Energy Introduces First Soundbar in Connoisseur® Series

The Energy Connoisseur CS-30 soundbar enters the prestigious speaker lineup offering users sonic accuracy and dramatic spatial reproduction of the live concert experience.

INDIANAPOLIS (August 26, 2014) - Energy, a Klipsch Group, Inc. brand and industry leader in audio engineering and development, today announces the launch of its Energy Connoisseur CS-30 soundbar. The brand's first soundbar in the Connoisseur® Series instantly upgrades television sound with undeniable power, the convenience of plug n' play functionality, Dolby® Digital decoding, 3D surround mode and streaming capabilities using Bluetooth® wireless technology.


The Energy Connoisseur CS-30 soundbar enters the prestigious speaker lineup offering users sonic accuracy and dramatic spatial reproduction of the live concert experience. The soundbar's acoustic performance stays true to Energy sound principles, presenting flat on-axis frequency response, wide and constant dispersion, as well as minimal levels of distortion and resonance.

The two-way soundbar utilizes premium drivers and two lightweight ¾-inch textile dome tweeters to distinctive high-frequency detail while two 3-inch polypropylene woofers round out the enhanced sound with crisp vocals and dynamic soundtracks. The soundbar delivers simulated 3D surround mode for immersive listening. Included with the soundbar is a commanding 8-inch side-firing wireless subwoofer that is housed in a MDF cabinet with a slot-port design for deep, powerful bass. The subwoofer pairs automatically with the soundbar given its sophisticated wireless technology.

The Energy Connoisseur CS-30 soundbar is compatible with most Bluetooth® wireless enabled devices and also offers aptX™ audio coding technology for lossless, high-quality music streaming. Its Dolby Digital decoder allows the soundbar to automatically reproduce detailed sounds no matter what format of sound is coming from the TV's output.

Removable feet and included keyhole mounts provide placement flexibility for the soundbar to be mounted to a wall or rest in front of the TV.

An included digital optical cable connects a TV's digital output to the back of the soundbar. For the few TV's without an optical audio output, there is a two-channel analog input.

The Energy Connoisseur CS-30 soundbar retails for $599.99 (U.S. MSRP) and is available through authorized Energy retailers. For more information on the Energy brand and its product offering, visit energyspeakers.com.
