Klipsch's tiny surround package offers powerful performance


The Klipsch Reference Theater Pack may not be the cheapest of 5.1 speaker systems but it offers a very agreeable sound from a tiny footprint.

The Klipsch Reference Theater Pack offers impressive sound for such a tiny footprint, but lacks cinematic power compared to bigger-box speakers.

Klipsch Reference Series Cinema 8 System (black)

Treble is ever so slightly bright.

Klipsch's most affordable Reference speaker set combines small stylish looks with great big home-theater sound.
