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.

Turn your family down and your show up? It’s time to reverse that!

We have been blogging for months about how important it is to have excellent audio in your home media room and how it doesn’t make sense to have an excellent media room without excellent sound. I recently read an article that gave me new insight into the reasons ALL of us need great speakers in our media room and I want to share some of this with you, our Starpower fans!

First of all, televisions are being made better than ever before as far as the picture is concerned. They have also been made thinner for the sake of convenience. If you put these two modern features together, but don’t attached a great set of speakers with them, you are doing yourself and everyone in the room an injustice. Just as you deserved that outstanding TV, you deserve great audio to go right along with it.

Television and movie producers pack so much sound into their shows and films that it is impossible to hear all of the details we were meant to hear with simple television speakers. Some of the background sound effects that are in every movie are easily missed without an effective surround sound system in place. Even a cheap surround sound system can offer you better quality than nothing.

But if you have the budget to do it right, then let Starpower set your heart on a set of speakers that will change your movie watching experience forever. We know our brands and we get the latest and greatest product information from some of the most outstanding audiophiles.

We would like to suggest a few speakers and best surround sound systems that we consider the top 5 in audio systems:

  • JBL Synthesis
  • Marantz
  • Klipsch
  • Pioneer
  • Harmon Kardon Speakers

Another tip to remember is that you shouldn’t be intimidated by the old fashioned 5.1 speakers with 6 pieces and cords everywhere. We can now go all the way up to a 7.1 surround sound with no visible wires and sleek thin stylish bodied speakers.  Get the best surround sound system that works for your media room—check out the 7.1 surround sound features and other speaker systems on the Starpower showroom floor.

Stop turning up your television and asking everyone to hush when your favorite television show is on, come get a speaker system that will make you proud and I guarantee you won’t have to turn your family down and your show up ever again.

JBL Synthesis Project Array!

JBL Synthesis Project Array

On display at Starpower Dallas right now is a product by JBL Synthesis called The Synthesis Project Array System. You will not want to miss out on the opportunity to come and see, touch and test this outstanding speaker product.

This system is super unique for two reasons: 1) JBL Synthesis has long been considered the best in high-fidelity commercial use speakers and 2) Project Array is a JBL Synthesis high-fidelity speaker built for your residence for the first time ever.

JBL and Starpower

Since 1960 JBL Synthesis has been producing speakers that are of great quality that have earned great respect. Whether you realize it or not, JBL Synthesis speakers have most likely been a part of your life because they are widely used in theaters, at press conferences, in mega churches, and at concerts. Starpower is extremely proud to offer you the opportunity to test out this product before you take it home, but even more proud to be able to offer you JBL Synthesis for your personal space.

The JBL Synthesis Project Array System is the highest quality home theater surround sound system that has yet graced the market, and with the reputation they have, it’s a purchase that will not be regretted. Here are some cool details about this exceptional speaker product:

There are three systems to choose from:

The 800, the 1000, the 1400 — the difference is both in the size, and the punch they pack.

Each has a pure titanium compression driver complete with aluminum edge-wound voice coil, mounted in SonoGlass constant-directivity horn.

Each system is made with the finest grade materials, in an unconventional design that has proven to be more efficient than any before it.

Come by and see the JBL Synthesis Project Array System for yourself. You can’t beat investing your money in a product that comes complete with an awesome reputation.  If this particular speaker isn’t exactly what you need, ask Starpower about the other JBL Synthesis speaker products.

My “Bigger is Better…Best Bang for the Buck” Pick!

As a master of “best bang for the buck” shopping it is not often that I claim “bigger is better.” But occasionally there is just no other way to look at electronics. Especially when the bigger product is better, and more affordable!

My “bigger is better…best bang for the buck” product of the month is the Pioneer SP-PK21BS speaker system. The best way to compare what I am talking about is to suggest you take a look at the picture I’m posting with this article. This select group of home theater components are among some of the top rated speaker and surround sound systems on the market today.

The Pioneer SP-PK21BS speaker system offers outstanding sound with clear, crisp bass and exceptional clarity. This home theater audio system is a 5.1 surround sound satellite subwoofer system and it is noticeably larger than other more classic 5.1 surround sound systems. It is being reviewed as one of the best speaker sytstems among bloggers, consumers, and CNET reviewers. The only complaint so far is its size. Though the size of this set is a bit larger than some of the other new speakers that are on electronic showroom floors, it is not stopping audio buffs from making this top find purchase. As I have mentioned before, smaller speakers are not always the best speaker systems. They are internally designed to deliver the mass quantity (and quality) of bass that this Pioneer set effortlessly delivers. Take for instance the beautiful sleek looking sound bars that are popular among home theaters; they are no doubt elegant and savvy. However, they do not deliver bass, and high quality surround sound like the Pioneer SP-PK21BS speaker system does. Another idea to keep in mind is that though they do not deliver equal quality sound…these sound bars can cost as much as the Pioneer SP-PK21BS. So now do you understand why the Pioneer is my “bigger is better…best bang for your buck” product of the month?

Come check it out for yourself at Starpower Home Entertainment. We have locations in Phoenix, Arizona, Scottsdale, Arizona as well as several through the DFW metroplex.

Dolby Atmos: The Next Big Thing in Home Theater

Dolby Atmos is the Next Big Thing in Home Theater

Prepare yourself for a truly immersive audio solution with Dolby Atmos.

We have been living in a 2D world when it comes to home theatre audio. We still think that traditional 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound systems are the ultimate experience when it comes to sound. However you might want to reconsder!

A 5.1 system has 3 speakers in the front, left and right surround and a subwoofer. In case of a 7.1 system left and right speakers are added behind you. However, in this arrangement, you and the speakers are in a single plain. Any of these systems don’t have a way to deliver sound from above you.

When we consider the audio recording process for movies and music, equipment and sound quality have improved over the years. But, there was no technology available to capture and deliver truly 3D sound where audio comes from around you as well as above you. Mounting your speakers in the ceiling won’t do the trick! Your playback instrument cannot take this placement into consideration.
