JBL Professional Launches One Series 104-BT Desktop Speakers with Bluetooth

JBL Professional have launched the new One Series 104-BT and 104-BTW desktop speakers with Bluetooth at the 2020 NAMM show in Anaheim, California.

Available in a stylish matte white or matte black finish, JBL 104-BT and 104-BTW combine legendary sound quality, class-leading performance and flexibility.

JBL 104 Series are suitable for both consumer and critical audio referencing. They can be used for home-recording studios, podcasters, video editors and anyone looking for accurate, yet portable monitors.

“Music production has evolved beyond the recording studio, and today’s creative professionals and music lovers need reference monitors that deliver neutral, accurate sound to create mixes that translate well in a variety of listening environments,” said Chris Hansen, Director, Recording and Content Creation, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “At the 2020 NAMM and CES shows, we’ll be showcasing the class-leading sound quality, impressive output and high-bandwidth Bluetooth 5.0 streaming capabilities of the new JBL 104-BT monitors. Ideal for musicians, producers, podcasters and professional audio engineers who want a compact reference monitor with the added benefit of Bluetooth at an accessible price, JBL 104-BT monitors provide an accurate, reliable sonic reference and a truly enjoyable listening experience.”

The JBL 104-BT desktop speaker features a cutting-edge coaxial driver and[port design that pairs a contoured low-frequency woofer with a soft-dome tweeter, for accurate frequency response, superior imaging, crisp detail, and a wide sweet spot. The cabinet’s low-frequency port works with the driver to deliver impressive low frequency performance down to 60Hz. A powerful 60-watt Class D power amplifier distributes 30 watts per speaker for clear, undistorted, loudest-in-class output. And One Series’ innovative acoustic design, optimised for desktop use ensures accuracy without the need for additional EQ.

High-bandwidth Bluetooth 5.0 streaming, beyond offering the convenience of audio playback from mobile devices, provides audio professionals the ability to reference mixes over Bluetooth using a professional monitor, rather than a consumer portable device. This ensures that your audio will sound its best, no matter what the playback environment.

JBL 104-BT desktop speakers integrate smoothly into any production workspace, thanks to smart features like a front-panel input control that selects Bluetooth, Aux, RCA, TRS or combines all inputs. Front-panel volume control allows convenient level adjustments without straying from the sweet spot, and a front-panel headphone jack conveniently mutes the speakers when you switch to headphones. Dual 1/4-inch balanced, dual RCA and single 1/8-inch inputs, along with Bluetooth accommodate a wide range of signal sources.

JBL One Series reference monitors were created with the modern production lifestyle in mind. With a sleek, elegant look and a compact form factor, creators can get legendary JBL sound while conserving valuable workspace. An optional protective carrying case will also be available for production on the go. Both the black 104-BT and white 104-BTW make stunning statements in any studio.
