Klipsch today announces the debut of its new Reference series speakers. The series is comprised of 13 models — including Dolby Atmos enabled speakers and powered monitors. Now in its sixth generation, the Reference series speakers have a larger Tractrix rear-facing horn for better coverage and new tweeter and phase plugs.
The line also includes new cosmetic upgrades, including angled feet, full-length low profile magnetic grilles and a scratch-resistant black wood grain vinyl finish.
The 13 new Reference series models consist of four floorstanding speakers (R-625FA Dolby Atmos enabled, R-820F, R-620F and R-610F), two center channels (R-52C and R-34C), four bookshelf speakers (R-51M, R-41M and two powered monitors R-41PM and R-51PM), one Dolby Atmos elevation speaker that can also be used as a surround speaker (R-41SA) and two powered subwoofers (R-120SW and R-100SW).
The Klipsch Reference R-51PM and R-41PM powered monitors obviously eliminate the need for an external receiver. The powered monitors are equipped with an integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth, digital optical and analog RCA and USB inputs. A new feature includes Dynamic Bass EQ that dynamically increases volume at low frequencies to match the human ear’s ability to perceive bass.
The new Klipsch Reference series span price points ranging from $498 to $1,198 for a pair of floor-standing speakers, $199 to $499 for a pair of bookshelf models, $249 to $349 for a center channel, $399 for a pair of surrounds and $349-$449 for the subwoofers. All of the detailed specs for each one are here.
