Worried about your WiFi network affecting your wireless speakers? With Klipsch’s new Reference Premiere HD Wireless Control Hub, you’ll never have to worry about a throttled network. This hub creates a dedicated wireless network to help avoid any interference caused by bandwidth constraints, and is simple to setup using the step-by-step instructions on the main menu. It's a necessity to have this if you plan on expanding to the Klipsch Wireless Speaker world!
One System, Perfect Control
If you’re looking for a high-performance sound system that’s simple to set up and endlessly versatile, we at World Wide highly recommend Klipsch’s Reference Premiere HD Wireless Control Center. It’s self-contained and network-savvy: No complex AV receiver needed, no stringing of speaker cables, and no complex setup, just easy on-screen menus and a few buttons to push. The Reference Premiere HD Wireless Control Center is the centerpiece of that system, paired with your choice of Klipsch wireless speakers. And – nearly unheard of in today’s high tech – Klipsch virtually guarantees the system you buy today won’t become obsolete tomorrow.
Part of a Complete Sound System
We live in a wonderfully wireless world. Our phones, tablets, laptops, music servers and video libraries – even our refrigerators! – communicate through thin air. But when we set up our home theaters, we still uncoil cords and unspool wires. We drape complex connections behind cabinets. We fish speaker wires through walls. We wiggle into crawlspaces. We run cables under rugs, staple them to baseboards, and hope guests won’t notice (or, worse, trip over them). How 20th century.
Lose Wires, Not Quality
Klipsch, the Indiana speaker company whose name has been synonymous with top-notch home and theatrical sound for more than 60 years, has designed an elegant 21st century solution. The Reference Premiere HD Wireless System starts with some of Klipsch’s finest speakers, builds in perfectly matched amplifiers, and ties them all together with a simple control center that connects wirelessly to the speakers. Voila! A great-sounding system for movies and music, with no messy wires crisscrossing the carpet.
The Brains of the Operation
Operating any of Klipsch’s Reference Premiere HD wireless speakers requires the wireless Control Center. It sports plenty of inputs – 4 HDMI ports with pass-through capabilities for the latest 4K ultra-high definition video, coaxial and optical inputs for digital audio, analog audio inputs and even Bluetooth capability for mobile music streaming. As you add speakers, the Control Center knows and automatically adjusts; simply put, this Klipsch hub does it all!
Versatile and Compact
This simple box decodes the major surround-sound formats, and it handles the latest high-definition downloadable music files, at up to 24-bit/192 kHz. The convenient remote or push buttons on top of the box offer a full range of control. And the Control Center generates its own wireless network, avoiding any interference with your existing home WiFi network.
With the purchase of the Control Center or any of the combination systems, you get a guarantee against obsolescence. Klipsch will update the box’s software regularly as technology advances warrant. And if there’s a need to swap out the circuitry, Klipsch even includes one free upgrade of the hardware itself!
Best of all, because it’s a modular system, you can add pieces as your bank account allows. Or purchase prepackaged systems in multiple configurations, often at significant savings, from simple 2.1 and 3.1 systems to 7.1 and 7.2 elaborate surround systems (remember, the point-one and point-two are always the subwoofers), to match your needs.
We Recommend Adding:
-- Two RP-440WF Reference Premiere HD Wireless Floorstanding tower speakers for a stunning stereo setup (or four for concert-hall surround).
-- The RP-110WSW Wireless Subwoofer for those action-movie soundtracks.
-- The RP-440WC Wireless Center Speaker for crystal-clear dialogue and special effects.
-- And the RP-140WM Wireless Bookshelf Speakers, as surrounds or for a compact stereo system.
WWS: What We Say
“This system has lots of advantages. It saves space, there are fewer cables, you can move it from room to room, and as some people find AV receivers difficult to use, there’s no receiver to deal with. It still has the Klipsch signature sound. And the amplifiers are designed to work perfectly with the speakers. This is a good marriage, like peanut butter and jelly.” – Dave Sailer, WWS product specialist
