When Klipsch debuted its KMC 3 Wireless Music System back in May, the press release hinted at an upscale followup dubbed the Klipsch Stadium, another result of the company’s partnership with Live Nation Entertainment. This week, Klipsch officially took the lids off of the Stadium, a truly audiophile-grade wireless music system with a truly audiophile-grade price.
Designed to reflect both the aesthetic and acoustic design of high end component systems, the Stadium features a 8.25″ x 21″ x 8.5″ brushed-aluminum cabinet with soft-touch accents, which houses Tractrix Horn technology, Faraday Ring-equipped aluminum mid drivers, and Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeters derived from Klipsch’s flagship $20,000/pair P-39F Floorstanding Speaker. Frequency response is an impressive 26Hz to 24KHz (±3dB), with an amp that delivers 400 watts of peak power.
The Stadium is also equipped with both AirPlay and apt-X Bluetooth connectivity. From the press release:
“Not only did we want to diversify our offering in the wireless audio category, but it was extremely important to introduce an impactful product that properly conveys our decades of legendary audio performance,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch. “With Klipsch Stadium, we’re fusing the traditional HiFi experience with today’s latest technology to completely alter the listening experience.”
The Klipsch Stadium will available in limited qualities starting in October, and you can preorder it now directly from Klipsch for $1,999.99.
Also teased in this press release is another addition to the Klipsch/Live Nation lineup: I jokingly asked in my write-up about the KMC 3 whether the company was taking a WD-40 approach to naming, or if we might eventually see a KMC 1 and KMC 2. Turns out, there actually is a KMC 1 in the works, and although we don’t have any details yet, it should be officially announced soon.
