Klipsch Announces 7th Generation and Best Reference Series Loudspeakers Yet
Klipsch has announced the next-generation ten-model lineup of its famed Reference series is now available.
Having dominated living rooms for years, the 7th-generation series from Klipsch features what the company says is “the most dramatic upgrades since the series' inception, including many technologies derived from the award-winning Klipsch Reference Premiere series.”
First introduced in 1997 and originally known as the Synergy Series, the range was re-branded in 2015 to the Reference Series. The brand new series reflects over four years of research, development and engineering, honouring the 25 years of product lineage and based on founder Paul W Klipsch's principles over the last 75 years.
Including its Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers, the ten new models of the Reference series are infused with the latest technological audio advancements, as well as cosmetic and material upgrades. Upgrades include a new, larger, edge-to-edge proprietary Tractrix horn that provides improved coverage, bandwidth, and directivity control. New woofers made of spun-copper thermoformed crystal polymer (TCP) use steeper angling of cones for a smoother response and better crossover integration for improved accuracy and transparency.
The sleek cabinet designs exude modern elegance with enhanced cabinet bracing and features such as black scratch-resistant wood grain vinyl finish, metallic coated binding posts, and discrete Dolby Atmos connections that allow for effortless and refined elevation speaker integration.
Peter Shamoon, Director of Sales and Marketing at Premium Audio Co. (Australia), told StereoNET:
I'm really excited to bring the latest generation of the highly-acclaimed Klipsch Reference line to the Australian market. Since Klipsch became an official subsidiary in Australia in 2021, the brand has already grown over 100% which reflects our more focused pricing, availability and the product performance itself. The 8th-generation Reference range comprises just the right line-up to satisfy the most discerning but budget conscious audio enthusiast.
There are three floorstanding speakers, including the R-605FA Dolby Atmos-enabled (£1,499), R-800F (£1,249) and R-600F (£949), two centre channels including the R-50C (£279) and R-30C (£375), two bookshelf speakers - R-50M (£325) and R-40M (£275) one Dolby Atmos elevation speaker that can also be used as a surround speaker, R-40SA (£399), and two powered subwoofers - R-121SW (£549) and R-101SW (£499).
Selected Klipsch Reference 7th-generation models are available now.
