Energy® Enhances Premier Veritas Speakers
INDIANAPOLIS (September 13, 2010) — Energy®, a Klipsch Group, Inc. brand and industry leader in audio engineering and development, is announcing today the launch of its new line of Veritas home audio speakers. Featuring Energy's proprietary Convergent Source Module (CSM) technology, these eight all-new Veritas models are designed to deliver musical truth to make your music and movies come alive with direct and powerful sound.
Serving as the premier flagship line since its inception, Energy Veritas speakers are known for their sonic accuracy and dramatic spatial reproduction of the live concert performance. Featuring a world-class design and innovative new audio technologies, the latest Veritas speakers stay true to Energy sound principles and present unrivaled flat on-axis frequency response and minimal levels of distortion and resonance. The latest series also features advanced high-definition crossover networks, improved woofers, new voicing and attractive, elegant wood cabinetry.
The eight new models consist of two floorstanding towers (V-6.3 and V-6.2), two bookshelf models (V-5.1 and V-Mini), two center channels (V-5.2-C and V-Mini-C), one surround speaker (V-S) and a subwoofer (V-SW10).
All of the new Energy Veritas speakers feature one-inch pure aluminum tweeters to ensure clear, accurate highs for the most detailed listening experience. Woofers complete with Ribbed Elliptical Surround also work to deliver tight and powerful distortion-free low-frequency response. Unique to Energy speakers, the CSM technology places tweeters and mid-woofers in close proximity to act as a single source for coherent, seamless dispersion. The speakers effectively disappear, sonically. Available in a high gloss piano black and piano rosenut finish, each Veritas model conveys a timeless beauty that is ideal for any décor.
"We are especially proud of the new Veritas series because it marks the first time Klipsch Group engineers have collaborated on an Energy flagship product line," said Mark Casavant, vice president of product development for Klipsch Group, Inc. "Determined to instill the same renowned audio expertise that has gone into all Energy speakers, we are pleased to offer a new product line that propels the flagship Veritas series to an even higher level of audiophile performance. Veritas offers movie and music lovers alike ultimate audio quality, lasting value and unrivalled design. It sounds as good as it looks – stunning!"
The new lineup of Energy Veritas speakers now cover U.S. MSRP price points ranging from $2,200 to $3,000 for a pair of floorstanding speakers, $450 to $800 for a pair of bookshelf models, $275 to $800 for a center channel, $1,000 for a pair of surrounds and $1,000 for a subwoofer. The Veritas series will be available for purchase in select specialty audio retailers nationwide on September 15.
