Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1: Desktop Bluetooth Triphonic
The Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 compact desktop audio system is a classic triphonic, as can be seen from the 2.1 index. The vintage chopped design with classic acoustically transparent fabric grills should remind the owner of the ProMedia Heritage 2.1 of the 75th anniversary of Klipsch Horn and of such classic models as Heresey and La Scala.
ProMedia Heritage 2.1 satellites are 203mm x 140mm x 109mm in size typical of small bookshelf or computer speakers. However, the 1-inch polymer compression tweeter cones are complemented by Klipsch Tractrix Horn “semi-horn” waveguides. The mids are handled by 4-inch drivers with plastic-filled fiber cones. The 8-inch subwoofer speaker is similarly arranged.
The system is fully active. On board are Class D amplifiers with a power of 2 x 35 W for satellites and 150 W for a subwoofer. Klipsch especially emphasizes the low noise level of the novelty. The frequency range is from 29 Hz to 20 kHz. Because, probably, the subwoofer is much larger than the satellites: 305 x 254 x 381 mm.
Multimedia specialization Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 confirms the presence of a USB connection. However, music can also be streamed from a smartphone via Bluetooth or from an analog source via cable via a pair of RCA connectors. The ProMedia Heritage 2.1 cabinets are made from MDF and covered in Black Ash or Black vinyl.
In Europe, the suggested retail price of the Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 triphonic was 400 euros.
