Klipsch The Fives Active Speakers

Klipsch has launched The Fives - a highly connectable active pair of speakers that boast both HDMI-ARC and an MM phono stage.

Klipsch's The Fives cut a classically Klipsch dash thanks to their 25mm titanium TLS vented tweeter mated with a tractrix horn and 11cm long-throw woofer in each cabinet. Powering these active speakers are Klipsch-designed ultra-low noise amplifiers that are bi-amped to drive the two speaker cabinets. At the rear of the cabinets, you'll find a tractrix port, borrowed from Klipsch's premium Reference Premiere speaker line, for further bass enhancement.

As The Fives is part of Klipsch's Heritage Wireless series, expect real wood veneers in matte black or walnut, metal switches, and a 'mid-century modern' design.

The Fives features HDMI-ARC and optical inputs, and so can sit either side of your telly box for decent stereo volume just like a soundbar. However, unlike most soundbars, you can connect your turntable to these active speakers as The Fives sports a phono stage. If you don't have a turntable, that's fine as, with the flick of a switch, you can plug in a CD player or any other RCA-connected source.

You also get a 3.5mm Aux and USB port with the later supporting 192khz/24-bit decoding and so high-res audio from your PC or Mac, for example. Wireless audio comes by way of Bluetooth 5. Want mo' bass? Cool, there's even a subwoofer output.
