Harman Luxury Audio launches JBL compact loudspeakers
The new JBL 4309 Studio Monitor compact bookshelf loudspeaker from Harman’s Luxury Audio Group is modelled on the award-winning JBL 4349, and is equipped with a 2410H-2 1-inch compression driver mated to the latest High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) horn and featuring a 6.5-inch, cast frame pure-pulp cone woofer.
The JBL 4309, which has
just been announced as a Red Dot Design Award 2021 winner, is a smaller
bookshelf version of the recently released 4349 12-inch two-way monitor
loudspeakers and features many of the same patented JBL acoustic technologies
Jim Garrett, Senior
Director, Product Strategy and Planning, Harman Luxury Audio, said: “Our Studio
Monitor series of high-performance loudspeakers are some of our most popular
models globally as there simply isn’t anything else like them. The combination
of the heritage pro-style aesthetics and state-of-the-art acoustic technologies
packaged together in the small form factor of the 4309 results in a fantastic
loudspeaker discerning listeners will love. We expect these to be desirable to
music lovers who want the performance of the JBL 4349 in a more compact size.”
The JBL 4309 Studio Monitor sports a classic JBL monitor design with the iconic blue baffle and is finished in a choice of walnut or black walnut furniture-grade satin wood veneers. A blue (walnut) or black (black walnut) cloth grille completes the styling. Dual sets of gold-plated binding posts provide a secure connection and offer a choice of single-ended or bi-wire/bi-amplified connections.
The JBL 4309 Studio Monitor will be available for purchase in June 2021 with pricing of £1,799 per pair.
