It can be difficult to find a turntable bundle that includes a high quality turntable and an excellent speaker system to listen to it with. Fortunately, this bundle from Klipsch includes exactly that.
The Klipsch R-15PM bundle includes a turntable and two speakers that have been specifically created to work together. The incredibly acoustic performance this perfectly matching set provides is sure to be a favorite for any true music lovers.
About The Product
This turntable set is clearly in the higher pricing end, but if you read the rest of this review, we think you’ll end up agreeing that it really is well worth the price. And although the speakers can be sold separately, it’s the set together that really makes both turntable and speakers shine.
Let’s take a look at what sets this beauty of a turntable bundle apart from all other turntable and speaker combos out there on the market. And we should mention that there aren’t actually too many of those – in fact finding a turntable, and speakers made especially for it, is quite rare.
High Tech Features
Reviewers are raving over the cool modern features that this turntable set provides. It’s like Klipsch have taken the best of old turntable technology and mixed it with modern day digital electronics.
- The result is a Bluetooth enabled turntable set!
- This set can be hooked up to any computer or television, or used stand-alone.
With an option of going old school and playing vinyl’s straight from your turntable into your speakers, or using digital formats at other times, this set allows you to be versatile.
These turntables are handcrafted to give each one a unique and high quality finish that has a distinctly personal feel to it. Some of the key features to be aware of include:
- Synchronous AC motor makes for low vibrations and excellent sound quality
- Tonearm is 8.6” worth of aluminium
- Magnetic cartridge is a low-distortion Ortofon OM 5e (audiophiles rejoice)
Overall, the actual turntable of this setup is a real winner in and of itself. So even if you’re not keen on getting the matching set with speakers, we’d still recommend the turntable only as an option.
One of the main points brought up by reviewers of these speakers is that they sound larger than they are. Depending on whether you’re the quite music lover or a loud party household, this could be a good or a bad thing. For our part, we like speakers with a bit of oomph to them.
The actual playback quality of the speaker system is excellent, with the rendering of both mid and high-frequency pitches being spot on.
To those who prioritize convenience the lack of any need for a receiver is a bonus as well.
A few other features to note include:
- Speakers are two-way
- They are built with Klipsch’s 90x90 Linear Travel Suspension Tractrix horn
- They include a rigid injection molded graphite woofer
- They have a rear-firing base port that is perfectly tuned
All of this together is what makes these speakers so unique and special. When paired with the turntable they were created for they truly amaze and we love that the set works so well together.
Finally, on the list of things we like about the Klipsch R-15PM Turntable bundle is the stylish design of the set. It’s all been perfectly color coordinated with matching materials used on the external case of the turntable and both speakers.
The Klipsch logo is proudly displayed for those who are into branding, and the subtle hints of orange help to brighten up the dark intensity of the black/brown wooden texture of the set.
Super easy to set-up and get going with, this bundle would effortlessly transform a normal room into an awesome looking music room.
What We Don’t Like About The Klipsch Turntable Bundle
Unfortunately, in the case of the Klipsch R-15PM Turntable bundle, most reviewers are a little upset at the seemingly unreachably high price tag.
So, before you start dreaming about owning this set, do consider whether you can fit it into your budget.
If you can afford to get the entire set at once then it’s definitely a good long-term investment as the parts have clearly been made to last. Quality is often expensive in the turntable market and we’re afraid the Klipsch Turntable bundle is a good example of that.
If you consider that you’re getting both a turntable and two speakers though you’ll be able to calculate that overall, you’re paying the same as if you’d just paid for individual good quality components (probably even a little less than what this quality is worth).
Ranging upwards in price from around $580, this turntable set can be purchased from a number of online and instore retailers.
Rather than purchasing from an untrusted/unknown source, we’d recommend you stick with a big retailer like Amazon. Not only will big retailers be able to give you a good price, but you can also rely on them to deliver on such a high value item.
Hey, you might even get free shipping thrown in!
The Klipsch R-15PM Turntable bundle will keep any audio lover happy for a very long time. And in addition to sounding awesome, this set looks awesome as well.
We are particularly taken by the fact that parts of it are hand-crafted (a rare find in this day and age) and that all the pieces were literally made for each other, it doesn’t get much more perfect that that.
You can be confident of buying high quality at this price point and from such a respectable brand. So, our best advice, if you have the money, this is the turntable set to get!
