As you may already know, Klipsch is celebrating its 70th Anniversary at CES 2016. In honor of this milestone, we are introducing a pair of unique finishes for select Heritage speakers as well as a whole new line of Heritage-inspired speakers.
Like yesterday’s post, we would like to remind everyone that even with today’s entry, we aren’t done reporting on all of the new stuff we have on display at CES 2016. There are just so many new and awesome Klipsch speakers and headphones that have been introduced publicly here in Las Vegas.
No point in blabbering on anymore, let’s get to it…
Limited Edition 70th Anniversary Klipschorn & Heresy Speakers
These limited edition Klipschorn and Heresy III speakers are a stunning tribute to our proud 70 years of history. Both of these Paul W. Klipsch designs are receiving an exotic Australian walnut wood veener finish and a unique grille cloth. Each pair of speakers will have a special 70th Anniversary plaque, hand signed by the builder, identifying it as part of this limited series. Oh and you gotta love those special logos!
There will only be 35 pairs of these 70th Anniversary Klipschorns made and 70 pairs of the 70th Anniversary Heresys. We will announce availability information shortly.
Heresy III Wireless Speakers
You may look at this photo and say “that’s just a Heresy III.” Well, you’d be dead wrong. This puppy is powered by custom engineered electronics and wirelessly connected with WiSA high definition wireless technology. (Just like the Reference Premiere HD Wireless System.) The Heresy III Wireless accepts digital, analog and Bluetooth wireless technology inputs and easily connects to turntables via the built-in phono pre-amp.
Heritage-Inspired Powered Monitors
We just introduced the slick Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors, but we know many of you prefer the Heritage look and feel. At CES 2016, we showed two versions of these Heritage-inspired powered monitors – one with a 6.5” woofer and the other with a big ol’ 10” woofer.
Featuring a wood veneer, tactile controls and a premium grille cloth, these monitors certainly fit the look and feel of an old-school speaker. Additionally, we threw in all of the technology that makes the R-15PM so appetizing: built-in phono pre-amp, Bluetooth, etc.
Heritage-Inspired Portable Music System & Multi Room System
Ready or not, here’s something a little different for you! Like the Heritage-inspired powered monitors, these speakers have a retro design, yet are packed with new-age technology. One version of this speaker is the classic semi-portable speaker (8 hours battery life) that can give you this classic style and sound on the go. The other version is a multi-room solution thanks to Play-Fi technology.
You’ve been asking for a true multi-room solution and we are certainly listening.Who wouldn’t want a bunch of these speakers around their home?
(We will have more information on other Klipsch multi-room systems in the day 3 CES 2016 recap.)
Heritage-Inspired Table Top Speakers
Of all the new Heritage-inspired speakers, the Table Top speakers perhaps garnered the biggest reaction. Countless booth visitors – men and women, young and old – remarked how they would love to have one for their office or desk. Exactly what we’re thinking!
Coming in two different sizes, depending on how large your room is, these speakers will effortlessly fill the room while giving you a pleasing mid-century aesthetic that goes with just about anything.
Heritage-Inspired 2.1 Desktop System
Yes, these look like Heresy speakers. We took one of our most popular designs and shrunk it down into a 2.1 Bluetooth system that would be the perfect pairing for a computer setup. We should’ve done this a while ago, don’t you think? After all, more Heresy is good for the soul.
Now, before you frantically type “TAKE MY MONEY”, we must put the disclaimer that all of the new Heritage-inspired speakers are still in development. There will be plenty of design and acoustic tweaks before these pushed to market.
