Air on the side of caution

Are you buying a speaker? Or a machine capable of flight? MAKE SURE YOU KNOW!

It's a good thing you're shopping on the internet where you get to READ product names. Why? Because if you were talking to a salesman in person and that salesman had a speech impediment that made it so that he couldn't pronounce n-sounds at the end of words, you might THINK he was saying AirPlay, when in reality he was saying airplane. And you might not realize the miscommunication until you'd closed the deal!

In fact, even though it's not applicable here on Sellout.Woot, we'd still like to provide you with this quick guide for how to tell whether a salesman is saying AirPlay or airplane:

  1. Ask to see the product. If it looks like an airplane, he's saying "airplane." If it looks like a wireless speaker system, he's saying "Airplay." If he won't show you the product, then...
  2. Ask about the features. If he starts talking about propellers or jet engines, than he's selling you an airplane. If he starts talking about Bi-Amplified Power and Stereo Tractrix Horns Matted to Titanium Compression Drivers, than he's selling you an AirPlay. If he won't tell you the features...
  3. Ask how much it costs. If it's a few hundred dollars or less, you're dealing with an AirPlay. If it's many many thousands or millions of dollars, you're dealing with an airplane. If he won't tell you the price...
  4. Ask him if he's even a salesman. If he says yes, that means he is a salesman. If he says no, then...
  5. Apologize for taking his time, and quietly leave the hotel lobby.

We hope this helps you avoid this all-to-common issue!

Features

An Intricate Attention to Detail in Sight and Sound
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.

A Wireless Sound System Using Apple AirPlay® Technology
Using your home’s wireless Wi-Fi network, you can now easily stream your
music in high quality Apple Lossless sound directly from any iPod®, iPhone®
or iPad® capable of running iOS 4.2 to the G-17 Air without wires or having to
dock your device. You can also stream your iTunes® music from your Mac or
PC to one, or even multiple, G-17 Air units in your home, taking advantage of
a simple and efficient new method of creating a whole house audio system.
Other options include a USB input for direct digital connection and
charging of most 30-pin Apple devices, and a 3.5 mm analog input
that can accept almost every music player available.

Unparalled Design that Blends with any Décor
The elegant, injection molded polymer cabinet has a front baffle that curves
on both sides to create both an attractive design and a solid, low-resonance
structure. The unique, twelve-step cabinet finishing process achieves a sleek,
high-quality, piano black high gloss luster that emulates a fine musical
instrument.

Bi-Amplified Power
The G-17 Air is powered by separate, high-quality, digital amplifiers for each
driver: 10 watts x 2 for high frequencies and 20 watts x 2 for low frequencies.

Stereo Tractrix® Horns Matted to Titanium Compression Drivers (tweeters)
Legendary Klipsch dynamic sound from our proprietary Tractrix® Horn
technology reproduces amazing, lifelike sound from a compact cabinet. The
three-quarter inch, solid-formed, very 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.

Long-Throw Injection Molded Graphite Woofers
Dual woofers with light, yet very stiff diaphragms matched with large motor
structures, designed for maximum controlled excursion combine with a
precisely tuned, flared port to reproduce tight and balanced bass.

Unique Frameless, Accoustically Invisible Grille
With the thinnest grille ever to come from Klipsch (one-half the thickness of a
credit card), the sound is equally detailed, and the look equally elegant, with
the grille on or off. With it off the high gloss appearance and fine lines of the
speaker are preserved due to the lack of visible fasteners on the speaker baffle
made capable by a unique magnetic grille rod attachment.

High Quality Dark Tint, Tempered Glass Base
Perfectly complements the high gloss cabinet finish when used to place the
G-17 Air on a desk, nightstand, table or countertop. Without the base, the G-17
Air can be easily wall mounted via dual keyhole mounts.

Remote Control
Controls the G-17 Air’s Volume, Mute and Power functions (which are duplicated on the
side of the G-17 Air) along with track selection of Apple® connected devices (USB or
Airplay)
