Brand New KlipschCast Technology in the CS-700 Home Theater System and the RoomGroove Satellite Speaker with iPod Dock will Revolutionize Home Audio
The new KlipschCast products will help save a lot of headaches for homeowners who want a great multi-room sound system but don’t want the hassle of re-wiring their entire house. The CS-700 Home Theater System paired with the RoomGroove satellite speaker (sold separately) make quite the one-two punch by wirelessly communicating a CD quality signal to different rooms of the house. This means that you can enjoy a movie in full surround sound in the living room, while someone else listens to the AM/FM radio on the RoomGroove in the bedroom upstairs. Not only does the CS-700 transmit to remote RoomGrooves in different locations, it also transmits to its wireless subwoofer that can be hidden away virtually anywhere in the listening area.
“With unmatched wireless competency and dynamic sound performance, our KlipschCast products fill the market gap for a high-quality multi-room audio system that’s easy to install and simple to operate,” said president of Klipsch Audio Technologies Mike Klipsch. “This platform allows users to easily expand their Klipsch sound from room-to-room without being tripped up or tied down.”
Simply, through its KlipschCast™ Technology, the CS-700 sends a wireless CD-quality audio signal to one or more RoomGroove systems. This signal can be the same one playing on the CS-700 or something entirely different: The CS-700 is capable of playing up to two separate sources at the same time. For example, the CS-700 can play a DVD movie in the living room, while the RoomGroove broadcasts the CS-700’s AM/FM tuner in the kitchen.
The RoomGroove can also play music locally utilizing its retractable iPod dock, or through its auxiliary input for other MP3 players. Since the RoomGroove is a transceiver, it can transmit as well as receive, allowing it to send this MP3 music signal to other RoomGroove units throughout the house. In fact, users could create a multi-room music system with just RoomGroove units if they desire. The robust 2.4gHz wireless technology found in these products offers
CS-700 DVD Entertainment System
This unobtrusive entertainment system uses digital processing circuitry to simulate the effect of a larger, five-speaker system with only two satellites, a subwoofer and an A/V center.
Each satellite employs dual magnetically shielded 3-inch woofers and a 0.75-inch magnetically shielded tweeter mated to an exclusive Tractrix® Horn, a design that delivers genuine lifelike sound as well as produces more output using less energy. Klipsch is the only speaker manufacturer to utilize horn technology in all of its product lines. In fact, the cutting-edge research that drives the development of the company’s leading movie cinema speakers is also applied in the CS-700.
The subwoofer utilizes an 8-inch down-firing woofer and 200 watts of amplifier power to generate hard-hitting bass response. Due to its compact size and wireless capability, this subwoofer can easily be hidden away while still delivering dramatic low-end effects.
The A/V center features Dolby® Virtual Speaker technology along with a progressive scan DVD player, AM/FM tuner and three auxiliary inputs, including High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). The CS-700 also features an HDMI output for passing digital signals to a TV. An easy-to-use universal IR remote control directs all system functions as well as those of the TV and other entertainment devices.
Available in a black finish, this system offers a clean, modern design that fits comfortably into any living environment. Essentially plug-and-play, the CS-700 can be operating in as little as 10 minutes. All it takes is hooking the satellites and TV up to the A/V center using the color-coded wiring and then plugging in the power cord. A step-by-step set up guide is included to walk users through the process.
The CS-700 is already being recognized by winning a 2007 Consumer Electronics Show Innovations Award for being among the best designed products for 2007.
RoomGroove Music Center
A true two-way design, this music system utilizes dual 2.5-inch high-output woofers in a ported enclosure, premium crossover networks and dual MicroTractrix™ Horn-loaded tweeters.
While the RoomGroove’s hidden dock accepts and charges all iPods with 30-pin connectors, it also comes with all current Apple universal well inserts to accommodate multiple iPod sizes. The dock opens and closes via the Klipsch logo touch sensor that’s located on the front of the unit. The RoomGroove is also compatible with other MP3 players via an auxiliary input.
Available in a black finish, the RoomGroove is ready to perform as soon as you plug it in and dock an iPod. Additionally, its shallow enclosure depth allows for low-profile wall mounting using the included hardware. A simple IR remote control lets users select different KlipschCast sources.
Both the CS-700 and RoomGroove satellite speaker are expected to hit the market sometime in April.
