What exactly are turntable-ready speakers? The answer is simple, it is an active speaker with a built-in phono preamp.
The Klipsch R-15PM speakers, which are turntable-ready, are meant for audiophiles who are either short on space or prefer convenience.
They are essentially plug-and-play speakers. You just have to plug the turntable’s jacks into the ‘Phono’ inputs on the rear panel of one of the Klipsch R-15PM speakers, turn the speaker’s power button on, adjust the volume knob and you’ll be listening to the LP in all its glorious analogue beauty.
The speakers also have digital inputs — a Toslink for your HDTV and a USB for your laptop. You can also pay songs from your handphone with a cable via its headphone jack to the speaker’s ‘Aux’ input. Finally, you can also use Bluetooth to play songs from a mobile device. Plus it comes with a remote control for more convenience.
Klipsch products are available at WKH Distribution, Plaza Ativo, Damansara Avenue, Bandar Sri Damansara, Kuala Lumpur. The Klipsch R-15Pm speakers retail at RM3,750 a pair. For more details, call Kenny Sea at 019-3395186, 03-62700035 or e-mail him at [email protected]
