Dealerscope (10/01/2012)

"A venerable audio name known for horn-tweeted dominated speakers, Klipsch's wireless offering doesn't disappoint. Its clean, tight bass puts other models to shame and the highs tend to be well-rounded yet crisp."

"Overall, its distortion-free audio will satisfy rock 'n' rollers with an ear for solid, quality sound."

Macword Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air Review (01/04/2012)

“…. I came away from the G-17 Air suitably awed.”

“The G-17 can also generate truly astonishing volume without distortion. Cranked all the way up, the G-17 goes beyond room-filling—it’s more like two-bedroom-apartment filling.”

“The Gallery G-17 ain’t cheap, but based on my experience with other AirPlay-capable systems, this is one case where you’re getting what you pay for. With the G-17, Klipsch has built a stylish, powerful AirPlay speaker system that’s easy to recommend. AirPlay enthusiasts with an audiophile streak won’t be disappointed.”

Engadget Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air Review (11/21/2011)

"To say the Klipsch G-17 Air exceeded our usual expectations of an Airplay-enabled speaker would simply be an understatement -- it's clear that the folks at the company put a great deal of work into what was merely a concept on the CES floor nearly eight month's ago. The speaker itself is built like a (glossy) rock, and the sound that comes through is as solid as the foundation."

"Compared to less expensive AirPlay speakers like iHome's $300 iW1, the $550 G-17 Air is an unquestionably a major step up, and we'd easily choose this puppy over options like the slightly spendier $600 Zeppelin Air."
