Loewe Launch New Wireless Loudspeaker
Loewe will be exhibiting the exceptional klang 5 speakers and sub together with the new bild 7 OLED TV at Sound & Vision – the Bristol Show (24th - 26th Feb) – make sure you don’t miss this exceptional AV set-up!
With a sleek and minimalist form which slips effortlessly into any environment yet hides sophisticated audio engineering within, each klang 5 speaker incorporates five drive units in a D’Appolito arrangement: a one-inch tweeter is flanked vertically by two three-inch mid-range drivers and two three-inch woofers. The tweeter and mid-range units are each driven by a separate amplifier, while a fourth amp module handles the two woofers, delivering a combined power output of 135W RMS (270W max) per speaker.
A precisely designed acoustic waveguide ensures optimal sonic dispersion: wide to the sides for a big sweet spot, so the speakers sound great wherever the listener is located; and narrow on the vertical plane, to minimise reflections from the floor and ceiling.
The speakers can be used as a simple stereo pair or with the matching klang 5 subwoofer in a 3.1 or 5.1 configuration, the latter delivering immersive home cinema surround sound. In both 3.1 and 5.1 set-ups, the soundbar incorporated into a Loewe TV such as the bild 7 acts as the centre speaker. This, coupled with the TV’s built-in Dolby Digital and DTS processing, enables the creation of an exceptionally neat home cinema system with minimal clutter.
The klang 5 speakers and subwoofer are simple to connect to a Loewe TV via the specially developed ‘klang link’ wireless transmitter box, which ensures lossless, high-speed digital audio transmission with latency of less than 5ms for seamless synchronicity between picture and sound.
The speakers are automatically detected and independently logged by any Loewe TV, ensuring fully optimised operation whatever the system configuration. Various performance parameters are adjustable via the connected TV’s on-screen menu, and the TV and speakers power up together at the touch of a button on the TV’s remote, adding further operational convenience. Additional controls on the speakers themselves enable their output to be tailored to suit their position in the room: freestanding, against a wall, or in a corner.
Inside the klang 5 subwoofer are three eight-inch drive units. Two of these are passive while the third is powered by a 300W RMS (600W max) amp section, generating deep, taut and punchy bass right down to 28Hz. State-of-the-art digital signal processing is used to optimise performance in conjunction with the rest of the system and, as with the klang 5 speakers, the sub’s output can be tailored to suit its position in the room.
Loewe will be exhibiting the klang 5 speakers and sub at Sound & Vision – the Bristol Show (24th - 26th Feb), together with what is arguably the finest television in the world, the Loewe bild 7.65 OLED TV – make sure you don’t miss this exceptional AV set-up!
