Klipsch Upgrades Award-Winning Reference Premiere Loudspeaker Range
Indianapolis-based but globally renowned loudspeaker company Klipsch has announced the debut of its new Reference Premiere series speakers.
The Reference Premiere range is the company's most award-winning series of all time. According to Klipsch, its third-generation release features the most impactful upgrades in the series' history, including the latest technological audio advancements, premium materials, and dramatic cosmetic details.
Upgrades to the new range include larger proprietary Tractrix horn technology to improve high-frequency response and extension while enhancing imaging and dynamics. Klipsch's signature copper Cerametallic woofers with aluminium Faraday rings and Tractrix ports provide powerful low frequencies while minimising distortion and maximising efficiency. An exclusive Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeter maximises dynamics and delivers detailed performances.
Described by the company as the “epitome of modern elegance”, the speakers are available in two furniture-grade wood finishes – ebony and walnut. Sleek cabinet design details exude refinement with enhanced cabinet bracing, aluminium binding posts, cast aluminium feet, and discrete Dolby Atmos connections that allow easy elevation speaker integration. Signature Klipsch copper trim rings accentuate the tweeter and woofer, which can also be concealed by sturdy yet flexible magnetic grilles.
There are 11 new models making up the new Klipsch Reference Premiere range, including Four floorstanding towers (RP-8060FA II Dolby Atmos enabled, RP-8000F II, RP-6000F II and RP-5000F II), Two bookshelf speakers (RP-600M II and RP-500M II), Three centre channel speakers (RP-504C II, RP-500C II and RP-404C II), Two surround speakers (RP-502S II and the innovative, dual-purpose RP-500SA II that functions as a Dolby Atmos elevation speaker or a rear/side wall-mountable surround).
Pricing for the new Klipsch Reference Premiere series spans US$1198 to US$2,998 for a pair of floorstanding speakers, US$599 to US$749 for a pair of bookshelf models, US$499 to US$799 for a centre channel, US$699 for a pair of surrounds, and US$899 for a pair of dual-purpose RP-500SA II.
