At CES this year, audio technology brand Klipsch introduced its newest take on vintage smart speakers. With an exterior that recalls what one might find in their grandparents' homes, the speaker has mechanics that resemble something with a much more up-to-date design—wireless speakers entitled 'The Three' and 'The One,' which use Google Assistant technology with a built-in microphone function. To date back to its vintage old-school look, the speakers are designed to have a wooden outer layer with dark woven grills.
The Three is a larger speaker that also has a subwoofer installed. The One, on the other hand, comes with a "semi-portable" speaker that features a rechargeable battery. Without wires, these vintage smart speakers run on Wi-Fi with Bluetooth, which opens opportunity for them to be integrated with Chromecast. With the Google Assistant feature, the speakers allow users to run Spotify for music demands and other home functions.
The Three will be available in Fall of 2018, whereas The One will be available later in Spring 2019.
