Why Klipsch Heritage Speakers Should be on Your Hi-Fi Shopping List
Klipsch Heritage Speakers Are an Investment in Audio Bliss
We’ve waxed eloquently on these blog pages about Klipsch Heritage speakers. While Klipsch makes a wide array of speakers that includes everything from powered Bluetooth speakers to home theater to architectural to outdoor audio, the Heritage line is where all their audio know-how comes together. It's a classic approach to building great sound transducers, from the finishes to the drivers to the tuning by expert audio engineers.
If you’re looking for a new hi-fi speaker set, you know you have a vast array of choices. Whether it’s well-known brands like Monitor Audio or the boutique speaker makers that only market and sell online, it’s a daunting task to try to evaluate them all. Despite the sea of speakers, Klipsch still stands out from the pack. Explore three reasons below why you owe it to yourself to check out Klipsch Heritage speakers for your hi-fi system in Kennesaw, GA.
The Power of Horns
Anyone that knows Klipsch knows that they use horn-loaded drivers in most of their speakers, Heritage line or otherwise. Dismissed by some audio circles (hi-fi audio has its tribes), horns are a foundational technology for Klipsch. It is not new technology, as Klipsch has refined the use of horn designs for decades. As engineered and thoroughly refined by Klipsch, horns have distinct advantages in four key areas: High efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, wide dynamic range, and flat frequency response.
What does all that add up to? Klipsch Heritage speakers with horn drivers play loud and clean with very little power. In the hi-fi world, relatively few speakers come alive without powerful amplification. With Klipsch, you can still enjoy a high level of dynamics in the music without turning on the power to ear-splitting volumes. It's one aspect that reviewers remark about time and again with Klipsch Heritage speakers.
One’s idea of classic speaker design may be completely different than someone else. So, what do we mean by classic design with Klipsch Heritage? If you like the idea of exposed drivers with shiny bits and exotic materials, Klipsch Heritage may not be for you. These speakers look great with grills on or off, yet the design evokes the classic speaker designs from the 1960s and 1970s. They are boxier and beefier and not at all like most hi-fi speakers.
Along with the classic design, you get the quality materials that you find only in high-end models. Book-matched veneers are hand-picked and finished in natural wood like Cherry, Ash, Distressed Oak, and American Walnut. If you like classic turntables, early 60s Corvettes, Indian motorcycles, and mid-century design, you will love the look of Klipsch Heritage speakers.
Legendary Build Quality
Classic Klipsch speakers are built to last. Many are passed down from generation to generation, as great speakers, unlike digital technology, never get outdated. The current Klipsch Heritage speakers are still built the same way as those from decades past; by hand at the company’s original Hope, Arkansas factory, by skilled craftspeople that have been with the company for years.
Klipsch backs up the quality with one of the industry’s best warranties. The Heritage line sports a 10-year warranty on the entire speaker, ensuring years of sonic pleasure from your audio investment. While Klipsch Heritage speakers are not inexpensive, their performance and quality stand up to comparable speakers at twice their price.
