Our Opinion - Trickle down technology, we have all heard of it but what does it mean ? Simply put it means that knowledge learnt from design techniques and materials used in higher end speakers have been used in the production of this model. Anyway, why am I talking about this.... Because Trickle Down Technology is evident here in the Klipsch R series speakers like the R 610F. Take for example the Tractrix Horn and Tractrix Bass Port, these are also used in the Reference Premiere range to great effect resulting in deep lows and crisp clean highs with a wide dispersion.Anyway, lets move onto the important bit, How Do They Sound ?
Klipsch may not be the most recognisable name in the UK home audio industry, but we were thoroughly impressed with the sound and build quality of the R-610F floor standing speakers. The midrange content flowing out of these speakers is the perfect combination of colourful and accurate, and the soaring high-frequency sounds are unobtrusive and natural. The cabinet is equal parts sturdy and attractive, and places the speakers at the perfect height for seated listening. In our music listening test, we played a wide range of musical genres, and the R610F welcomed us with clarity and accuracy. We were particularly impressed with the vocal reproduction. These speakers offer a wide sound stage, and did a great job of placing the vocals just in front of the other instruments. Acoustic instruments, like horns and strings, sounded as if the musicians were in our Hifi Demo Lounge giving us a private concert. The bass response is perfectly complimentary of the midrange and high-frequency content revealing a warm, enjoyable nature.
To put the Klipsch through its paces we played an action sequence from the movie “Mad Max: Fury Road” with an abundance of low rumbling effects accompanied by short snippets of dialogue. The R 610F had no problem placing the dialogue in front of the effects, and at the same time, producing impactful bass. The wide dispersion tweeter also did a good job of recreating the frenzied tone of gunfire.
In short, These speakers are an amazing value, and the perfect entrance into the audiophile realm - THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED
Standing at only 37" tall, yet able to produce deep bass extension, The R-610F floorstanding speaker takes your movies and music to another level by delivering incredible sound from our signature Klipsch horn-loaded tweeter and a spun-copper IMG woofer.
90º x 90º TRACTRIX HORN
Klipsch's exclusive Tractrix® horn technology delivers the power, detail and emotion of the live music experience with the cleanest, most natural sound possible.
LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS) ALUMINIUM TWEETER WITH KAPTON SUSPENSION
The exclusive Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) minimises distortion for enhanced, detailed performances. Kapton® is an extremely light and rigid material used in the tweeter suspension to provide high efficiency and improve resolution and detail. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of Klipsch speakers, making it a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.
SPUN COPPER IMG WOOFER
Injection Moulded Graphite (IMG) woofer cones are exceptionally light while being extremely rigid – providing remarkable low frequency response, with minimal cone breakup and distortion. When paired with the Tractrix Horn-loaded LTS tweeter, it provides speaker efficiency highest in its class.
REAR TRACTRIX PORT
The rear Tractrix port is perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofers, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion or turbulence even at the lowest frequencies.
Tapered array crossovers improve dispersion resulting in improved midrange definition - critical for dialogue rich material in centre channels.
