JBL is a manufacturer with a long history in the industry of loudspeakers and matching sound equipment which has just announced the arrival in the fall of a new model of an interesting and stylish compact system with which it seeks to combine the latest streaming features with a clear retro touch.

This is the L75ms, a classically inspired set made of wood, with striking fabric and a foam front that certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.

We are faced with a self-powered speaker with a curved facade and inside which a two-channel stereo arrangement has been chosen with two titanium tweeters of 1 inch in diameter placed at the ends followed by two speakers. 5.25 inches for low frequencies.

In the center they have incorporated a 4-inch center woofer for the midrange which we assume will be shared by the two channels and under the tweeters we find two bass-reflex air vents with which to improve the response in the low frequencies. .

Each pilot will have its own dedicated amplifier and the set can be used to play content via Google Chromecast, Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth, being able to access the files that we have stored on computers connected to the local network, but also on services of streaming such as Qobuz, offering the builder a 90-day free trial.

It will also have 3.5 mm jack inputs for, for example, old music players or a computer, a phono MM input to connect a vinyl turntable and an HDMI ARC port in case you want to use it as a recording system. his TV. In addition, it will come with an auxiliary output to connect an external subwoofer and thus provide better low frequency performance.
