FrontRunners: Stadium Sound

  • Klipsch Stadium music console
<< Back to Robb Report, December 2013

The $2,000 Klipsch Stadium music console (www.klipsch.com) may look unimposing, but the sound that the 28.5-pound, 21-inch-wide system produces is considerable. With a 400-watt onboard digital amplifier and a loudspeaker-like driver arrangement that includes a tweeter, a midrange driver, and a woofer for each channel (six drivers in total), the Stadium produces a whopping 112 dB of audio output. RCA, USB, and optical audio inputs on the back of the die-cast brushed-aluminum chassis allow for wired playback, though the Stadium also offers wireless playback from Bluetooth-, AirPlay-, and network-connected devices. The Stadium comes with a stand designed to hold such devices.
