Klipsch just announced the availability of four passive Klipsch Gallery speaker models. 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 from Klipsch.
Klipsch Gallery speakers have been designed with the intention of capturing the same distinct power, detail and emotion of Klipsch's horn-loaded speakers. Employing exclusive Tractrix Horn technology, this series delivers sound, that is reportedly presented with reduced distortion and constant directivity for a live soundstage experience. Modern in appearance, Klipsch Gallery speakers occupy minimal space.
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. Arranging the satellite speakers to fit any room is made simple since each speaker can be mounted in a horizontal or vertical position. Every Klipsch Gallery speaker is produced with a titanium tweeter with linear travel suspension, loaded behind a new 90 x 90 Tractrix horn.
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. 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, 2011 at select Klipsch retailers. Klipsch Gallery Forum will follow soon after and be available for purchase in fall 2011.
