From Klipsch
Klipsch announces the debut of its expanded Reference Powered speaker series. The plug-and-play lineup now includes two-channel towers and additional monitor speakers with groundbreaking technology.

"We've taken the complication and guesswork out of premium home audio. These powered speakers combine the bold sound Klipsch is legendary for with the easiest setup and use on the planet," said Andre LaRouce, director of product development, integrated systems for Klipsch Group, Inc.

Klipsch Reference R-28PF powered floorstanding speakers and R-14PM powered monitors deliver powerful, detailed sound while eliminating the need for expensive, complicated external electronics and speaker wire. The speakers can be set up easily in minutes to any audio source utilizing a wide range of digital, analog and wireless inputs. The powered speakers come turntable-, computer-, and TV-ready, featuring a 24-bit/192-kHz digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and RIAA-equalized phono pre-amplifier. They also include Bluetooth wireless technology to play music directly from any device. A subwoofer output perfectly blends the speakers with any powered subwoofer.

The Klipsch Reference R-28PF floorstanding speakers deliver powerful sound in a two-channel audio configuration. Dual 8" copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofers, 1" linear travel suspension (LTS) in Tractrix horns, and bi-amplified ultra low-noise 260W amplifier are custom-designed to maximize system performance. A digital crossover, equalizer, and limiters deliver high performance without distortion.

The Klipsch Reference R-14PM powered monitor speakers feature one 4" copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer and ¾" LTS tweeters in Tractrix horns. They also incorporate an individual ultra low-noise 80W amplifier custom-designed to maximize system performance.

The Klipsch Reference R-28PF (US MSRP $1,199/pair) and R-14PM (US MSRP $399/pair) are available in a black brushed polymer finish. They are now available at select retailers and at Klipsch.com.
