The Klipsch Forte III was initially released in 1985 and quickly established itself as one of Klipsch’s most popular speakers. So popular that requests from dealers and customers saw the reintroduction of it in 2017. The Forte III creates a massive sound from a relatively small footprint which it achieves with a 12-inch woofer, horn-loaded midrange and tweeter, and a rear 15-inch passive radiator. An Old School design and look with a fresh modern sound. It handles any genre of music, and at 99dB efficiency, a low powered tube amplifier can drive it to adequate volumes.
A true music fan’s system which places equal importance on CDs, LPs and streaming. It’s ultimately all about the music.
UPDATE: 2020 has brought many things into perspective. For many of our clients it brought an even deeper appreciation of the importance of quality music and movies in their homes. From the owner of this system:
As part of Clearaudio’s 40th anniversary, the great German turntable manufacturer, has taken another iconic Teutonic product, a 1978 VW Kombi and pimped its sound system.
Now, take me to the autobahn!
When the Yamaha YSP-1 was launched in 2005, it was so far ahead of the curve that there wasn’t even a term to describe it. The unit featured 2×4.5 and 40 x 2.5 inch powered drivers. Each of the 2.5-inch drivers had sophisticated DSP which simulated surround and fronts by creating a ‘beam’ and reflecting it off walls. This was truly a product ahead of its time and to this day Yamaha is the soundbar to beat.
