If you are in the market for a new set of speakers and have very deep pockets, you may be interested in the new 70th Anniversary Klipschorn Speakers which are being created in a limited edition run of just 70 pairs and are available to purchase priced at$16,000.
The 70th Anniversary Klipschorn Speakers have been constructed using book matched, limited edition Australian Walnut wood veneer to make them as identical as possible and are equipped with patented folded-horn technology.
Each speaker features a small plaque identifying its numbered sequence in the series and is signed by the craftsman. As the only loudspeaker in the world to be continuously produced for 70 years, the Klipschorn has truly stood the test of time. Its patented low-frequency horn boasts a unique design that utilizes the floor and walls of the listening room, increasing the low frequency extension and efficiency. The original corner-horn loudspeaker’s folded low frequency enclosure offers the most efficient use of space possible. Simply put, this is a fundamental design that cannot be improved according to the laws of physics.
Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage series. The veneer leaves are kept in order as they are delicately sliced from the timber and precisely arranged to provide a mirror image at the splice joint – like turning the pages of a book. This gives each speaker an aesthetically appealing and consistent appearance that is treasured more than any other cut of wood veneer.
