Klipsch Partners With Capitol Records For New Speakers
Klipsch is launching a new range of Heritage and Heritage Wireless speakers in partnership with record company Capitol Records.
Making up the range of co-branded Klipsch and Capitol Records speakers are the semi-portable tabletop speaker the Capitol One, the stereo tabletop system the Capitol Three, and the Capitol Heresy three-way loudspeaker.
“These two iconic brands have united to celebrate over seven decades of bringing the power, detail, and emotion of live music to life and into homes,” Klipsch said in a statement.
The Capitol One packs in Bluetooth connectivity and analog audio inputs as well as a rechargeable battery life of up to eight hours. The biamplified speaker features two 2 ¼” full range drivers and a 4.5″ woofer, and has been professionally tuned by Klipsch engineers.
Larger than the Capitol One is the Capitol Three tabletop system, which features a wide range of connectivity options including compatibility with the Klipsch Stream Wireless Multi-Room Audio system as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm, RCA, USB Type B, and phono pre-amp.
Supporting high-res audio playback via a 192kHz/24-bit digital to analog converter, the Capitol Three also features two 2 ¼” full range drivers, a 5 ¼” long-throw woofer and dual opposed 5 ¼” passive radiators.
The third iteration of Klipsch’s Heresy, the Capitol Heresy, features a compact three-way design with a 12″ woofer as well as a horn-loaded mid-range and tweeter.
“The speakers blend a nostalgic mid-century modern design, luxury materials such as real wood veneer and gunmetal switches and knobs, with the latest advancements in acoustics and technology,” Klipsch said.
Pricing and availability hasn’t yet been announced for Australia, but all of the new speakers will be available in two finishes: Blonde with tan woven grill cloth, or Ebony with salt and pepper woven grill cloth.
