Harman continues to command the lead in compact, wireless speaker technology with the announcement of the new JBL Authentics L16 wireless speaker system. The JBL Authentics L16 Sound System features a walnut-veneered enclosure and supercharged three-way sound, with six 50W amplifiers driving six speakers to fill any room with exceptional volume and unbeatable audio at studio-quality 96 kHz/24 bit.
"No one has a better claim to authenticity in great audio reproduction," said Michael Mauser, president, Lifestyle Division, Harman. "The JBL Authentics speakers are immediately recognizable classic speakers, updated for the way we listen to music today, with the latest in wireless connectivity for Wi-Fi and handheld devices."
The JBL Authentics L16 features AirPlay, DLNA and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling audio to be streamed from any wireless device. The classic speakers are also the first to boast Harman Signal Doctor. This innovative and exclusive technology restores the details lost in today's compressed music files, adding detail and energy to even low quality MP3 files from your mobile device.
As well as having the latest in sound technology, the JBL Authentics L16 wireless speaker system also epitomize the best in JBL heritage. They feature authentic materials; system optimized low-frequency and high-frequency JBL transducers, and the meticulous acoustic design that is expected from JBL. With JBL Authentics speakers' 24-bit / 96 kHz digital signal path, you'll hear studio-quality sound. Audio CDs reproduce sound at a 44.1 kHz sample rate, at 16 bits per sample. But recording studios work at a 96 kHz sample rate, with 24 bits per sample. The JBL Authentics L16 wireless speaker system supports this higher, studio-quality sample rate and bit depth, all the way through. The result is jaw-dropping audio quality and a wide stereo image from a single enclosure, ideal for any audiophile.
The expertise of the JBL Authentics L16 is not just in the technology. With a luxurious wood housing and retro grill treatment, the systems will complement interior decor ranging from mid-century modern to transitional to contemporary rooms in any living space. Stylish and self-contained, they are an ideal sound system for use with any audio source.
