Klipsch Kicks Off ‘Keepers of the Sound’ Video Series with Butch Walker

Klipsch

The Keepers of the Sound Series showcases pioneering artists who are authentic, uncompromising on quality, and always remain true to their core values. They work to create powerful, emotional experiences for their fans, and Klipsch strives to recreate the same experiences through our speakers and headphones.

The first installment in the video series features legendary American singer-songwriter and producer Butch Walker. Walker played in various metal/alternative bands from 1980- 2001 and began his solo career in 2002. He was named Rolling Stone’s “Producer of the Year” in 2005. Walker performed on, wrote and produced albums for artists including Taylor Swift, Train, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Keith Urban, Katy Perry, The Struts, Panic! At the Disco, Pete Yorn, Harry Connick Jr., Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and many more.

 

MEET BUTCH WALKER

The legendary American singer, songwriter and record producer, Butch Walker, began his incredible musical career in the early 1980s and has since collaborated with some of today’s biggest music stars including Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Pink, Fall Out Boy, Avril Lavigne, Panic! at the Disco and more. With a deeply-rooted desire to find the best sound possible and a style of his own, Butch Walker has become one of the greatest musical influencers you might not know.

“I’m constantly trying to figure out how to get the best sound. It’s a self satisfying goal as a producer…” – Butch Walker

Butch Walker grew up when audio was primarily analog-driven and he prefers to make music and create his sound by hand. His relentless attention to detail in his recording process captures a rich, full spectrum of audio, which in turn, offers a better listening experience. This spirit embodies the principles that Klipsch stands for.

Klipsch’s New Reference Premiere Speakers

Klipsch Reference Premiere Speakers

We can’t hear you over the awesome. That’s because we are demoing the new Klipsch Reference Premiere Speakers in our showrooms!

The new Reference™ Premiere series speakers from Klipsch is an enhanced version of the company’s award-winning, Reference Premiere series speakers which has been expanded to 16 models­ in three finishes. These second generation Reference Premiere speakers feature the latest technological audio advancements, premium material upgrades, and dramatic cosmetic details.

The series uses proprietary Tractrix® horn technology to improve high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics. An exclusive Linear Travel Suspension titanium tweeter maximizes dynamics, delivering detailed performances. A new, ultra-premium vented tweeter further smoothes high frequency response for enhanced detail and clarity. Klipsch signature copper Cerametallic™ woofers and Tractrix ports provide powerful low frequencies while minimizing distortion and maximizing efficiency.

New premium materials and dramatic design features used in the Klipsch Reference Premiere series are the epitome of modern elegance. The speakers come in three furniture-grade finishes – ebony, walnut, and hand-sanded piano gloss black. Cast aluminum feet give the speakers a modern appearance and minimize contact with the floor to reduce resonance. Signature Klipsch copper trim rings accentuate the tweeter and woofer, which can also be concealed by sturdy yet flexible magnetic grilles.

Klipsch Reference Premeire Speakers

“We’ve taken the successful foundation of our best-selling speakers and enhanced them to create the hands-down, best-sounding premium speakers on the planet at these price points,” said Michael Buratto, product manager for Klipsch.

CES 2018 Wrap-Up: Voice Control, Robo-puppies and Super Smart TVs

Ces 2018

CES 2018 Wrap-Up: Voice Control, Robo-puppies and Super Smart TVs.

Every January captains of industry, innovators and entrepreneurs gather in Las Vegas for the largest trade show on Earth – CES. The Consumer Electronics Show unveils to the world some of the most incredible, innovative products you’ll see anywhere. With more than 4,000 exhibiting companies and exhibit space of over 2.75 million square feet, CES was bigger than ever this year. We joined with over 180,000 attendees to find voice, connectivity and AI were the focal point of this year’s show. Here are just a few of our favorite innovations and tech trends that came out of the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show.

Alexa and Google Assistant

Voice assistants and AI are learning and evolving at a very rapid rate. This evolutionary technology is now able to make distinctions between different voices. Voice control is being integrated into all types of products. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant integration was in nearly everything at CES – wearables, headphones, TV remotes, vehicles and even toasters. These voice assistants will soon be included into your car’s dashboard. Panasonic announced its In-Vehicle Infotainment platform would start to work with both Alexa and Google Assistant via Android Auto. With this integration, you could control music, car temperature, even ask about driving distances or find out what’s on your calendar. There are also external Alexa devices you can add to your car such as Garmin’s Speak Plus which allows for full use of Amazon Alexa as well as a built-in dash cam.

Thanks to more and more companies adopting these new voice assistants, there are now more ways to use your voice to control your home than ever before. Samsung seems to be ahead of the pack, claiming “90 percent of Samsung’s devices are already Internet connected.” The company showed off essentially an entire home of connected devices – an internet-connected washing machine, an updated smart Refrigerator, smart speakers plus new smart TV’s acting as the hub of it all. Don’t want shell out a ton of money to get a voice assistant on your TV? Panasonic introduced a new 4K Blu-ray players with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant integration.

If you consider CES as a window into the future, by the year 2020 we will all be living like the Jetsons.

Smarter 4K TVs

With new TV product lines on display at every major TV manufacturer booth, quite a few are receiving Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa support. LG and Sony both announced select 2018 TVs would include a built-in Google Assistant which can be activated from the remote. This now allows you to do things like launch apps, play music through streaming services, control the smart home or even command the TV to turn off when a show ends. Both TV’s also offer hands-free control through Amazon Alexa and Google Home smart speakers.

Almost every TV on display at CES had 4K resolution (some with 8K). The processing power in these 4K TV’s is evolving. New processing chips, such as Sony’s X1 and X1 Extreme Processors, take any video content – whether it’s a streaming service, broadcast TV or Blu-ray – and upscale it to near 4K-quality picture. At CES, Sony previewed its new X1 Ultimate processor which provides better remastering of images and is capable of delivering 8K resolution. This is a big deal. The X1 Ultimate is two times more powerful than the current top-of-the-line X1 Extreme. It’s capable of analyzing each object on screen (frame-by-frame) to improve detail and clarity at every step. And it does it fast.

 

MicroLED

One of the most innovative products we saw at CES came in the form of a wall. Samsung unveiled a massive, 146-inch modular TV called The Wall. Since the TV is modular, you can customize it to be even bigger! According to Samsung, “Users can add or remove modules to make their TV bigger or smaller, in any configuration, removing previous limitations on screen size, with zero impact on performance of the display.”

The big screen is impressive but it’s the technology behind it that makes it unique. Samsung’s brand-new technology is called MicroLED and competes with LG’s OLED (or organic light-emitting diode). From the demo we saw, MicroLED definitely has the potential to match OLED in terms of picture quality. Since each LED can turn on or off individually, MicroLED could offer infinite contrast similar to OLED. The new technology also offers incredible brightness, vibrant color and near-perfect off-angle viewing. Unlike OLED, Samsung promises MicroLED to be brighter and immune to burn-in. The MicroLED technology will make its way to smaller TVs in the next few years according to Samsung. As for the Wall, no pricing or availability was announced.

 

Robo-Puppy Alert

The CES award for cutest tech product goes to… Sony’s Aibo robot dog. The robo-dog understands a handful of English-language directions, including hand-shake and sit commands. It has glass OLED eyes and a camera inside its nose, which can act as a webcam for your home when you’re away. You may have to wait to pick one up. Aibo is available currently in Japan only and costs approximately $1800.

 

4K Ultra Short Throw Projector

Want the ultimate cinema experience in your home without the need to mount a projector? Sony has unveiled the best of best 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector. Sony’s 2,500 lumen Short Throw Projector is capable of displaying a 120-inch 4K HDR quality picture on your wall. Sony has packed in their unique 4K SXRD projection and HDR technology into a beautifully designed short throw projector. The projector also features a Glass Sound Speaker hidden in the base capable of generating 360-degree audio.

Its innovations and products like these that make each CES bigger and better than before. Only 51 weeks to go until CES 2019!
