Klipsch Audio Powers the World’s No. 1 Listening Event
INDIANAPOLIS (May 6, 2014) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, announces today its participation and support for Classic Album Sundays, an organization dedicated to sharing the stories behind noteworthy albums and orchestrating in-depth vinyl listening sessions for fellow music enthusiasts. To ensure the highest quality sound reproduction at these music-centered events, Klipsch is installing its Heritage Series La Scala® speakers and SW-115 subwoofers for Classic Album Sunday’s new Brooklyn venue, Baby’s All Right.
“I’ve been a Klipsch enthusiast for over two decades,” said Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, founder of Classic Album Sundays. “I’ve dj’d in venues from London to New York City to Tokyo on dance floors surrounded by multiple Klipschorns, the same speakers I have squeezed into the living room of my home and that started Classic Album Sundays. Needless to say, Klipsch is in my DNA.”
Classic Album Sundays’ first event at Baby’s All Right is Sunday, May 11 at 4 p.m. and will highlight Neil Young’s landmark 1972 album “Harvest”. While on site, attendees will enjoy an array of tracks relevant to the album in the musical lead-up, then hear “Harvest” in full – via Klipsch speakers and high-end amplifiers and turntables. Classic Album Sundays will host monthly listening sessions at the venue for albums from Grace Jones to Jeff Buckley and more.
“Our classic heritage speakers are exquisitely matched for vinyl playback, with superior sensitivity, dynamic range and freedom from distortion. The Classic Album Sundays sessions will be an amazing experience – immersive, impactful and true to the original artists’ vision,” said Matt Sommers, vice president of marketing and creative strategies for Klipsch. “The opportunity to listen to the best source material on the best system is one not to be missed.”
First launched in 1963 as founder Paul W. Klipsch’s second product introduction, the La Scala is a fully horn-loaded, three-way speaker. It provides Klipschorn-like performance from a smaller cabinet that does not require a corner location. To ensure the utmost quality, the speaker is still hand-built upon order at Klipsch’s Hope, Arkansas manufacturing facility.
Providing technical expertise onsite at the new venue is Klipsch dealer Stuarts out of Westfield, New Jersey. From the initial site inspection to the speaker installation and system tuning, Stuarts utilizes their many years in the hi-fi business to ensure top-quality performances.
