After a long pause, we return to talk about the legendary brand of quality sound, Klipsch, which took the opportunity to announce the arrival on the market of the new ProMedia Heritage 2.1 audio system.
After the Cinema soundbars of July 2021. the American brand Klipsch Audio Technologies is back to being talked about with the Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 audio system, already available for purchase both on the official website and at online retailers.
The new ProMedia Heritage 2.1 audio system evokes the design of the Heresy speakers that Klipsch marketed around the middle of the last century, with a front covered in fabric and a shell that evoke the grain of wood, in this case in black and in the more natural brown walnut. . Basically, the apparatus is tripartite, with two satellites (109 x 140 x 203 mm) of 35 watts each (including a medium-low, with long stroke, sized at 76 mm, and a dome-type tweeter, 25 mm, in charge of a Tractrix horn) and a 150 watt subwoofer (305 x 254 x 381 mm) (including a 20 cm bass reflex-oriented driver).
As a consequence of this arrangement, the declared power is 220W (150W + 35W x 2). Equipped with a D amplification system and a 24-bit / 192 kHz DAC, credited with a response frequency ranging from 29 to 20,000 Hz, the Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 audio system is suitable for PCs, TVs, and consoles. In interacting with the sources, the newcomer uses various tricks. First of all, it is equipped with a Bluetooth connection, for wireless streaming (even from a suitable smart TV), but also has a USB Type-A port with music player for MP3 files, and a couple of RCA inputs (in the package, there is a built-in stereo audio cable with 3.5mm to RCA connectors).
The control of the Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 audio device can be implemented by a special remote control included which, borrowing a function already seen on the proprietary Cinema 800 soundbar, implements the so-called “Night mode”: by pressing the dedicated button, the overall dynamic range and, compared to the current one, also the volume (by 50%), so as not to disturb neighbors or any roommates.
As mentioned, the Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 can also be purchased on the official store, at a price of 349 dollars (against the 239.99 requested by CostCo): in the United Kingdom, the conversion led to a list of 359 pounds.
