Klipsch launches Reference series speakers in the UK

Klipsch RF-62

They'll be available to buy online from the Klipsch website and Amazon, as well as selected hi-fi and home cinema retailers

The stereo line-up runs from a £199 pair of two-way bookshelf speakers up to a three-way floorstanding pair at £799.

And if home cinema is more your thing, there's a choice of four subwoofers, three surround speakers and three centre speakers to add to the bookshelf/floorstanding models.

The floorstanders use Tractrix horn-loaded tweeters and high-output, copper-coloured Cerametallic woofers, and are available in cherry and black veneer finishes.

The bookshelf models have titanium compression drivers mated to the latest generation of square Tractrix horns, while the centre channel speakers use Klipsch's Tapered Array technology and custom internal wiring.

All three surround speakers incorporate Wide Dispersion Surround technology (WDST), and adopt a new cabinet and driver layout that's similar to that used on Klipsch's flagship £1000 THX Ultra2-certified KS-525-THX surround model.

And the RW-12d and RW-10d subwoofers use Klipsch's Corner Port technology to minimise turbulence while delivering deep bass.

The flagship RSW-10d sub has dual 25cm Cerametallic drivers and a 500W RMS digital hybrid amplifier, while the entry-level RPW-10 uses a front-firing, 25.4cm composite-fibre cone.
