I am the first to admit that I don’t get audiophiles. The sort of guy willing to drop thousands on a CD player when you can get one that works perfectly for $50 is just beyond my understanding.
Klipsch on the other hand knows the audiophile market and knows how to pry the hard earned cash from wealthy audiophiles. Their latest addition to their high-end speaker line up is sure to have audiophile with large bank accounts lining up to buy.
The new Klipsch Palladium Floorstander speakers carry a price tag of $15,000 per pair. Klipsch used specially engineered drivers for the P-39F Palladium speakers that use a 3.5-way Tapered Array design along with a horn-loaded tweeter assembly and three high-output woofers. Really though, are these things worth $15,000? Maybe if they came with installation by topless Victoria Secret models that also cleaned my house and cooked me a steak they would be worth it. Nah, they still wouldn’t be worth 15k even then.
