Check Out JBL Spinner BT Turntable and Authentics Speakers Range

JBL introduces the Spinner BT Turntable and 3 JBL Authentics speakers – Authentics 200, Authentics 300 and Authentics 500 at IFA 2023.

They will be available in Singapore from the 4th Quarter. Pricing-wise, we will have to wait. I really love the turntable as I think it is coming back again with new technologies built-in.

JBL Adds Modern Twist on Classic Designs with Newly Launched Authentics Speaker Range and Spinner BT Turntable

Striking sound performance meets timeless retro design in this product pairing inspired by JBL’s heritage

1 September 2023, Singapore — Leading audio equipment manufacturer JBL taps on over 75 years of professional expertise and heritage to roll out its latest product pairing, the JBL Authentics speaker range and the JBL Spinner BT turntable. Perfectly complementing each other, the two new offerings breathe new life into the retro designs of the iconic JBL L100 speaker from the 1970s and the timeless turntable respectively, updating these original products with modern technologies that take nostalgic audio experiences to new heights with immersive sound, wireless connectivity, and sleek finishes. 

Inspired by the brand’s rich history, the Authentics range features elements from some of its more iconic designs such as the Quadrex grille pattern, from the phenomenally popular JBL L100 home speakers that were first released in 1970. Blended with contemporary touches like softer flowing edges and a subtle convex form that intimates at the force of powerful sound waves, the JBL Authentics range symbolises the best of JBL’s illustrious past and innovative present. 

“The heritage of our brands has always been important to us, and the JBL Authentics range delivers on audio quality, unique design, and unmatched features,” said Grace Koh, Vice President & General Manager of Consumer Audio at HARMAN Asia-Pacific. “We live in an era where ‘newstalgia’ is in great demand. The JBL Authentics range draws from our iconic past with its retro design while delivering the superior sound and technology that our customers expect. Innovations such as Dolby Atmos and simultaneous voice assistants meet the retro and reimagined Quadrex grille design in a speaker range that defines the future of audio.”

JBL’s Heritage Captured in Retro Design

The JBL Authentics speaker range draws on JBL’s storied history with a modern twist, with its design paying homage to the legendary JBL L100 speaker from the 1970s. With a premium aluminum frame, custom synthetic leather-wrapped enclosure, and a reimagined Quadrex grille, the JBL Authentics range is designed to impress. 

Outstanding JBL Signature Sound

The JBL Authentics speaker range allows listeners to experience superior audio performance. Available in three variations, the JBL Authentics 500 is the most feature-packed in the series: a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth smart speaker delivering Dolby Atmos to envelop listeners in immersive room-filling sound. The JBL Authentics 300 offers portable, high-performance sound with a built-in 8-hour battery, while the JBL Authentics 200 fills any space with powerful well-balanced stereo sound thanks to its 1” tweeters, full-range 5” woofers and downfiring 6” passive radiator.

Vibrant Design and Elegant Finish

The JBL Spinner BT’s sleek design consists of an aluminum platter and tonearm, black MDF plinth with JBL orange or gold accents, a contemporary front panel, and a hinged dust cover that makes the unit an aesthetically pleasing sight. 

Smooth, Distortion-Free Sound  

Driven by a belt drive and motor with an optical sensor underneath, the die cast aluminum platter ensures records are played perfectly in time at 33⅓ rpm for albums, or 45 rpm for EPs and singles. The black MDF plinth enhances sound tonality for an uncompromised sound of records. 

The JBL Authentics speaker range and the JBL Spinner BT turntable will be available for purchase at JBL online stores and all JBL authorised retailers in Singapore in the fourth quarter of 2023. Prices are to be announced.
