Sound that Packs a Punch

A truly powerful, small, form-factor music monster packed with Klipsch acoustics with integrated power and Bluetooth wireless technology.

Designed for Simple Setup with Your Turntable, TV, Computer, or Wireless Device

With an integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth wireless technology, digital optical, analog RCA, and USB inputs, your R-51PM is the best performing, most versatile monitor on the planet.

Dynamic Bass EQ

As the human ear perceives frequencies differently with variations in output, the R-51PM will dynamically match the ear's ability to hear low frequencies. Typically, only available with audio/video receivers, dynamic volume is a first for Klipsch powered monitors. What you get is powerful bass, whether the listening volume is low, cranked up, or somewhere in between.

High Efficiency Amplification

Forget the expense, clutter, and hassle of an external A/V receiver. The R-51PM monitors incorporate individual ultra-low noise amplifiers custom-designed to maximize system performance and eliminate the need for external amplification.

Full Featured IR Remote

Allows easy access to system features like dedicated source selection, track controls, and play/pause.

System Expandability

Add a subwoofer to enhance for even more bass.

Powerful clear sound
I asked a neighbor (a tech guy) if he could recommend a set of speakers that would blow my mind. My only regret is I didn't purchase this sooner

GREAT SOUND! small package
They just arrived a week ago and I hooked them up to the TV immediately. Using the optical output on the TV. Compared them one on one with my pair of AR-8 speakers, the little Klipshs sound SO MUCH better! It's just amazing to me how good they are. Those that are complaining about the hiss just need to turn down the main volume control a little bit, at full volume there's some hiss with no input, turn it down just a touch and it's gone.
I use this to listen to the TV and DVDs plus I can put a CD in the DVD player and listen to my old CDs when I want to. I've also used the bluetooth connection to my phone to play music. It all works great and sounds SUPER!

Good sound but strong interference.
I first got a pair of these and the left/passive speaker had strong interference and hiss coming from it. Like "GSM phone is about to ring"-sound. Returned it since I thought it was faulty. Got a new pair. Same issue.
The store then got my initial pair back from repair and I got it back home. Same issue with the repaired one. Bought some ferrite rings and faraday fabric to shield the speaker and wires. Works like 97%. But, looks like garbage and when there is complete silence in movies or music pauses I can still hear the interference. I have tried grounding them, changing power outlets. I have tried turning of all electrical components in my apartment but the problem is still there. Im assuming the signal is coming from outside. Other active speakers have never had this issue when placed on the same spot. On all the pictures people are using them for their laptop/computer. Im sitting 4 meters away from them and cant stand the interference sound.

They sound good but using is a little buggy
Bought these for my home office and they are on corners of my 2 meter wide table 15cm of the wall. I listen mainly from sitting in between with 1 meter distance, but I also have a bed in the room where I listen from 3 meters away.

First I noticed the quiet hiss when the pair is turned on. It's quite loud actually on close range and low volume listening. Not so prevalent when I'm 3 meters away or if listened louder but I know it's there and it's troubling.

Secondly there were the usability issues with the dynamic bass eq and it being automatically enabled. I don't like the feature, it's way too much bass for rock music I think. Actually it gives something extra for big drums and bass in classical symphony music, but otherwise it's just annoying. So every time you fire up the speakers you first need to disable the feature, which is done by pressing the sub button from remote for 3 seconds.

Auto power on was something I was hoping to be working much better. My music source is the AUX input where I have my Chromecast. If I start music the speakers turn on but in USB mode, so there is no sound. Also if there was sound, then I would also need to disable the dynamic bass eq. So if you want a system that starts up when you press play on your player, then this is not for you.

White Noise
Sound is perfect. But I listen white noise without connected devices and on pauses. Noise level doesn't change with sound level.

Best bookshelf monitors ever
I just received these today. I can't believe how great they are. I purchased the r-14 pms last year and loved them. These are light years better. Set them up in 10 minutes. I could not be happier. And I am thrilled I got them for the black friday price. Don't miss out on this deal. And I have no connection to Klipsch whatsoever.
