HI-FI SHOW: JBL Synthesis to Deliver Truly Immersive Home Cinema Experience

The Victoria Room on Level 1 will host a dedicated home cinema experience like no other at this year's StereoNET Hi-Fi & AV Show, thanks to JBL Synthesis.

The American brand, founded in 1946, has a legendary history in cinema sound reproduction. With 75 years of innovation building on JBL's rich history of audio excellence, JBL Synthesis has become a leader in multi-channel immersive audio worldwide. This rich history includes Lucasfilm selecting JBL to develop the first commercial THX-licensed cinema speaker system in 1983. Nine years later, JBL Synthesis released the first THX home theatre system. Today, JBL Synthesis offers one of the most advanced multi-channel audio systems available, with the ability to scale from small, intimate spaces to the largest private home cinemas.

Showcased in the Victoria Room by Australian distributor Convoy will be a 7.4.4 Dolby Atmos configuration, explicitly chosen to demonstrate realistic and practical home cinema configurations. Products featured will include the JBL SDR-35 AV Receiver, SDA-7120 7-Channel Class-G Amplifier, and newly released SCL-6/7/8 in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. 

Providing the visual delights will be nothing less than a Barco Residential Bragi CS projector, featuring 5K resolution in Cinemascope utilising their patented 2:37 DLP Chipset. LED illumination allows the widest colour gamut that can produce 100% of DCI p3 Colour. With 2200 ANSI lumens, it can produce 40 foot-lamberts for true HDR on screens up to 3.1 m wide. 
The 100,000:1 dynamic contrast combined with the highest quality all-glass lenses produces flawless 4K images with zero edge to edge artefacts.

You won't want to miss the JBL Synthesis home cinema demonstration, with packages suited for all room sizes and budgets. Check them out in Victoria Room, Level 1.

The StereoNET Hi-Fi & AV Show takes place June 3rd-5th, 2022, at the Pullman Mercure Hotel, Albert Park VIC. Tickets are on sale now.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
