Klipsch just announced a total of three all-new, Apple AirPlay-enabled audio solutions set to debut at CES and launch throughout 2012. Joining the ranks of the already in-market Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air, the company’s first introduction in the AirPlay category, will be the Klipsch RoomGroove Air, Klipsch Stadium and Klipsch Console.
Designed to utilize any wireless network and embedded AirPlay technology, the new Klipsch systems stream audio directly from any iPod, iPhone or iPad – all without wires and the need to dock the relevant device. In addition, iTunes can also be streamed from a Mac or PC to the three systems. Featuring USB inputs for direct digital connection, the systems are also capable of charging most 30-pin Apple devices, while also accepting almost every music player available today.
Employing dual 1-inch tweeters with Round Tractrix horns and 2.5-inch woofers, the Klipsch RoomGroove Air stereo music system reportedly delivers major output from a compact product.
The Klipsch Stadium was created to ensure the convenience of portable music storage is accompanied by high-performance audio. The 2.1 tabletop sound solution features dual 1-inch, horn-loaded tweeters and 3-inch midrange woofers. In addition, these components are combined with dual 5.25-inch, built-in subwoofers to ensure bass output.
Hand built in Hope, Ark. where the brand was originally founded, the Klipsch Console serves as both a multifunctional 2.1 audio system and furniture centerpiece. The Klipsch console provides plug n’ play functionality for music, movies and television, in addition to its AirPlay capabilities. Versatile inputs, including HDMI, optical and USB, provide numerous sound connection options no matter the preferred media source. The unique system utilizes dual 90° x 60° Tractrix Horns with 1.75-inch titanium dome, high-compression drivers featuring Linear Travel Suspension (LTS),10-inch machine-spun Cerametallic woofers with folded cones and huge motor structures, and 12-inch non-resonant, woven fiberglass subwoofer drivers with large, four-layer, aluminum-wound voice coils. For added impact, the Klipsch Console can also be used as a center channel and subwoofer solution for more extensive home theater setups.
The Klipsch RoomGroove Air and Klipsch Stadium speakers will be available in fall 2012, with Klipsch Console following in winter 2012.
