The new R-15PM features Klipsch's proprietary Hybrid Tractrix Horn technology with a titanium tweeter and copper-spun IMG woofer. This powered monitor also sports an integrated phono preamp, supports Bluetooth, and includes digital optical, analog RCA, and USB inputs. It will be available this month for $499 per pair. 

 

From Klipsch
Klipsch announces the launch of its Reference R-15PM powered monitors. The speakers are a part of the brand's Reference series and feature the same award-winning sonic sound signature. Designed with power, performance and simplicity in mind, the R-15PM powered monitors cater to the way people access and listen to content while maintaining the core Klipsch design and acoustic principles.

The Klipsch Reference Premiere R-15PM powered monitors were designed for simple setup in minutes to a turntable, television, computer or wireless device. Its integrated phono preamp, Bluetooth wireless technology, digital optical, analog RCA and USB audio inputs make it a versatile audio solution. The R-15PM powered monitors also incorporate individual, ultra-low-noise amplifiers custom designed to maximize system performance and eliminate the need for an A/V receiver. The speakers offer a wired sub output to further enhance the speakers' low frequency. The R-15PM's dedicated IR remote allows easy access to system features such as dedicated source selection, track controls and play/pause options.

As with all the Reference loudspeakers, the R-15PM powered monitors feature proprietary 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horn technology coupled with Linear Travel Suspension ("LTS") titanium tweeters to produce the most effective release of sound waves for clean, natural listening experiences. The LTS tweeters ensure minimized distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. Reference Premiere R-15PM powered monitors fully embody the ideals of Klipsch design philosophy: low distortion, high efficiency, flat frequency response, broad dynamic range and controlled directivity.

Providing remarkable low-frequency response with minimal cone breakup or distortion are the speakers' copper-spun IMG woofers. The woofers are coupled with ceramic motor structures--a design that when paired with Tractrix Horn-loaded LTS tweeters combines for speaker efficiency that is highest in its class. Unique materials have been applied in the ongoing pursuit of ultra-low distortion design. The horn's outer layer is silicon-based rubber, which eliminates resonance of the horn housing, improving detail and resolution.

The Klipsch Reference R-15PM powered monitors (US MSRP $499/pair) will be available to purchase through authorized retailers and Klipsch.com in January 2016.
