Incorporating real wood veneers, metal switches and a ‘mid-century modern’ design, The Fives are amongst the very first powered speakers to feature HDMI-ARC – the technology that enables users to connect the speakers directly to the TV, making them a viable soundbar alternative.
In addition to extensive connectivity, The Fives house considerable custom engineered amplification. Ultra-low noise amplifiers are bi-amped to drive the two speaker cabinets, each of which employs a 25mm titanium TLS vented tweeter with Tractrix horn and 11cm long-throw woofer.
The rear of the cabinet features a Tractrix port, borrowed from the Reference Premiere speaker line, to further enhance the bass. The Fives also feature Klipsch Dynamic Bass EQ, a tech typically only available with AV receivers. Here, the Klipsch system dynamically matches the ear’s ability to hear lower frequencies.
The Fives are designed to breathe life into each and every recording they’re faced with – from the analogue warmth of a good vinyl record to the clarity of a modern digital recording. To assist buyers with all these various source options, the Klipsch Fives bundle also includes a remote control, an HDMI cable, and a USB cable.
The Klipsch The Fives are available in the UK as of now in Matte Black or Walnut finishes for £829.00.
