HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) and eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) type inputs are used for connecting your powered loudspeakers to a compatible TV. Besides providing a high bandwidth for data transfer, this connection also lets you control the volume level of your speakers using your TV remote which turns your speakers into a viable sound bar alternative.
Contrary to sound bars, the HDMI type inputs are not very common on powered stereo speakers but major manufacturers such as Klipsch and KEF slowly increases the number of models that features this type of connection. Currently there are 10 powered speakers with HDMI inputs in our database. While nine of these are bookshelf speakers, KEF LS60 Wireless is the only floorstanding/tower speaker in our list.
