Product Description

The new Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air represents one of the most comprehensive team development efforts in our history, with design and acoustics engineers working together to create a new music system with a stunning appearance that compliments any setting and still fully delivers the legendary, lifelike sound Klipsch is known for. Never settling for the "good enough" approach that abounds in many compact audio systems today, the G-17 Air is a true advancement in style, technology and sound you’ll never tire of.

G-17 Air

Klipsch Gallery™ G-17 Air Airplay™ Speakers

Introducing the Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air wireless speaker system with a sophisticated design matched only by its acoustical prowess. Unfettered by speaker wire, this innovative work of art takes the unmistakable, horn-loaded sound to new places. And it beautifully complements any environment.

G-17 Air

The elegant, injection-molded polymer cabinet features a front baffle that curves on both sides to please the eye and deliver a solid, low-resonance structure. And the twelve-step finishing process provides a high-gloss luster that emulates a fine musical instrument.

That sleek appearance carries through to the acoustically invisible grille. At half the thickness of a credit card, the decision on whether to remove the frameless, magnetic grille comes down to pure aesthetics. Aesthetics that are gorgeously reflected in the high-end, dark tempered glass base. Or mount it on the wall via dual keyhole mounts.

G-17 Air

But don’t take it for a wallflower.

The G-17 Air is a social butterfly. Not only does it perform anywhere. But it also performs with just about any device.

Simply connect over an existing wireless network for uncompromised Apple Lossless sound through your iPod®, iPhone® or iPad® via AirPlay. The G-17 Air has an array of set-up tools, including a free IOS app and web app, for hassle-free user experience.

G-17 Air

Music, movies, games. No wires.

A USB, 3.5mm analog and most 30-pin Apple devices can also plug in and play on.

The remote controls volume, mute and power on the speaker. It also dictates track selection on any Apple®-connected devices.

The G-17 Air has yet to meet a stranger.

It’s also at home anywhere. And everywhere.

G-17 Air

Not only does it connect with multiple devices, but a collection of these wireless wonders readily forms a whole-house system. Simply stream your iTunes® music from a Mac or PC and let the legendary Klipsch sound follow you wherever you go.

Complete with stereo Tractrix® Horns, each G-17 Air delivers lifelike, dynamic sound from its sleek, compact cabinet. The three quarter-inch, solid-formed, lightweight, aluminum diaphragms work in conjunction with precise phasing plugs at the horn throats to create highly efficient drivers with excellent transient response and lack of distortion.

G-17 Air

Add that to the long-throw injection-molded graphite woofers and bi-amplified power, and you have a giant evolutionary leap in Klipsch history.

Increase your living space dramatically with the Klipsch G-17 Air and set your playlist free.

Easy setup, great sound, and looks great.
They said they've heard about the firmware update issue before, and when people send in the speaker they are able to update without a problem.
Nadir Mirza
It connected easily to our wireless network, and playing through the Mac, Ipad, and Iphone have been trouble free.

Disclaimer!! Audio "quality" is ultimately a subjective notion that depends greatly on personal taste, room characteristics and recording quality, among other things. While this review represents my own experience with the G17, prospective buyers would be wise to test this system in person, with their own music, before drawing any definite conclusions.

I purchased this unit as soon as it became available. I'd been looking for a complete, compact audio solution for my NYC apartment and, being a satisfied owner of other Klipsch audio products, I decided to try it out. The room I wanted to use it in is small, maybe 10' x 12', so I though the G17 may be the right size for what I needed. Basically, I had three criteria: sound quality, physical size, and input/connectivity options. While the size of the unit is certainly compact, it was the sound and lack of input options that ultimately led me to return the product for something different altogether.

First off, the presentation of the G17 was good. The included cotton gloves were a nice touch that prevented me from smearing finger prints all over the very glossy unit. It's very nice looking and the magnetic grille cover is clever and works well. The build quality is excellent. The unit fairly hefty and very stable...no vibrations, etc. The size of the G17 is perfect for small spaces and being able to wall-mount is an option I would have taken advantage of had I kept it. It was very, very easy to set up and I was streaming music from various Mac's and my iPhone (4, not 4S) in 15 minutes or so.

Here is where I was torn on the G17. The sound is good overall...very crisp and clear sounding with ample amounts of bass (mid-bass, anyways.) Instrumental recordings were dynamic and lively and vocals sounded crisp.

I have the Klipsch 2.1 stereo system and wanted to go to the next level for a bedroom musical sound system. I listened and shopped for the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin but found it to be unattractive and more expensive. Than Klipsch came out with the G-17 Airplay Sound System and I was quickly interested since some reviews claimed it was good as the Zep or very close to it for less money and in a very attractive package.

Hit with "buy fever", I ordered it, without ever listening to it, and after a quick setup, I was soon disenchanted and ready to return it for lack of volume, mid-range, and what I felt was muddy sound. However, I remembered that when I got the Audio-Techica M50s Monitor headphones, they sounded similar but after breaking them in, the sound improved amazingly, so I decided to give the Klipsch G-17 a chance.

After running the G-17 for several hours, and hooking them up to my headphone amp (Behringer HA400, $22 at Amazon), which was required for the sound levels that I wanted, it slowly became evident that these had qualities similar to the headphones, and eventually the sound simply "wowed" me with decent bass, clear, crisp, accurate sound, and undistorted room filling volume. I had not noticed any burn in time mentioned in any of the previous reviews, but for me, it certainly worked. Also, there does not appear to me to be any strain or distortion when using the headphone amp to attain my preferred sound levels.

Stereo separation is limited, but the sound is excellent for my kind of music which includes all types except hard rock. If you want booming bass and wall shaking volume, look elsewhere.

This was our first airplay speaker, so we did quite a bit of research and ended up spending the $$$ for the Klipsch G17 for what we perceived to be exceptional quality. We live in a remote area and did not have the luxury of listening to any speakers prior to ordering, so we had to base our purchase on reviews like these. The reviews seemed mixed, even for something as expensive as a $500 speaker, and I can tell you that our experience after 6 months has been mixed as well.

I'm not an expert at tones, but the sound is very good. We have an open kitchen, approx 24x24 and it fills the room nicely, but doesn't do much more than that. Our biggest problem, like many of the reviews, is that airplay drops out out constantly and for no apparent reason. We read the older reviews and hoped with our Mac and Apple network being new, that we wouldn't have the same problem, but we do. It seems to happen more often when we run it thru our apple tv. Two hours is about the longest it will work; then some songs start to "skip"; eventually it stops and apple tv no longer lists it as a network speaker. Sometimes it takes days to reappear on the network, and we've located it right next to the router. Ironically, we don't seem to have dropouts when we play things from an iphone or ipad directly (maybe it's a different connection)? In any event, "Support" was helpful and they offered to replace it, but they admitted there's been no product changes or firmware updates since 2011. We recently walked thru a "Best Buy store" and found many lesser expensive models with pretty impressive sound for the money. They're not as attractive as the Klipsch, but we felt the sound was equal, and we could afford multiple speakers for the same $$$.

I guess our advice would be that it's a good product, but the value received was not what we expected for the price, and we'd do something different next time. Good luck.
