KLH Model 5 Loudspeakers in West African Mahogany 

The Model Five acoustic suspension speaker is known as one of the finest and most sought-after speakers for audiophiles, both new and seasoned.

KLH's updated version of this classic speaker has real wood veneers, cast aluminium baskets, and uses acoustic suspension design principles made famous by founder Henry Kloss.

Three Amazing Finishes

The KLH Model Five vintage speaker is offered in three gorgeous finishes (English Walnut, West African Mahogany, and Nordic Noir), allowing the loudspeaker to blend with all home decor.

The English Walnut Model Five comes with a beautiful Stone Wash Linen grille cloth that magnifies the rich finish of the real wood veneers.

Meanwhile, the West African Mahogany finish is complemented by an Old-World Linen grille cloth that will stop you in your tracks.

And lastly, the Nordic Noir finish is shipped wearing the lovely Medici Grey Linen grille cloth.

The Reviews speak for themselves...

“This speaker gave me a presentation that I had not heard through anything else… have you ever had a dessert at a really good restaurant and you just kind of have to sit down and not think about anything else for a second- just take in the wonderment? That’s what it was like.”Randy at cheapaudioman 

 “…these speakers move my heart… At one point I realized my heart was affected by the music. Now, this does not happen to me often, but it did…” Thomas & Stereo 

 “The KLH M5s are intoxication kings, urging me to hear my most beloved vinyl via its big personality and well-scaled dimensionality.”

“Mostly, the speaker played with a detailed, sparkling upper/mid/treble chutzpah that favoured and seemed to amplify texture and viscosity. Notes had realistic weight and body. These Model Fives are attention-getters of the first order, delivering a big soundstage and big, juicy dynamics.” Ken Micallef – Stereophile

 “…I have nothing but praise for the clarity of the midrange, the robustness of the middle and upper bass, and the voicing across the entire frequency range.”

“This is a case where old school and cutting edge have combined to create something that’s truly special—and at a very reasonable price.” Doug Schneider – SoundStage! Network  

 “…KLH just set a master class on how to get it done right. “I think this is a solution that many people have been waiting for- a speaker that has an old school aesthetic, a speaker that has the kind of sound that’s like a fusion between that big, fun, old school presentation with some of the more modern technical achievements that audiophiles expect from present day speakers.”

“It’s a speaker that gives you just enough of those audiophile benefits while at the same time offering up a consistent and fun listening experience, which allows you to go back to the ritual of just enjoying music for the sake of enjoying music.”
 
“This is one of the few products where I got excited for both the consumer as well as myself, because I actually struggled to review this product… I was so much more focused on just going through my music collection and freaking enjoying it.”
  Sean Fowler, Zero Fidelity (YouTube)  

 “The Model Five is, for me, a near-perfect hybrid between the clarity and immediacy one gets from high-efficiency loudspeakers combined with the raw grip and control really only found in high-end powered monitors…. I thought about starting or ending this review with a clapping.” Andrew Robinson “Best Loudspeakers Under US$2,000,” TheRobinsonBrand.com

“Finally, and most importantly- these speakers move my heart… At one point I realised my heart was affected by the music. I had to put down my keyboard and continue enjoying the music. Now, this does not happen to me often, but it did…”

“The soundstage is big. Mr. Clark has the Quad 2905 electrostatic speakers. The soundstage from those speakers is ginormous, yet Mr. Clark was still so impressed with the Model Five soundstage that he called these Model Fives the Quad on steroids.”

“The bass is fantastic. It reminds me of some vintage speakers that I’ve listened to over the years. I like how tight the bass is with the Model Five without it being overly tight. The bass is full. It feels like it goes deep and has just the right amount of punch.” Thomas & Stereo
