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.
