Premium Klipsch Wireless Speakers to Support Amazon Alexa Connected Speaker APIs

Klipsch today announces that its wireless speakers and amplifiers will support the Amazon Alexa Connected Speaker APIs (Application Protocol Interfaces), allowing users to control their speakers and multi-room audio systems from any Alexa-enabled device, such as the Amazon Echo or Dot.

The company has incorporated the latest technologies into its speakers so listeners can access, enjoy, and control their music and movies in one room or throughout the home. Any of the Klipsch DTS Play-Fi equipped speakers in the Klipsch Stream wireless multi-room audio system: Reference RSB-14 and RSB-8 sound bars, Heritage Wireless speaker The Three, RW-1 wireless speaker and Gate and PowerGate amplifiers.

Klipsch Stream distributes music from a variety of sources throughout the home using the Wi-Fi network. Expand the system to add additional rooms of great sound with other Klipsch Stream wireless multi-room audio products. The free Klipsch Stream App for smartphones or tablets allows complete control over the entire system.

Current owners of any products in the Klipsch Stream series will require a free firmware update through the Klipsch Stream app to enable functionality of Alexa voice control. The firmware update will be available early 2018. More details are here.
