Klipsch WiSA Home Audio System

Starpower Klipsch Wisa Home Audio System

Klipsch WiSA System

For over 65 years, Klipsch has designed premium speakers for audio enthusiasts truly passionate about sound. With the latest technology from Klipsch, you can kiss your speaker wires and AV receiver goodbye thanks to their new wireless home theater system. The Klipsch WiSA system is now available at Starpower, located in the greater Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas and Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona areas.

The days of the AV receiver and messy speaker wires are over! Klipsch now offers a wireless home theater system that eliminates the entire external amplification. Klipsch worked with the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association (WiSA) to develop an entire sound system based on a wireless transmitter hub, much like a Wi-Fi router.

What in Included in the Klipsch WiSA System?

The Klipsch WiSA system contains tower speakers, a subwoofer, monitor speakers and a center channel speaker. The center channel speaker features a two-way design and uses the same horn and driver technology as the impressive Reference Premiere series. Modeled after the new Reference Premiere subwoofer, the system’s subwoofer offers the same punch with WiSA wireless connectivity.

How is the Klipsch WiSA System Powered?

A distribution hub allows you to connect up to 4 HDMI equipped devices, Bluetooth wireless technology, analog and digital optical sources with ease. The “brain” of the system processes multi-channel inputs and distributes them wirelessly.

The wireless transmission is capable of handling up to 24 bit/96 kHz audio. The hub’s processing chip is capable of handling up to 7.2 channels of surround sound.

Benefits of the Klipsch WiSA system include:

  • Easy out-of-box set up
  • Wireless connectivity
  • Reference Premiere audio technology
  • Electronics designed to control the signal path from the source to the speaker

Fewer Speakers, Better Sound?!

So it wasn’t too long ago that we talked about Surround Sound and I explained that the 7.1 was the newest and coolest speaker system out there. Well I stand corrected!  Panasonic has created a 7.1 that is (get this) 3D meets wireless meets space saver. The new SC-ZT2 by Panasonic Wireless has only two speakers that rise up on thin sleek poles. The speakers are downward firing, and both contain woofers.

In case you have forgotten, the fact that it is downward firing means you can put this baby anywhere! So what does it mean that a speaker is 3D? Does this mean you will have to wear a special plastic contraption on your ears, like we all did on our eyes when 3D movies came out?  NO.

This system simply has the ability to pick up when a 3D movie is being played, and you can literally hear the difference in dimensions!

The Sleek Surround Sound Speaker System

If you do not enjoy the idea, or the look of a speaker for every additional audio channel (6 speakers for 6.1, 7 speakers for 7.1) then these new speakers are for you. Theses speakers perfectly compliment the look of today’s flat screen panels and offer your home a less cluttered version of the same home theater which knocked off your socks with seven speakers, in just two speakers. This system is as good as it gets for 3D Home Entertainment.

Home Surround Sound | What System Is Best For You?

Starpower Home Surround Sound | What System Is Best For You?

We all know that somewhere deep inside of us there is a rock star, dramatic actress or star athlete hiding away, daring to come out. With high-performance and heart-pounding sound, the new state-of-the-art surround sound systems for homes today transform the living room into an easily accessible and more comfortable movie theater.

There is a surround sound system for every type of space, with one simple Starpower consultation, it won’t take long to decide which surround speakers are best for you. The most commonly owned sound systems for homes that include a surround sound package for a room wired for music, is a 5.1. These numbers (5.1, 6.1, 7.1) actually refer to the number of available sound channels, but also refers to the number of actual speakers present. 6.1 surround speakers are becoming the standard for most home theaters. Upgrading to surround sound 7.1 provides the consumer the most detailed sound effects available at this time. When surround speakers are set up properly with a 7.1 there is less loss of sound. It is a common complaint of consumers that with the 5.1 and 6.1 those sitting outside of the “sweet spot” do not get the total effect of the sound.  Surround sound 7.1 has two speakers more than the 5.1, and allows for a larger “sweet spot.”

Is the 7.1 right for you? Well, this depends on the size of the room you plan to install the system in. A standard sized room would be best suited with a 5.1, but if your room is large enough to accompany the volume, and the extra speakers of the surround sound 7.1, then this system will definitely make you proud.

Music to One’s Ears

Starpower Music To One'S Ears

If you read my some of my past blogs, then you probably saw the one about SONOS, the really cool system that allows you to listen to music from several different sources in any room of the house.  Well I’m excited to talk about something very similar EXCEPT with this system you don’t have to have a box sitting somewhere in your house. Box or no box, the SONOS is absolutely cool and an amazing device to have, but with all of the products on the market today, it doesn’t stop and end there.

For those of you who didn’t have a chance to read the SONOS blog, let me back up a step and introduce multi-room audio. Multi-room audio is the ability to listen to music via almost unlimited sources (CD, IPODSIRIUS, Pandora etc.) in any room of your house.  You can also listen from a different source in each room. Mom can rock out to the oldies in the gym, Dad can clean the pool to Merle in the back yard, and brother and sister can study while jamming to the latest and greatest in their I-libraries in their bedrooms.

One system that I find very intriguing is the Russound System. This system is fantastic because it is built into the walls of a new home, or can still be built into the walls of an existing home. This system does not take up any room on your desk or dresser, and all you ever see is the panel on the wall of each room you want it in. This multi-room audio is top notch because it can also serve as an intercom system.  Talk about serious automation.

Of course, Starpower Home Entertainment always has several brands to choose from, so if your sold on the idea of a multi-room audio system but want to examine your options, then stop by your nearest Starpower today and start talking about your first step towards wireless audio to suit everyone’s style.

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

Starpower 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.

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

Starpower 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?
