“Hey Google” Voice Activated Retro Speaker
Klipsch recently released their next generation Heritage Wireless table-top wireless speaker called The Three with the Google Assistant built-in for $499. Competing at the high-end of voice-assistant speakers, The Three combines mid-century modern design, premium materials such as real wood veneer, and aluminum switches and knobs, and Bluetooth wireless technology.
Audiophiles will appreciate its 92kHz / 24-bit decoding for flawless reproduction of high resolution audio tracks on services that support high resolution audio. Plus, it’s multi-room ready if you want to buy more than one.
With Chromecast and Google Assistant built-in, it can easily play music, find answers on Google Search, manage everyday tasks, and control smart devices around your home—just by using your voice. Listen to your favorite song, find a delicious brownie recipe, or check your commute to work. Just start by saying “Hey Google” to start a conversation.
Like the speaker, but don’t want Google Assistant listening via the microphone? Klipsch does offer a standard version of The Three that only has Bluetooth. Unfortunately, you won’t say any money.
