    Klipsch have announced three all-new, Apple AirPlay®-enabled audio solutions set to debut at CES and launch throughout 2012. Joining the ranks of the already in-market Klipsch Gallery™ G-17 Air will be the Klipsch RoomGroove® Air, Klipsch Stadium and Klipsch Console.

    Designed to utilize any wireless network and embedded AirPlay technology, the new Klipsch systems will stream high-quality audio directly from any iPod, iPhone or iPad. In addition, iTunes can also be streamed from a Mac or PC to the three systems. Featuring USB inputs for direct digital connection, the systems are also capable of charging most 30-pin Apple devices, while also accepting almost every music player available today.

    “Reliance on Apple smart devices for day-to-day activity is at an all-time high and will only continue to grow as their capabilities become more novel,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch. “By fusing 65 years of iconic loudspeaker engineering with noteworthy technological solutions such as AirPlay, we’re eager to diversify our future offerings in the wireless audio category. It is our passion behind these systems that will help change the way individuals share music with one another.”

    The Klipsch Stadium was designed with the intention that portable music storage is accompanied by high-performance audio. The 2.1 tabletop sound solution features dual 1in/25mm, horn-loaded tweeters and 3in/76mm midrange woofers. In addition, these components are combined with dual 5.25in/133mm built-in subwoofers

    Hand built in Hope, Ark. where the brand was originally founded, the Klipsch Console serves as both a multifunctional 2.1 audio system and furniture centerpiece. Boasting cutting-edge design and engineering, the Klipsch console provides plug n’ play functionality for music, movies and television, in addition to its Airplay capabilities. There's plenty of inputs, including HDMI, optical and USB. To best produce the Klipsch sound signature, the unique system utilizes dual 90° x 60° Tractrix® Horns with 1.75in/44mm titanium dome, high-compression drivers featuring Linear Travel Suspension (LTS),10in/254mm machine-spun Cerametallic™ woofers with folded cones and huge motor structures, and 12in/300mm non-resonant, woven fiberglass subwoofer drivers with large, four-layer, aluminum-wound voice coils. For added impact, the Klipsch Console can also be used as a center channel and subwoofer solution for more extensive home theater setups.

    The Klipsch RoomGroove Air and Klipsch Stadium speakers will be available in the USA in fall 2012, with Klipsch Console following in winter 2012…. UK prices and ETAs to be confirmed
