediately able to control the soundbar volume with no issues.
As a 3.1 system, vocals and dialog come through clear and with authority. The center channel does add quite a lot over the cinama 400 in my opinion. Movie watching is pleasant when using the simulated surround with surprisingly good front Soundstage and channel separation which you don't often find in a sound bar. The 10" subwoofer is quite powerful and packs plenty of punch. The subwoofer is probably the most important part of a sound system such as this due to the smaller drivers used in the soundbar itself so having a capable subwoofer is a must for a quality system. Bass is highly affected by your room and the subs placement in your room. Taking the extra time to learn about proper sub placement will pay huge dividends in the sound quality you will achieve from your overall system. I suggest watching a video or two to get a idea of how to properly place your sub. If you're finding the bass is weak or boomy, it's highly likely due to where you've placed the subwoofer. Don't skip this important step, your ears will thank you.
I added the Surround 3s to the Cinema 600 to complete a 5.1 set up. Overall, having true discreet surround channels beats simulated surround for effects hands down, especially in a less than perfect room. Having them pair wirelessly is a huge plus for those not able to run wires.
As with the sub, pairing was easy. Volume control of each speaker was less than intuitive due to the reliance on the led lights on the front of the soundbar, but doable. Once connected, however, I found the Surround 3 only ok sound quality wise and underwhelming given their price point of $250/pair. The cinama 600 soundbar gives a nice rich full sound with decent mids and highs. The Surround 3's don't quite match up to the quality of sound coming out the front Soundstage. Tonally they are somewhat flat and a bit hollow sounding, lacking any sort of depth with mediocre highs and midrange with zero bass. Generally proper surrounds are timbre matched to the front speakers. This is not quite the case here which is more of an issue with music vs. movies. I understand money went into each speaker having their own amplifier, but the sound coming from their single 3" cone I'd equate to maybe a $50 speakers at best.
Should you get the Surround 3s to expand your system to a discreet 5.1 system? If you can get them on sale, they definitely add an extra dimension over the simulated surround effects on the Cinama 600 soundbar. They make the content far more immersive and are suitable for the lighter duty of movie effects found in 5.1 content so I would indeed highly recommend adding them for any movie buff. In my opinion, they detract from music listening as they just don't match up well musically to the soundbar and shouldn't be used when listening to music.
I would certainly classify this soundbar as a movie first and music second soundbar. Movie watching is excellent for the price point and music is enjoyable but will not match most decent 2 channel systems.
