Klipsch just released an all-in-one Dolby Atmos floorstanding speaker with a built-in elevation channel for $599 each. The new Klipsch R-26FA Reference series loudspeaker includes two front-facing 6-inch woofers and a horn-loaded tweeter, along with an up-ward firing 5-1/4″ woofer and another horn tweeter. This design allows sound to reflect off the ceiling to create more enveloping sound from Dolby Atmos tracks.
Dolby Atmos delivers captivating, object-based sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill a home theater with astonishing clarity, detail, and depth.
“As demand for Dolby Atmos technology has grown, we are excited to offer a wider range of options that deliver this immersive and emotive sound experience with all the power, detail and emotion that Klipsch is known for,” stated Rob Standley, vice president and general manager, professional and component speaker solutions at Klipsch.
The Klipsch Reference Dolby Atmos enabled home theater speaker line up consists of Klipsch R-26FA and the previously released larger RP-280FA Reference Premiere model. In addition, The Klipsch R-14SA elevation speakers add the Dolby Atmos effect to any existing bookshelf or tower speaker to complete a hemisphere of rich, detailed sound, or can also be used as a side surround speaker for standard surround formats.
