Great sound, classy appearance, but tricky pairing

Michael from Charlottesville, VA on 7/10/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The device looks very classy and is the perfect size for a kitchen sideboard. The sound is excellent - clear, clean, and neither skimpy nor overwhelming on the bass side.

Pros: Looks great, sounds great

Cons: Was finicky pairing with my phone, but it might have been my phone's fault

Crutchfield customer from Pasadena, CA on 1/9/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well balanced sound with good bass and clear, detailed highs and mid tones. The sound is reminiscent of larger Klipsch speakers but on a smaller scale. The Capitol Records 75th Anniversary looks beautiful, as well, like an early '60s hi fi.

Features

Klipsch Heritage Design: Incorporating luxury materials such as real wood veneer and tactile nickel switches and knobs, the Klipsch One blends the acoustics and classic design legacy of Paul W. Klipsch with the latest technologies available today.

Professionally Tuned Stereo Sound: The Klipsch One is a 2.1ch stereo system that is biamplified (30W RMS/50W Peak) for audiophile resolution and features two 2.25" full-range drivers and a 4.5" woofer. Its been professionally tuned by Klipsch engineers to deliver a crystal clear acoustic performance with great bass. You'll be surprised at the sound quality that comes from such a small package.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The One tabletop stereo system features Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology so you can enjoy streaming online music services, internet radio, or music content stored on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. Pairing your Bluetooth source device with The One is extremely easy; just press and hold the source button on the speaker and select "Klipsch The One" on your Bluetooth device. Playback control and song/artist info is still handled from your Bluetooth source device.

Aux Input: In addition to wireless Bluetooth connectivity, the One also features a 3.5mm analog input, so you can connect practically any audio source via either a 3.5mm-to-3.5mm audio cable or an RCA-to-3.5mm audio cable (sold separately). Connect your CD player, computer, Blu-Ray player, or any audio source with an analog audio output or headphone jack.

8-Hour Rechargeable Battery:  The Klipsch One features an 8-hour rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. An AC power adapter is included to charge the built-in battery and supply power to the wireless speaker system.

Flexible Placement Options: The One wireless speaker system is small enough that it can be placed almost anywhere - on a table-top, counter-top, shelf, end-table, nightstand, dresser, or small credenza.

Most defiantly, it actually pulls if off very nicely considering its compact size. [ Ronald  Apr 09, 2018 ]

Streaming audio wirelessly via Bluetooth is the primary way to play music through the speaker but it also features a standard 3.5mm auxiliary audio input for physically connecting an external audio source. I hope that helps My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan  Apr 06, 2018 ]  Staff
