Klipsch Heresy III speakers Review

At less than 24 inches tall, the Klipsch Heresy III is the shortest floor-standing speaker I’ve ever tested. Don’t let its diminutive stature fool you. This speaker can outrun many a tower speaker — and outlast them. In an age of disposable tech, any speaker that sticks around for five years or more is noteworthy, but Klipsch’s Heresy has been in continuous production since 1957. And the Heresy III outshines most contemporary high-end speakers in a few key performance areas. Dynamic impact and bass “slam,” courtesy of the Heresy III’s 12-inch woofer, are extraordinary. Vocals have more “body” and fullness...

Neat, well made and sounds great for the money. For: Fabulously agile and well-extended bass for its size good finish small and well-equipped Against: Nothing As reigning best Buy within its price class, the B&W ASW610 is the target its rivals have to aim for, but as we’ve seen in several tests of late, it’ s a difficult target to hit.

How to get the best sound from your turntable

Vinyl is the format that just refuses to die. Back in the late 1990s its days seemed numbered, but since then, slowly but surely, sales have been building. And we’re glad. It’s a format we like, and it’s capable of a terrific sound, provided you take a bit of care – and this is where vinyl is different from other formats. Unlike the digital alternatives, a lack of care in installation can cripple the final sound. Now there are some great ‘plug and play’ turntables on the market, and for more complex decks, many dealers will help you set it...
