JBL combines decades of audio expertise with the latest advancements in sound technology to create a range of products that blend nostalgic design with modern features. The JBL Authentics speaker range and the JBL Spinner BT turntable are the result of over 75 years of audio engineering experience. These new innovations cater to audiophiles who desire a touch of nostalgia without sacrificing contemporary conveniences.
The Authentics range draws inspiration from the iconic JBL L100 speakers of the 1970s, incorporating the classic Quadrex grille pattern. However, the design evolution is evident in the softer edges and subtle convex form, which pay homage to the company’s rich heritage while embracing modern aesthetics.
Grace Koh, Vice President and General Manager of Consumer Audio at HARMAN Asia-Pacific, emphasizes the importance of brand heritage and the superior qualities of the JBL Authentics range. This speaker range combines retro design with cutting-edge sound technology, including Dolby Atmos and simultaneous voice assistants. It is a testament to the future of audio, meeting the demand for “newstalgia.”
The Authentics speaker range consists of three models: Authentics 500, Authentics 300, and Authentics 200, each catering to different audio preferences. The Authentics 500 offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, supporting Dolby Atmos for an immersive listening experience. For portability, the Authentics 300 features an 8-hour built-in battery, while the Authentics 200 delivers well-balanced stereo sound.
One groundbreaking feature is the integration of Amazon and Google voice assistants, providing an unparalleled user experience.
The JBL Spinner BT Turntable combines impressive looks with exceptional capabilities. With an aluminum platter and tonearm, it ensures smooth, distortion-free playback at both 33 1⁄3 rpm and 45 rpm. The turntable’s visual appeal is enhanced by JBL orange or gold accents and a modern front panel.
The JBL Authentics Speaker Range and the Spinner BT Turntable are expected to be available in the Philippines in the last quarter of 2023. Stay updated on their release by following JBL Philippines on social media or visiting their website at https://www.jbl.com.ph/.
