“I find the clarity of this loudspeaker so incredibly addictive… Nuance and control is the name of the game here. The Model Five’s coherence top to bottom is fantastic. The soundstage is fantastic, this speaker can image with the best of them- bordering on holographic at times. Soundstage width is epic, the detail out along the edges is so impressive. This is not a loudspeaker you have to pull out from the wall in order to enjoy good soundstage depth. The dispersion in center imaging of this speaker is so good in fact that even in stereo the Model Five proved to be one of the finer home theater solutions that we have ever had in this house and on this channel. I really don’t have anything negative to say about the KLH’s sound.”
Model Five Floorstanding Speakers
The KLH Model Five is the new shape of sound. This legendary, sought-after speaker is our best floorstanding speaker, entirely dedicated to acoustic performance. Our new, iconic version of this late 1960s original roots directly from the heart of KLH, honoring the acoustic suspension design principles made famous by KLH founder Henry Kloss. Our evolved Model Five gives music lovers the luxury of filling their living space with the sound and aesthetic they’ve been searching for. Standing strong on a 5-degree slant riser base, the speaker’s upward angular stance ensures the sound is always directed accurately toward the listener.
The Model Five’s “Old-World Linen” textured grille cloth complements the rich finish of the genuine mahogany veneer, giving this loudspeaker a mid-century modern look that stops you in your tracks. And our other grille option, the “Stone Wash Linen” grille, magnifies the rich finish of the English Walnut Model Five. We don’t blame you for wishing you could have both grille cloth colors to customize your Model Fives. That’s why we gave you the option to buy the color you’re without for $199.99/pair. Not only is this remarkable floorstanding loudspeaker made with sustainable materials and packaging, it never fails to leave a jaw-dropping impact with its high-fidelity sound. This speaker will wake up your listening space and articulate high-quality sound from anywhere in the room! Welcome to a new era of sound, audiophiles!
“When I first sat down to listen to the Model Five I started listening at around 8 pm and I couldn’t stop listening until 2 am. I couldn’t stop! I wanted to break away and do other things but I was just like one more album, one more album… I was having a ball.”
“On one hand it’s so refreshing to come across something that I feel is so musically engaging that it reconnects me to why I became an audiophile to begin with. And yet… when you find that as a reviewer it makes it very difficult to want to review anything else… I know that most of them [other speakers] probably are not going to connect me with the music the way that the Model Five has. That is why they are my favorite speakers in their price class. Given the competition, I think KLH has the most well-rounded option for someone who wants that kind of retro look but more of a well-rounded listening experience.”

“These speakers will play really, really, really loud, and not distort. This is where they pull ahead of other towers I’ve heard in this price range, when you crank the volume you get more intensity, more aural excitement. There’s no hint of fatigue, no dynamic compression, no detectable distortion. If you want to turn your home into a club, whether that’s a dance club or a jazz club, a pair of Kendall towers plus a powerful amp are the ticket.”
