Klipsch has released four passive Klipsch Gallery speaker models.
The Klipsch Gallery speakers are the first available components of a greater cross-over home audio solution, according to the company.
Initially showcased at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, these ultra-thin speaker systems are the first available components of a greater cross-over home audio solution.
“As modern home décor demands high style in design, we decided to take the Klipsch approach to slim speakers – slim sizes with big, effortless sound,” said Mark Casavant, vice president of product development for Klipsch. “For music lovers, these artful designs look great and really perform as stereo speakers. As HDTV designs evolve with thin, slim dimensions, their inherent audio quality continues to diminish. We created Klipsch Gallery speakers for this very reason — to deliver high-definition and powerful audio quality equal to the video; all while being attractive, elegant and décor-friendly. After hearing the superior sound these speakers produce, anything less will become unacceptable.”
The current Klipsch Gallery offering is complete with three satellite models (G-12, G-16 and G-28), utilized as left, center, right or surround speakers (LCRS) and one integrated LCR 3-channel soundbar (G-42), with the names representing their corresponding size in length in inches.
Every Klipsch Gallery speaker is produced with a titanium tweeter with linear travel suspension, loaded behind a new 90 x 90 Tractrix horn. As a result, listeners experience an open, natural sound.
Accompanying the series in the fall will be the Klipsch Gallery Forum wireless-new media system. Forum connects wirelessly over an existing Wi-Fi network and can be controlled with an Apple smart device. Because Klipsch is an official AirPlay partner with Apple, Klipsch Gallery Forum will utilize AirPlay technology to allow for wireless transmission of users’ iTunes libraries throughout any living environment.
The four Klipsch Gallery passive speakers will be available for purchase on June 1 at select Klipsch retailers. Klipsch Gallery Forum will follow soon after and be available for purchase in fall 2011.
