Klipsch

Klipsch is getting into active speakers in 2016 in a big way and every single product at its CES 2016 booth, bar two, featured onboard amplification.

One of the most interesting products was the Klipsch Reference Premiere R-15PM powered monitor. The R-15PM appears similar, though smaller, to the passive Klipsch RP-150M speakers which got a thumbs-up from CNET's Steve Guttenberg.

The R-15PM is an active stereo pair which can used as a desktop speaker or as a home theater/stereo system. The speaker offers a number of different connectivity options including Bluetooth, digital optical, analog RCA and USB audio inputs as well as -- fairly unusually -- a phono preamp to connect a turntable to.

The Klipsch was previewed at CEDIA in 2015 and upon its launch at CES is now available to buy for $499. Australian and UK availability and pricing is yet to be announced.
