Klipsch has unveiled a series of minimalist free-standing speakers which promise a "spectacular" home cinema audio experience while fitting in with your clean lines and funky furniture.
Klipsch Gallery consists of four slim, passive speakers (G-12, G-16, G-28 and G-42). Each speaker’s name represents its particular speaker’s size in length (in inches) and can be configured as a left, centre, right or surround speaker (the G-42 is a left/centre/rear channel soundbar product that works in conjunction with a standard AV receiver). All are supplied with tinted, dark glass pedestals but can also be wall-mounted.
Among the key features are titanium diaphragm compression tweeters, Tractrix horns (which claim to expand the prime listening area), long throw IMG (injection-moulded graphite) woofers, and magnetically attached frameless grilles.
“We feel a strong obligation to bring the best possible sound to every product category in which we participate, and this definitely holds true for Klipsch Gallery,” said Mark Casavant, vice president of product development for Klipsch. “No matter how or where these products are used, the sleek speakers deliver true high fidelity sound.”
However such style and high-end audio doesn’t come cheap. The individual speakers cost £179 (G-12), £269 (G-16), £449 (G-28) and £629 for the G-42 Soundbar. Klipsch has also announced a number of home cinema packs costing between £1,264 and £2,433 and all including either a SW-350 150w subwoofer or a SW-110 200w subwoofer.
