JBL L75ms All-In-One Music System Announced
JBL predicts that its retro-styled L75ms all-in-one music system will be an “instant classic”.
JBL's L75ms definitely has the stylistic chops of the company's reinvented 70s classics, which started with the Applause Award-winning L100 Classic and then, more recently, the L82 Classic and the just-announced L52 Classic.
So, it stands to reason that the all-new JBL L75ms sports a walnut wood veneer finish and black Quadrex foam grille. However, you are greeted with a curved front panel upfront, hinting that there is more afoot here.
Sure enough, behind the Quadrex, sitting in a multi-angled baffle, is a pair of 1-inch titanium dome tweeters, two 5.25-inch white cone woofers with dual front-firing ports, and a 4-inch central midrange driver, each driven by a dedicated channel of amplification and DSP tuning.
Furthermore, more modern technology is to be found by way of wired and wireless network audio capabilities, Google Chromecast Built-in, Apple AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth audio. A 32-bit/192kHz high-resolution DAC does the number-crunching for digital audio, whereas the moving magnet (MM) phono stage should keep vinylistas entertained. Additionally, there's a 3.5mm port and an HDMI ARC input for hooking the L75ms to your television with the benefit of a dedicated signal sensing subwoofer output to add even more impact to your movie experience.
JBL is obviously proud of the capabilities of the L75ms as it has partnered with Qobuz to offer a free trial subscription for customers to provide them with the experience of listening to high-resolution music.
David Solomon, Chief Hi-Res Music Evangelist at Qobuz, told StereoNET:
We are excited to be able to expose more music enthusiasts to our platform by bundling a 90-Day premium subscription with this incredible music system.
Also, to give you some insight into the creation of the L75ms, JBL is working with Qobuz to curate a playlist of songs used by the engineering and product team during the development of the all-in-one.
The JBL L75ms Music System will be available in October/ November with a retail price of US$1,500.
