Klipsch unveils upgraded Reference Premiere speakers

Today, Klipsch has announced the third generation of its Reference Premiere series speakers, an enhanced version of its award-winning Reference Premiere series, which is also its most award-winning series of all time.

Consisting of four floorstanding towers, two bookshelf speakers, three centre channel speakers, and two surround speakers, the new Reference Premiere Speakers feature the most impactful upgrades in the series’ history, including the latest technological advancements, premium materials and dramatic cosmetic details.

New larger proprietary Tractrix horn technology is used in the new speaker series to improve high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics. Klipsch signature copper Cerametallic woofers with aluminium Faraday rings and Tractrix ports provide powerful low frequencies while minimising distortion and maximising efficiency. An exclusive Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeter is also used to maximise dynamics and deliver a detailed performance.

Available in two furniture-grade wood finishes – ebony and walnut – the Reference Premiere series is made using new premium materials and dramatic design features. The elegant and sleek cabinet design features enhanced bracing, aluminium binding posts, cast aluminium feet, and discrete Dolby Atmos connections to allow for easy elevation speaker integration. Signature Klipsch copper trim rings accentuate the tweeter and woofer, which can also be concealed by sturdy yet flexible magnetic grilles.

Made of 11 speakers in total, the four floorstanding towers consist of RP-8060FA II Dolby Atmos enabled (£2,999 / €3,198), RP-8000F II (£1,699 / €1,898), RP-6000F II (£1,449 / €1,598) and RP-5000F II (£1,249 / €1,398).
