    Klipsch Begins Shipping Its Versatile ‘The Three’ Portable Speaker

    (Klipsch) The new 'The Three' features voice control and a phono input
    (November 28, 2018) Klipsch has officially begun shipping its NexGen Heritage Wireless speaker called “The Three.” This stylish new table-top design features an exterior old-time appeal that harkens back to the mid-1950s, while offering modern voice control with Google Assistant built-in.

    Google Assistant is the most prominent piece of tech that Klipsch PR is highlighting on the speaker. Assistant provides voice activated control functionality, allowing owners to retrieve information by asking questions, stream a favorite song or album, get a rundown of the day’s biggest news, call a friend, control other smart home devices, check the weather, and more! The speaker is also compatible with Amazon Alexa for voice control through any Alexa-enabled device. Additionally, The Three carries both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth aptX connectivity for streaming from a variety of sources. Owners can also tap music via USB audio, RCA line level and phono inputs, and a 3.5mm stereo jack. And for you vinyl lovers, yes, the speaker does carry a ground and phono pre-amp for record playback!

    Unlike the smaller and more portable “The One,” The Three doesn’t have an onboard rechargeable battery. The two models do look strikingly similar, however, with walnut veneer cabinets, heather gray cloth grilles, and aluminum controls. The Three’s driver array consists of two 2.25“ full range drivers and a 5.25” long throw woofer, all of which are bi-amped and “professionally tuned by Klipsch acousticians.” Bass is further enhanced by dual opposed 5.25” passive radiators.
