THE VERDICT

The One II is a smaller, streamlined follow-up to Klipsch’s excellent Three wireless speaker that sounds as good as it looks.

Speakers don’t sit idle at Klipsch. The company is always looking for ways to evolve its products. Case in point is the new One II wireless speaker, a scaled-down follow-up to the excellent Three wireless speaker we reviewed a couple years ago.

Klipsch Console Prototype

By | October 29th, 2019|Categories: ItisHifi - Vintage|Tags: , |

Check outt this Klipsch Console prototype. This is a cool product that never reached market. There were only a handful made.
I’m convinced the Klipsch factory in Hope can do any finish. Check out this piano gloss.

Klipschorn Jubilee by Roy Delgado and PWK

By | October 24th, 2019|Categories: ItisHifi - Vintage|Tags: , , , , |

 The weekend in Hope was a blast. PWK and Roy Delgado’s Jubilee two way loudspeaker is truly state of the art. It is simply the best loudspeaker I have ever heard. Roy has it so dialed in it is just amazing. If you can make the pilgrimage in Hope next year please do.  That experience is so fresh in my mind I thought I’d do a Jubilee post.
Roy and PWK started this project in the 90’s while PWK was in his 90’s.… Read the full article

Klipsch Museum 1st Educational Event

By | October 21st, 2019|Categories: ItisHifi - Vintage|Tags: , , , |

This was the first of what will hopefully be an annual event. Roy Delgado gave talks and demos to illustrate why PWK did what he did and why they still follow his example and standard. We don’t have PWK anymore but Roy Delgado follows his principles and expands on what PWK that was the future of speaker development.

I must have asked Roy a stupid question and gave him a headache. On the left is the mighty Jubilee and on the right the recently upgraded Cornwall 4. 
Roy shared data on how he develops crossovers but not the skunk works side of things.… Read the full article

Klipsch La Scala Speakers, Simaudio Moon Preamp and Amp, Pro-Ject Turntable

By | October 19th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Having never before seen a pair of Klipsch La Scalas ($CAD15,000/pair) in person, I was pleasantly surprised by their appearance when I saw them in the Kennedy HiFi room. Looking stately, dare I say noble even, with their wide baffles and hardwood enclosures, the Klipsches were coupled to a system that included a Simaudio Moon 393 preamp ($CAD6800), a Moon 330 120Wpc power amp ($CAD4400), and a Pro-Ject 2Xperience turntable ($CAD1700 with arm and cartridge). Though the sound I heard lacked some refinement and air, it possessed great drive and a goodly amount of fun factor.

Wheely good: a short film about the Klipsch Forte III

By | October 19th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , |

On vital statistics, the Klipsch Forte III sells for US$4000/€4400 per pair. A decidedly vintage-looking wooden enclosure houses a 1″ tweeter and 1.75″ midranger that come on kinda plain Jane until we note that each is a compression driver and horn-loaded. Low frequencies are handled by a 12″-er but in lieu of a rear-firing port, we get a 15″ passive radiator. Together, these two paper cones have the Forte III reach down to 38Hz. Similarly, Klipsch rate their Heritage Series loudspeaker at 99dB efficiency and 8 Ohm nominal where flea-watt amplifiers can enter the fray with considerably reduced concern for flabby bass and/or diminished SPLs.… Read the full article

Klipsch Heritage Series – RMAF 2019

By | September 24th, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , |

Klipsch Heritage Series and the Klipschorn AK6

Klipsch was showing a trio of true-audiophile icons from their Heritage series of loudspeakers. Klipsch is known for using a mixture of horn-driver tweeters and midranges, with dynamic-driver woofers — and in some models, like the Klipschorn AK6 — all the drivers are horn loaded.

Klipsch has been doing things right in all things audio for a little over seventy years. In that time many things have changed in the Klipsch product line-up, and yet still some things — ahem, great things — remain nearly the same.… Read the full article

Klipsch RP600-M, Cambridge Audio | RMAF 2019

By | September 21st, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I walked into this Klipsch room before the one I reported on yesterday, and I was a little disappointed to find a pair of Klipsch RP600-M loudspeakers ($549/pair in walnut or black, $649 for piano gloss) instead of something from the Heritage line. I have nothing against Klipsch’s other speaker lines, but I just don’t get as excited about them as I do a gorgeous pair of La Scalas or Cornwalls. For many years Klipsch has made more affordable speakers with this specific look, black cabinets, copper woofer cone, tweeter recessed in a waveguide inset, but the Klipsch RP600-M seems to mark a turning point for affordable speakers.… Read the full article
