Klipsch has announced the availability of the Apple AirPlay enabled Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air.
With this new speaker, listeners can turn their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a remote control that streams music wirelessly from their iTunes to the Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air.
With the ability to utilize any wireless network and embedded AirPlay technology, the G-17 Air streams high-quality audio directly from any iPod, iPhone or iPad capable of running iOS 4.2– all without wires and the need to dock the relevant device. iTunes can also be streamed from a Mac or PC to one or multiple G-17 Air systems in the home or office, taking advantage of a simple and efficient new method of creating a whole-house audio system. The G-17 Air also contains a USB input for direct digital connection and charging of most 30-pin Apple devices and a 3.5 mm analog input to accept almost every music player available.
“After receiving such a great reception at industry trade shows this fall, we’re delighted to offer the Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air to consumers right in time for the holiday season,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch. “With this speaker, you can be in control of your music without ever leaving your couch or having to dock your device in the system.”
Employing exclusive Tractrix Horn technology, the music system delivers reduced distortion and constant directivity for a live soundstage experience. The injection molded polymer cabinet has a front baffle that curves on both sides to create both an attractive design and a solid, low-resonance structure. The unique, 12-step cabinet finishing process achieves a sleek, piano-black and high-gloss luster.
The Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air is available for purchase at Klipsch.com. To ensure delivery by December 25, consumers must purchase by December 20.
