Klipsch’s latest addition to their reference series brings incredible flexibility to home audio by doing away with the need for an external amplifier. The R-15PM has an integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth capabilities, digital optical, analog RCA and USB outputs, so you can plug anything from your TV to your turntable in to the speakers and be good to go.
No messing around with suitable amplifiers or phono pre-amps. Individual ultra-low noise amplifiers designed to maximize system performance have been installed within the speakers themselves so you won’t need an A/V receiver. There’s also a wired sub output if you want even better low frequency performance.
Inside, the speakers have 90°x90° Hybrid Tractrix Horn technology coupled with Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeters for maximum efficiency, allowing it to produce clean, natural sound. The LTS tweeters ensure minimal distortion for maximum detail, and these are matched with copper-spun IMG woofers for excellent low frequency response.
These woofers are coupled with ceramic motor structures, allowing for even better efficiency, especially when paired with the silicon-based rubber outer layer of the Tractix Horn, which eliminates resonance. All in, the Reference Premiere R-15PM powered monitors fully embody the ideals of Klipsch design philosophy: low distortion, high efficiency, flat frequency response, broad dynamic range and controlled directivity.
The Klipsch Reference R-15PM is available from all major resellers now for S$999.
