Klipsch R-28PF Review

Equipped with internal amplifiers that eliminate the need for an external A / V receiver, these monitors also feature Tractrix® technology, which translates into great frequency response and minimal distortion.

Magnetron, a company specializing in equipment and sound solutions, presents its new self  powered floor speakers: R-28PF.

The true high fidelity stereo sound is what promises this floor monitor system that integrates a 260-watt amplifier, which translates into a sound reproduction without the need for an external audio receiver. Any source, either via cable or Bluetooth® technology, is compatible with these speakers, which deliver refined, high-power audio.

Customized Amplification

Klipsch R-28PF offers a wide spectrum sound thanks to the incorporation of an amplifier that adjusts in a personalized way to offer high performance, low distortion and a wide frequency response.

As a differential feature, the individual amplifiers provide a low noise level and are custom designed to optimize the performance of the system. In this sense, the engineers of Klipsch study and control completely the route that the signal follows until it goes out. In the same way, they select and adjust each component to achieve an incredibly immersive and complete sound.

Exclusive Technologies

These speakers also have an integrated phono preamplifier and have been designed using speakers with Tractix® technology, with 90 × 90º circular waveguide integrated with a square space, which improves the response in high frequency, as well as the dynamics and the sound image.

In addition, the Tractrix® technology allows air to transfer quickly and efficiently from the box and thus achieves the clearest and most powerful bass response in the market.

To all the above, two 8-inch IMG woofers that have been magnetically shielded are added, which affects the transmission of deep bass without distortion.

Absolute Versatility

The wide possibilities of connection are another plus added for this equipment, which is provided with Bluetooth® technology for wireless communication with compatible systems, such as smartphones and tablets, among others.

It also has a digital optical input, analogue inputs by RCA and also USB connectivity, which means that virtually any source available at home can play their audio content through these columns.

If the user wants to give more power to the reproduction of bass tones, you can also take advantage of the sub output to connect a compatible subwoofer.

Would be nice if the speaker “remembered” the input source when powered up. Overall great and innovative speakers. Plug your PC in via USB and play music from your collection or streaming.

  1. With these speakers great sound comes an automatically generated shutoff signal that at random times turns off the speaker. Supplementing that wonderful sound of silence is the inability of the system to restart itself, even after having been commanded by remote or Alexa device. The joy of reconnecting guarantees one an explicative laced tirade that might make sailors embarassed to call on you for drinks at the local pub. Notwithstanding all of these tantalizing elements of purchase motivators, these speakers are quite the benefit in holding down the corners of a very large carpet. Buy them for the ultimate in dissatisfaction.
