Our take on the Klipsch R-15PM and Pro-Ject Turntable Package by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
This is a great system for a den or office.
All-in-one phono system
Ready to really enjoy your growing vinyl collection? Check out this Klipsch speaker and turntable package. It's extremely easy to set up and operate, while delivering richly detailed room-filling sound with 50 watts per channel. The Klipsch Reference R-15PM bookshelf speakers come with a built-in phono preamp, so you don't need any additional components. And setup is simple, with just two cable connections — one to connect the left and right speakers, and a second to connect the turntable to the speakers.
A turntable that performs
The included Pro-Ject Primary turntable has a minimalist look, but there's nothing minimal about its performance. The turntable's reliable belt drive system uses a silicone belt to isolate motor vibration. The external motor further removes unwanted rumble from the system. The turntable features a rigid one-piece aluminum tonearm for resonance reduction. The factory-installed Ortofon OM-5E moving-magnet cartridge provides superior tracking for better sound reproduction.
Solid Klipsch sound quality
Each R-15PM speaker features a resonance-deadening MDF cabinet to minimize sound degradation. Inside, a 1" aluminum diaphragm compression driver is mated with Klipsch's famous Tractrix® horn to deliver clean, clear highs. And the 5-1/4" spun copper woofer gives you solid, natural midrange and bass, with a rear-firing port to further reinforce the low frequencies.
A choice of sources
You'll hear fine detail not only in your LPs but in all your audio sources. The R-15PM's speakers have built-in Bluetooth, so you can stream wirelessly from your phone or tablet. They also have digital inputs for your TV, DVD player, or other high-end components. And there's USB input for a direct connection from your computer or laptop.

Two-Way Driver Design: The Klipsch R-15PM powered bookshelf speakers deliver room-filling sound from a two-way driver design. Each speaker includes a 1" aluminum diaphragm compression driver mated to 90° x 90° square Tractrix Horn and 5.25" copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer. The tweeter and woofer are crossed over at 1800Hz.
- Tractrix Horn-Loaded Tweeter: Each speaker has a Tractrix horn-loaded 1" aluminum dome tweeter for a natural, lifelike sound. The square Tractrix horn delivers a 90° x 90° dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage.
- Copper Spun IMG Woofer: Each loudspeaker uses a copper spun IMG (Injection Molded Graphite) 5.25" woofer for accurate midrange and midbass performance.
Built-in Amplification: The Klipsch R-15PM's "Right Speaker" employs a built-in, ultra-low noise 50 watt x 2 channel amplifier to power both speakers in the system. The built-in amplifier has been custom deigned to maximize driver performance and eliminate the need for external amplification. The "Right Speaker" and "Left Speaker" are fitted with binding-post speaker terminals on the back of the cabinet and come with 16' of speaker wire (18AGW) to connect the speakers together.
Bass Reflex MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch R-15PM employs a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The ported enclosure features a MDF cabinet finished with a brushed black polymer veneer. The rigid MDF cabinet utilizes internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound. No grilles come with these speakers.
Bluetooth Music Streaming: The Klipsch R-15PM active loudspeakers feature built-in Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP technology which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows PC/Phone, or Mac computer/laptop. You'll be able to stream stored music or music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device and control basic playback from the included remote control. Advanced playback control and song/artist information will still be done from your Bluetooth device. Once paired, the R-15PM will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Klipsch R-15PM.
USB-B Input: The "Right Speaker" of the Klipsch R-15PM features a rear-panel USB (type-B) input for connecting your Windows PC or Mac computer/laptop. Through the R-15PM's USB connection, you are able to play music files (up to 24-bit/96kHz) stored on your Windows PC or Mac computer/laptop through the powered speaker system.
Optical Digital Input: The Klipsch R-15PM is fitted with an optical (toslink) digital input on the back of the "Right Speaker" for connection to a digital audio device like your TV, Blu-ray, or CD player. The speaker's optical digital input will accept 2ch stereo PCM only (up to 24-bit/96kHz).
Dual Analog Inputs w/ Phono Switch: The Klipsch R-15PM is equipped with two analog audio inputs on back of the "Right Speaker"; there is one stereo minijack (3.5mm) input for connecting a portable audio device with a headphone jack and one stereo RCA input for connecting an analog audio component. The stereo RCA input has a Phono switch which allows you to connect the Pro-Ject turntable, so you can enjoy your vinyl record collection.
Sub Out: The Klipsch R-15PM features a mono-sub RCA output on the back of the "Right Speaker" that allows you to connect a powered subwoofer for added bass response. Your powered sub should have its own low-pass crossover.
IR Remote: The Klipsch R-15PM includes an IR wireless remote control for wireless operation of the powered speaker, plus control of your Bluetooth paired devices. The remote offers easy access to system features such as dedicated source selection, volume up/down, play/pause, and previous/next track. Make sure to point the IR remote at the IR sensor on the "Right Speaker".
AC Power: The Klipsch R-15PM's "Right Speaker" which is equipped with the built-in amplifier must be plugged into an AC power outlet using the included 68" detachable AC power cord.
Belt Driven (2-Speeds): The included Pro-Ject Primary turntable features a quiet-running synchronous motor with a silicone belt to drive the low-resonance platter. The turntable supports 33-1/3 and 45 rpm speeds.
Particle Board Plinth& Platter: The main chassis of the turntable is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board. The turntable's platter is made of the same lightweight, but stiff particle board. A felt mat is also included for the platter.
8.6" One-Piece Aluminum Tonearm: The Pro-Ject Primary turntable utilizes a straight 8.6" tonearm made from a single piece of aluminum.
Pre-Mounted Orotfon OM-5E Cartridge (MM): The pre-mounted OM 5E is a magnetic cartridge (MM) with an elliptical shaped stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback. The OM 5E MM cartridge provides a frequency range of 20 to 25,000Hz.
Decoupling Feet: Special feet effectively decouples the turntable from the surface. The turntable should be positioned on a low-resonance surface such as wood or multiple layer ply-board to avoid structural vibrations disturbing replay.
Fixed RCA Cable: The turntable features a fixed 42" stereo RCA cable and ground wire. The turntable's internal wiring consists of high-grade flexible copper from the headshell right through to the fixed connection cable.
Dust Cover: The Pro-Ject turntable comes supplied with an acrylic dust cover to prevent dust build-up on the turntable.
