JBL’s new speaker to come to UK this April

The JBL L82 Classic loudspeaker, a new, modern, bookshelf version of JBL’s well-received L100 Classic, has been developed to deliver the distinctive styling and excellent audio performance of its predecessors in a more compact format.

Following the L82’s debut at CES earlier this month, it has been announced that it will be available in the UK “around April 2020,” priced at £2,000 per pair.

Based on the JBL L100 Classic loudspeaker introduced in 2018, the new L82 Classic’s 8-inch, 2-way system design is more compact, but still, says the company, “delivers a premium hi-fi sound experience and an attractive aesthetic that appeals to both retro and modern sensibilities.” Packaged and sold as mirror-image pairs, the L82 Classic loudspeakers feature a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter with acoustic lens waveguide and front-panel HF Level attenuator. The tweeter is the same as used in the larger L100 Classic. The system’s 8-inch cast frame white poly cone woofer delivers a full, natural sound with bass-reflex tuning via a front-firing Slipstream™ port.

The distinctive Quadrex foam grille comes in a choice of three colours — black, orange, or blue – all with a black and bronze JBL logo. The enclosures are finished in a genuine, satin walnut wood veneer and can be positioned vertically or horizontally.

JS-80 floor stands (sold as a pair), to elevate and angle the enclosures to a correct tweeter height and to direct high frequencies to ear level, will be available at £175 per pair, and additional retro Quadrex foam grille packs in black, orange or blue are also available to complement any decor.
