“We've taken the complication and guesswork out of premium home audio,” says Andre LaRouce, director of product development, integrated systems, Klipsch Group, Inc. “These powered speakers combine the bold sound Klipsch is legendary for with the easiest set-up and use on the planet.”
The new R-28PF floorstanding speaker features a pair of 8-inch copper-spun magnetically shielded IMG woofers, along with a 1-inch linear travel suspension (LTS) high-frequency driver set in Klipsch Tractrix horns. Driving the array is an internal biamplification system rated at 260 watts.
The speaker employs a digital crossover, equalization and limiters to produce clean, low-distortion sound.
Complementing the towers are Klipsch's new R-14PM powered monitor speakers, featuring a single 4-inch copper-spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer, and a 3/4-inch LTS high-frequency driver that reside in a Klipsch Tractrix horn as with the R-28PFs.
A built-in 80-watt amplifier is matched to the drivers.
Both speakers offer phono preamplifiers to support turntables, as well as wireless Bluetooth with aptX, digital USB and optical inputs, 3.5mm RCA input, and subwoofer output.
A remote control is included with the speakers.
MSRP for the Klipsch Reference R-28PF is $1,199 per pair, and the R-14PM is $399 per pair.
