Klip­sch has re­leased its new Ref­er­ence Pre­miere se­ries speak­ers. Michael Bu­ratto, prod­uct man­ager for Klip­sch, said that the new line com­prises en­hanced ver­sions of the com­pany’s pre­vi­ous award­win­ning Ref­er­ence Pre­miere se­ries mod­els plus adds new mod­els to the line-up. All mod­els are now avail­able in three fin­ishes—ebony, wal­nut, and hand-sanded pi­ano gloss black. ‘ Now in its sec­ond gen­er­a­tion, the Ref­er­ence Pre­miere speak­ers fea­ture the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal au­dio ad­vance­ments, pre­mium ma­te­rial up­grades, and dra­matic cos­metic de­tails,’ said Bu­ratto. The top-line floor­stand­ing model, RP-8000F ($3,299 per pair) is pic­tured be­low.

The Klip­sch Ref­er­ence Pre­miere Se­ries II mod­els use Klip­sch’s pro­pri­etary Trac­trix horn tech­nol­ogy and ‘Lin­ear Travel Sus­pen­sion (LTS) ti­ta­nium tweeter. ‘ This ul­tra-pre­mium vented tweeter fur­ther smooths high fre­quency re­sponse for en­hanced de­tail and clar­ity,’ says Bu­ratto, ‘ max­imis­ing dy­nam­ics and de­liv­er­ing de­tailed per­for­mance.’ Bass/midrange driv­ers are Klip­sch Cer­am­etal­lic types. ‘ We’ve taken the suc­cess­ful foun­da­tion of our best-sell­ing speak­ers and en­hanced them to cre­ate the best-sound­ing pre­mium speak­ers on the planet at these price points,’ said Bu­ratto.

The new Ref­er­ence Pre­miere se­ries com­prises five floor-stand­ing tow­ers, two book­shelf mod­els, five cen­tre-chan­nel speak­ers and four sur­round speak­ers, one of which (the RP-500SA) can be used as a Dolby At­mos el­e­va­tion speaker. Prices range from $1,999 to $3,299 for a pair of floor-standers, from $1,199 to $1,499 for a pair of book­shelf mod­els, form $1,099 to $1,599 for a cen­tre-chan­nel, and from $1,299 to $1,999 for a pair of sur­rounds.
