For the audiophile in the household.
Klipsch has announced that its hand-built Heritage range of speakers is returning to the UK, more than 60 years after it was originally introduced in 1946. Four loudspeakers comprise the range. The Klipschorn is the daddy of the group, standing 1.28 metres high and weighing 80kg. It has a 1-inch tweeter, 2-inch midrange driver and a 15-inch fibre-composite woofer that gives it a sensitivity of 105dB. Then there’s the La Scala II. Originally introduced as a PA speaker for an Arkansas politician, the three-way loudspeaker moved into a domestic setting afterward. The three-way Cornwall III has the same woofer as the Klipschorn, but adds a sensitivity that matches fully horn-loaded cabinets. It comes with a riser base to lift it off the floor. – From Pocket Lint
