Let’s face it – unless you’ve got a recent, souped-up, top of the line Philips or Panasonic OLED TV, each with a fancy built in audio system, the sound quality from your television is probably going to be a bit lacking. If you don’t fancy forking out for a surround sound system, the answer is usually to invest in a soundbar to boost your set’s audio credentials.

But Klipsch, with its soon-to-be-released The Fives speakers, is looking to offer an alternative. Rather than popping a soundbar in front of your TV, what if instead you had a pair of active speakers either side of it? And what if they were equipped with a HDMI-ARC connection, specifically designed for making the most out of whatever you’re watching on TV.

Offering genuine stereo separation and the promise of being able to control them using just your TV remote thanks to that HDMI-Arc connection, the Klipsch could be the versatile, relatively-subtle-looking lift your TV’s audio needed.

Though the point of TV-focussed separates may not seem immediately obvious, there’s lots to like about the Klipsch The Fives. With wooden cabinets set to be offered in matte black or woodgrain effects, and with a choice of fabric or metallic front plates, the speakers are built with good looking interiors in mind.
