Klipsch has announced the addition of the latest version of its “high resolution” Reference Wireless speakers with WiSA technology, which the company claims are both easy to set up and use. The speakers are targeted at those who want the simplicity of a sound bar and high-performance multi-channel capable audio from WiSA Ready TVs, gaming systems and computers. The new Wireless Reference line comprises the following with prices included: RW-51M monitors ($699 per pair), a RW-34C center channel speaker ($499 each), and a RW-100SW wireless subwoofer ($599 each).
WiSA technology means being able to build out a multi-channel home theater without using an AV receiver or having to run speaker wires. Klipsch says the sound is optimized with custom digital signal processing and dedicated amplifiers in each speaker that “…extract maximum performance.” (With that said, the lady in the Klipsch-supplied pic above will get much better performance from her new speakers if she re-positions them at ear level.)
The speakers can be configured as a two-channel set-up all the way up to a 7.1 layout, as the system automatically recognizes and connects new wireless speakers as they are added. Like other Klipsch Reference series models, the Wireless line include the proprietary 90°x90° Tractrix horn technology coupled with Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeters to improve efficiency, detail and dynamics. The Reference Wireless speakers won Best of CES 2019 awards from Digital Trends, AVS Forum and Hi-Def Digest when they were introduced at the show in January.
The new speakers are available at Magnolia Home Theater stores and Klipsch.com nationally, as well as other authorized retailers regionally. For more information on the brand and products, visit Klipsch.
