Klip­sch has re­leased three pow­ered au­dio sys­tems that use real wood ve­neers and tac­tile spun cop­per switches and knobs and can play mu­sic streamed from any Blue­toothe­quipped de­vice. ‘ The Klip­sch Her­itage Wire­less series of pow­ered au­dio sys­tems blends the acous­tics and clas­sic de­sign legacy of Paul W. Klip­sch with the lat­est tech­nolo­gies avail­able to­day,’ said Ralph Grundl, of Qual­ifi, which dis­trib­utes Klip­sch in Aus­tralia.

The Klip­sch One is a 2.1 bi-am­pli­fied stereo sys­tem that has two 57mm di­am­e­ter full-range driv­ers and a 114mm bass driver. It uses Blue­tooth 4.0, but also has a 3.5mm ana­log au­dio in­put. The recharge­able bat­tery is claimed to be able to power the unit for up to eight hours.

The Klip­sch Three is a stereo table­top sys­tem fea­tur­ing two 57mm full-range driv­ers and a 133mm long-throw bass driver. ‘ This sys­tem is bi-am­pli­fied for au­dio pre­ci­sion and pro­fes­sion­ally tuned by Klip­sch acousti- cians to de­liver a pre­mium au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence,’ said Grundl. In ad­di­tion to be­ing able to be ac­cessed via Blue­tooth, the Three also has a phono in­put, a 3.5mm line in­put and a USB in­put.

Klip­sch’s ‘Sixes’ are bi-am­pli­fied pow­ered mon­i­tors with one am­pli­fier driv­ing a 25mm ti­ta­nium trac­trix horn driver and the other driv­ing a 165mm bass driver. As well as Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, the Sixes also have a phono in­put, a line in­put, an op­ti­cal dig­i­tal in­put and a USB in­put. ‘ De­liv­er­ing room­fill­ing sound, these pow­ered mon­i­tors in­cor­po­rate in­di­vid­ual ul­tra-low noise am­pli­fiers that are cus­tom de­signed to max­i­mize performance and eliminate ex­ter­nal am­pli­fi­ca­tion, said Grundl.
