JBL – L75ms Music System
The curvacious JBL L75ms Music System embraces consumers who seek an easy way to listen to their music collection without sacrificing acoustic performance. The L75ms takes its design inspiration from the JBL Classic Series, a modern re-imagining of the traditional Hi-Fi system. It shares its walnut wood veneer cabinet finish and black Quadrex foam grille. Behind that retro appearance, though, the L75ms houses thoroughly modern acoustic technology, including high-res audio capability wired and wireless connectivity.
The integrated streaming engine provides wired and wireless network audio capabilities via Ethernet, Google Chromecast Built-in, Apple AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth audio. A 32-bit/192kHz high-resolution DAC ensures the best performance from digital audio. The L75ms provides several connections for physical sources, including a moving magnet (MM) phono stage and a 3.5mm analogue input. Crucially, it also offers an HDMI ARC input, making it the ideal audio partner for a TV set-up.
Designed and engineered at the Harman Center of Acoustics Excellence in Northridge, California, the L75ms leverages JBL’s past 75 years of loudspeaker designs to deliver outstanding sound. It also ticks all the boxes when it comes to delivering showstopping looks, while its elegant design means it perfectly integrates into a home’s decor.
