HD Wireless Control Center: The Klipsch HD Control Center (RP-HUB1) is
a high resolution wireless distribution hub that replaces complicated AV
receivers and transmits audio wirelessly to
Klipsch's Reference Premiere HD
Wireless Speakers (sold separately). The HD Control Center creates its own
dedicated WiSa (Wireless Speaker & Audio) network independent of your home WiFi
to eliminate dropouts and interference caused by bandwidth constraints within
your home. The RP-HUB1 can wirelessly transmit up to 8-channels of audio for a
wireless 7.1ch home theater system.
Note: The HD Control Center (RP-HUB1) is specifically designed to
wirelessly pair with Klipsch's Reference Premier HD Wireless Speakers and is not
designed to work with any other brand of speaker.
Reference Premiere HD Wireless System: The complete Klipsch
Reference Premiere HD Wireless System consists of the
RP-HUB1 HD Control Center,
RP-440WF floorstanding speaker,
RP-140WM bookshelf speaker,
RP-440WC center-channel speaker, and
RP-110WSW powered subwoofer (all sold separately). The floorstanding,
bookshelf, and center-channel wireless speakers feature a two-way design and
utilizes the same driver and horn technology as Klipsch's Reference Premiere
series. The wireless powered subwoofer is modeled directly after the Klipsch
Reference Premiere RP-110SW subwoofer. The Klipsch HD Control Center acts as the
system's hub and directs audio wireless to each speaker. All of the Klipsch
