An iconic speaker, reborn

Henry Kloss and KLH introduced their original Model Five back in 1968, and it became a popular and broadly recognizable speaker that helped propel the company's success. This new version takes advantage of modern driver technology, but houses it in a retro-styled, acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet that's similar to that of the original. And here's a rare touch for 2021, also from the original 1968 version — a passive sound-shaping switch that lets you tailor the speaker's output to your room's acoustics.

Great speakers

One fine speaker. The KLH Model 5 is just that a fine speaker at this price point. Hearing details I had not heard before from cds, streaming and Sirius as my musical sources. I have owned many a speakers in my 64 years these are one of the best. Thank you to Justin, Spencer and the entire team at J&A for helping me in making this decision. Job well done gentlemen

Love them

I have owned various speakers over the years, (Boston Acoustics, Magnat, Paradigm, Polk LSIm, Totem, and currently own the Kef LS50). I love the KLH 5 the best. They are not huge, just an oversized bookshelf. I drive them with Deion PMA1600 integrated amplifier. They are a very versatile speaker. You can play rock and classical.

take care and enjoy,

Happy Fan
