The Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless speaker system is just about the most seamless, complete surround sound system available. It’s easy to setup, extremely flexible, future-proof and it sounds pretty dang great.
Of course, we know some of you may have questions about this brand spankin’ new technology, and we’re here to answer those questions. This is a new age for Klipsch and the audio industry as a whole, so we’re excited to guide you through the new paradigm that Reference Premiere HD Wireless speakers have created.
Here’s our first crack at frequently asked questions for the Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless speakers.
No! Say goodbye to the days of clunky AVRs that weigh as much as medium-sized child with interfaces that were outdated back when President Clinton was in office. Instead, the Klipsch HD Control Center has all of the inputs you need for gaming systems, cable TV, streaming or whatever: 4x HDMI, Digital Optical, Digital Coaxial, Stereo RCA and Bluetooth®.
Simply put, it replaces the AVR and is necessary for any Reference Premiere HD Wireless system.
Also, each speaker has integrated electronics (amplification and processing), which are perfectly matched to extract every ounce of performance possible out of each driver. So, each driver in our speakers has its own amplifier. For example, the RP-440WF has five separate amplifier channels for its high-frequency driver and four woofers.
This eliminates the guesswork related to pairing the correct amp, which means they deliver ultimate performance and no more blown drivers! (Who doesn’t love that?)
No. You will need to use these speakers in conjunction with the Klipsch HD Control Center.
Setup for Reference Premiere HD Wireless is a breeze. Once out of the box, it should take less than five minutes, even if you’re going with a 5.1 or 7.2 system. Watch our quick start guide to see just how easy it is - thanks to our proprietary Smart Speaker Selector.
Reference Premiere HD Wireless supports lossless wireless transmission of audio from the HD Control Center to the speakers. The speakers and the HD Control Center do require a power source.
Nope. Simply plug each speaker into an available outlet, use the Smart Speaker selector on the speakers’ rear panel and follow a few simple on-screen instructions.
Reference Premiere HD Wireless speakers communicate with the HD Control Center through WiSA technology, which contains timing information that keeps all of the speakers in perfect sync. Klipsch’s proprietary Smart Speaker Selector provides a single-button solution on the rear of each speaker that seamlessly makes the connection to the HD Control Center without the need for speaker wire or a complicated A/V receiver.
Simply put, WiSA is the technology that allows Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless speakers to communicate with each other wirelessly, ensuring high definition wireless audio.
With the WiSA protocol, content is transmitted over the 5.0 gigahertz band. Most WiFi traffic in your home is operating at the crowded 2.4 gigahertz band, which is used by cordless phones, baby monitors, wireless internet hubs, microwaves, etc.
The WiSA network is constantly monitoring the channels available to it. Anytime the system sees a channel with less traffic than the one it’s on, it will seamlessly jump to the new channel. This allows for robust transmission of your content, eliminating dropouts.
Better sound quality. Better connection. No Bullshit.
The WiSA network transmits lossless audio at rates up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution. It contains much more resolution than a typical CD at 48kHz/16-bit resolution. To preserve the quality of the source, we transmit the source material at its native rate all the way to the speaker. If the input is at 192kHz, we do a sample rate conversion to 96kHz.
Less than 5 milliseconds, which is inaudible to the human ear. This is superior to other wireless technologies.
Yes, the HD Control Center supports high quality Bluetooth® streaming from enabled devices.
Currently, the HD Control Center supports the following surround modes for Reference Premiere HD Wireless speakers:
Reference Premiere HD Wireless can play back Dolby Atmos content; however, it does not support elevation channels at this time. This is an addition we could make for version 2.0!
One of the coolest things about Reference Premiere HD Wireless is that there are a ton of different options for the way you set up your system. You can start with a 2.0 bookshelf system and work your way up to a 7.2 system, complete with RP-440WF floorstanding speakers as your rears and surrounds.
No! We are offering FREE firmware upgrades for the life of the product. This way you can expand and grow your system in confidence, knowing that you are going to have the best sounding speakers on the block…heck, even the city.
