Klipsch has released the Apple AirPlay-enabled Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air. With this new speaker, listeners can turn their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a remote control that streams music wirelessly from iTunes to the Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air.
AirPlay is Apple technology for wireless music streaming. It gives music lovers complete access, control, and playback of their entire iTunes music library. It requires iTunes 10.1 or later.
With the ability to utilize any wireless network and embedded AirPlay technology, the G-17 Air streams high-quality audio directly from any iPod, iPhone or iPad capable of running iOS 4.2– all without wires and the need to dock the relevant device. iTunes can also be streamed from a Mac or PC to one or multiple G-17 Air systems in a home or office.
The G-17 Air also contains a USB input for direct digital connection and charging of most 30-pin Apple devices and a 3.5 mm analog input to accept almost every music player available. Measuring 17 inches in length and engineered for the ultimate sound experience, the G-17 Air captures the same distinct power, detail and emotion of Klipsch’s renowned horn-loaded speakers, says Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch.
Employing exclusive Tractrix Horn technology, the music system delivers legendary Klipsch sound, complete with reduced distortion and constant directivity for a live soundstage experience, he adds. The injection molded polymer cabinet has a front baffle that curves on both sides to create both an attractive design and a solid, low-resonance structure. The 12-step cabinet finishing process achieves a sleek, piano-black and high-gloss luster.
The Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air retails for US$549.99 and is available for purchase at Klipsch.com. To ensure delivery by December 25, consumers must purchase by December 20. All orders placed today, December 16, can select the free shipping option and still receive the Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air in time for Christmas.
