Klipsch AirPlay Speakers
Klipsch is displaying three new AirPlay speakers at CES called “soundbars”. Basically one long horizontal unit in three different models: The Studio, Forum and Arena (shown below).
The Studio is said to be able to fill a small room with sound and will cost $399, the Forum slightly larger and will cost $599 and the Arena even bigger at a cost of $799.
They come equipped with Apple AirPlay support, iPod/iPhone docking, USB support and an auxiliary input to connect your TV or other device.
Expected release is summer or fall of 2011.
Wondering if i’m streaming video to my appletv is my only option to plug a cable into this system?.
Or is it smart enough to catch on to the stream?
You’ll need to plug a cable into it.
If it’s an Airplay enabled speaker, no, you won’t need to plug an Apple TV into it. That’s the point.
If you want video you need Apple TV; Just audio, then airplay speakers will work.
