I came from far away during business hours, and the store was closed! Although they have working hours and a weekday. There are no warnings or announcements. Wasted time and gas. I don’t recommend it, as you might just waste your time.

I can’t recommend this company enough. The customer service and assistance they provide is second to none. Truly above and beyond. I can give no greater example than what they did for me and my family today. We live in the DFW area and we were in Houston for a Marine Corps reunion. I’ve always wanted to see the show room and needed to demo some speakers for my home theater. They called in a technician ON A SUNDAY when they were actually closed just to accommodate me and my family. I was blown away with the level of customer service Ryan and Chris provided. The knowledge and hospitality was next level. If this doesn’t tell you what they are as a company I don’t know what will. They have earned a customer for life. I didn’t even mention the amount of options and level of equipment they have to offer and on display. Nothing like it. If you need anything home electronics give them your business. They deserve it.

This place is absolutely amazing! Ryan who works there is really knowledgeable on recievers and went out of his way to help me solve some problems with my older denon that I couldn't get to connect to my new TV. Ryan took the time to explain the process of what was needed to be done and even checked on me when I got home to see if I was able to get it working. Really kind person and you don't get that often nowadays. Their speaker selection is top of the line and out of this world. Highly recommended!!! 🥰

Had the luxury to visit the store this weekend, we were welcomed by Jeff. Really nice and knowledgeable person in the field of Audio. The amazing setup with high end Mcintosh Amps, Preamp and their speakers changed our perspective on sound even though I am use to Parasound, Marantz, Emotiva, Klipsch & Martin logan products.Now time to start finalizing and narrow down my wish list to build a nice System for myself.Will definitely give them the business for all my future purchases.It’s a blessing to have a store like this in your local community - Treat yourself, go and check them out even if you’re not an audiophile - cos I can guarantee you will get into this hobby for sure.

Loved this place! Jeff spent so much time with me helping me pick the right speakers for my setup. He was very patient with all my questions and he was extremely knowledgeable in all the equipment. While this is an appointment only high end audio store, they didn't act elitist when it came to my setup, and they were very down to earth. This is my new go to place for high end audio.

Hand down the best HiFi audio shop in the entire state! These guys have really spent the time and energy to do it right. If you are in the market for a high end system, or just want to listen to some of the best equipment the industry has to offer, then do yourself a favor and make an appointment.

Houston Audio is wife approved. 😄 The speakers are everything your man has been begging you for, yet they are so sleek and aesthetically pleasing, you will barely see them (but definitely hear them!) The speakers can enhance any room in your house. After spending time around the speakers I have grown to an understanding of how the speakers work and how they can truly change the way your favorite song or movie sounds-in the best way. Jeff & Eddie have staged beautiful demo rooms at H.A. that provide a unique experience in each room. It truly adds to the entire listening experience! I definitely recommend stopping by and listening in each room.

Limited to 75 Pairs Worldwide: Klipsch Klipschorn AK6 75th Anniversary Tower Loudspeakers Epitomize Efficiency, Dynamics, and Clarity
No loudspeaker in audio history claims a richer heritage than the Klipsch Klipschorn tower loudspeaker. And few, if any, has proven as influential. Honoring the speaker’s 75th anniversary and limited to 75 pairs worldwide, the fully horn-loaded Klipschorn AK6 75th Anniversary tower loudspeakers stand as a testament to pioneering engineering, extraordinary vision, and flawless execution.

Handcrafted in the U.S.A. with a unique real wood teak matched veneer and lambswool grilles exclusive to the 75th Anniversary edition, this pair of Klipschorns remains true to their original goal of reproducing the power, scope, detail, and emotion of live performances in listeners’ homes. That the fundamentals of the speaker are still the same as they were at its inception further attest to the brilliance of this truly iconic, watershed invention. Named one of “The 12 Most Significant Loudspeakers of All Time” by The Absolute Sound, Klipschorn boasts incredibly high sensitivity, smooth frequency response, ultra-low distortion, controlled directivity, and profound dynamic range. It is an indisputable legend – a classic that never goes out of style. And with version AK6, it has never sounded more breathtaking.

Capable of extreme output levels and immensely clean playback, Klipschorn AK6 features a new fully enclosed low-frequency horn that eliminates the prior need for each speaker to be placed tightly against the corner of a room. As long as it is the proximity of a corner, you’ll realize the dramatic ability of the horn. A newly designed enclosed back further provides positioning flexibility to angle each Klipschorn AK6 to attain optimal stereo imaging. And yes, the speaker’s physics still utilize the walls and floor as low-frequency extensions of its patented folded-horn 15-inch woofer – one of the most revolutionary inventions in high-end history.

Enhanced with a passive network equipped with AudioQuest Type 4 Star-Quad Geometry wiring, Klipschorn AK6’s three-way system also involves a one-and-a-half-inch midrange mated to a high-efficiency exponential horn as well as the most efficient (109dB) tweeter you can buy: A one-inch neodymium tweeter with a lightweight polyimide diaphragm and copper-clad voice coil coupled to a 90 x 40-degree Tractix horn. The latter’s phase plug design extends the high-frequency performance to an astounding 20kHz. Each Klipschorn AK6 driver is further optimized to operate in its individual pass-band arrangement that permits this bespoke speaker to be a staggering 10 to 20 times more efficient than other conventional loudspeakers. Higher efficiency means greater acoustic power generated with considerably less effort from the loudspeaker’s diaphragm. Let’s just say you’ll likely never doubt what a tube amplifier can do ever again.

Weighing 220 pounds a piece, and measuring 53 inches tall, 28.25 inches deep, and 31.25 inches wide, Klipschorn AK6 amounts to far more than a loudspeaker: It is a piece of your decor and a conversation-starting artwork. It literally shouts how much you value high-quality music playback and, as time has shown, will likely outlast any trend that comes along during the next seven decades. Built to last in Hope, Arkansas, each speaker also comes bearing a sterling-silver 75th logo with a natural 2-mm diamond accentuatation as well as hand-applied enamel and rhodium plating that ensures tarnish-free aesthetics. A riser base with a cable-management system that cleanly hides speaker cables, bi-amp inputs and five-way binding posts crown a speaker that is like none other.

If you have the proper room – meaning, you have two open corners – and the space, we highly urge you to experience unprecedented audio history in your own home. Klipsch’s 10-year warranty, our Satisfaction Guarantee, and the testimony of seven decades of listeners give you as much security in your decision as you’ll ever need.

“The bass horn design has never been improved – it was perfect from day one.”
—The Absolute Sound, The 12 Most Significant Loudspeakers of All Time

“Nowadays speakers with horn-loaded woofers are extremely rare, but – trust me on this – nothing pressurizes a room like a pair of K-Horns with 15-inch bass drivers.”
—Steve Guttenberg, Sound & Vision

“No one with a taste for realistic playback, and especially no one with a taste for low-power amps and high-sensitivity speakers, should miss a chance to hear these.”
—Art Dudley, Stereophile

Three-Way, Fully Horn-Loaded Design
Klipschorn is the one of two fully horn-loaded loudspeakers available to consumers. With its three-way system, each driver is coupled to a horn and optimized to operate in its individual pass-band. This allows the Klipschorn to be a staggering 10 to 20 times more efficient than other conventional loudspeakers. Higher efficiency yields greater acoustic power, which is generated with considerably less effort. The result is the cleanest, most dynamic sound possible throughout the entire musical range.

Brand-New Neodymium Tweeter
Klipschorn features a neodymium tweeter with a 1″ polyimide diaphragm and copper clad aluminum voice coil. This lightweight diaphragm assembly and high-strength magnet structure creates the tweeter’s extremely high 109dB sensitivity and makes it the most efficient consumer tweeter on the market. When coupled to a 90° x 40° Tractrix horn, the tweeter sets new levels of performance for dynamic range and output. The phase plug design extends high frequency performance to 20kHz, meaning you hear the most subtle high frequency details better than ever.

Low-Frequency Horn Design Now Fully Enclosed
Klipschorn’s low-frequency horn has been redesigned and is now fully enclosed. This eliminates the need for the loudspeakers to be positioned tightly in the corner of a listening room. The speaker only needs to be in the proximity of the corner to realize the horn’s full performance. Additionally, the enclosed back provides positioning flexibility to angle the speaker to achieve the best stereo imaging.

A Midrange for Where You Live
According to company founder Paul W. Klipsch, “the midrange is where we live” and is one of the most critical parts in any loudspeaker design. Klipschorn’s midrange utilizes a 1.5-inch compression drivers mated to a high efficiency exponential horn that maximizes the system’s power and performance. As a result, less distortion is produced by the amplifier and by the loudspeaker. That means clarity, accuracy, and remarkable tonal definition.

Premium Wire Management
Klipschorn features a riser base that not only enhances the look of the speaker, but also improves the wire management so that speaker cables are cleanly hidden.

Bi-Amp Input and AudioQuest Type 4 Wiring
Klipschorn’s premium, aluminum input panel accommodates large, high-quality speaker cables. Strong, versatile, and quality binding posts provide the capability for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The quality continues with AudioQuest Type 4 with Star-Quad Geometry internal wiring featuring carbon-loaded insulation, nitrogen-injected PE, and solid long-grain copper conductors.
