JBL has been one of the busiest brands in CES 2023. And the audio specialist has wrapped up the much-awaited event with style.
It released the JBL Classic Series of 2023, which has an amazing CD player, turntable, all-new integrated amp, and high-end music stream. The 2023 Classic Series of JBL maintains the nostalgia-tinged design in all of the HiFi devices.
First, you have the limited edition SA750, which is an integrated amplifier. It marks the 75th anniversary of JBL. And its walnut veneers and brushed metal finishes will surely take you back in time.
Then, there is the SA350, which comes with a Class G amplifier. And it comes with the latest aptX Adaptive Bluetooth Codec.
That support will offer hi-res playback in the lowest wireless latency possible. Its audio streaming capability is up to 24-bit/192 kHz.
The SA350 from the 2023 JBL Classic Series sports 90W of power per channel. And the unit even comes with a good range of inputs, including an MM/MC phono stage, 3x stereo RCA, and three digital inputs.
Furthermore, you have the CD350; this CD player from the JBL Classic Series boasts an internal high-resolution DAC.
That will offer “bit-perfect sound” for all your streaming needs. Through the USB-A port, you can get up to 24-bit/96 Khz.
The MP350 high-end digital audio streaming system also comes with aptX Adaptive Bluetooth. That will offer hi-res and low-latency wireless audio streaming through wireless devices.
Besides that, you have the JBL TT350 in the new 2023 JBL Classic Series. It is a direct-drive turntable, which comes with a heavy die-cast aluminum platter.
The TT350 also comes with a curved aluminum tonearm, which boasts a “high-quality” Audio-Technica moving magnet cartridge.
All four devices of the 2023 JBL Classis Series are due to be released in the middle of 2023. However, these are not the only products that JBL unveiled this year.
Outside of the range, there is the Bluetooth-ready turnable Spinner BT. Although there is no walnut finish or any special design available, it does come with a 70s retro vibe.
The Spinner BT also comes with a touch of modern tech. It has aptX HD steaming on-board and switchable phono-stage analog output.
This output will enable you to hook the Spinner BT with a device from the JBL Classic Series HiFi component or a pair of active speakers.
