Since its inception in 1946, JBL has been an enduring presence in the audio world. From the vinyl-clad 60s to the pulsating disco of the 80s, to the digital streams of today — our speakers have been amplifying life’s soundtrack across generations, captivating listeners worldwide with high-fidelity sound.
Paying homage to this illustrious heritage, we're excited to unveil the newest JBL Authentics 200, 300, and 500 Bluetooth speakers, as well as the JBL Spinner BT turntable. Marrying the elegance of classic design with the marvels of modern technology, they stand ready to become the jewel of your living space, poised to transport you into a realm of audio bliss.
Inspired by JBL’s legendary L100 speaker in the 70s, the Authentics lineup features an unmistakable signature look that is easily recognisable in any home. With its classy black and gold motif, premium aluminium frames, custom leather-like panelling, and the reimagined Quadrex grille, the entire lineup exudes retro charm.
The iconic waffle pattern that dominates the front of each speaker isn’t just eye-catching; it promises to spark conversations and admiration in equal measure.
Although the speakers in the new Authentics series sport a retro look, deep down they’re anything but. Beneath that vintage exterior lies precision-engineered, modern components that deliver the renowned sound JBL is known for: rich, pure, and always breathtaking.
With the 200, 300, and 500 models, there’s a perfect speaker to match every type of listening preference.
JBL Authentics 200
While the JBL Authentics 200 may be compact, it's engineered to defy expectations. Equipped with a duo of 25mm tweeters, a robust 5-inch woofer, and a 6-inch down-firing passive radiator — it offers an auditory experience that belies its size, ensuring that even the most intimate spaces come alive with rich, high-fidelity sound.
Perfectly suited for snug corners or smaller rooms, place it on a shelf or in a nook and let the vibrant sound and deep bass transform any spot into the best seat in the house.
