Klipsch introduces three new AirPlay-enabled sound systems


Klipsch has announced three new AirPlay sound systems — the compact RoomGroove Air, tabletop Stadium, and larger Console. All three will be released in late 2012.

After coming out with its first AirPlay speakers earlier this year, Klipsch is expanding the line with three new systems — the Stadium, RoomGroove Air, and Console. All three products can stream music wirelessly from iTunes and iOS devices; they also accept direct USB input for charging or using other music players. The RoomGroove Air, a compact speaker system that's the smallest of the three, has dual 1-inch tweeters and 2.5-inch woofers. The larger Stadium, shown above, has 1-inch tweeters, 3-inch midrange woofers and 5.25-inch built-in subwoofers. Both the Stadium and RoomGroove Air should be coming out in fall 2012.

The third system, the Console, is a combination sound system and furniture piece (something like a black end table), designed to accept HDMI, USB, and optical input in addition to AirPlay. It's meant to be able to function as either a music player or the centerpiece and subwoofer for a home theater system, and isn't coming out until winter 2012. We'll try to track these down and give them a listen this week.
