JBL Classic mini me


JBL has launched the L82 Classic. Based on the JBL L100 Classic, the new L82 Classic’s 8-inch, 2-way system design is more compact, but “still delivers a premium hi-fi sound experience and an attractive aesthetic that appeals to both retro and modern sensibilities”. The L82 Classic has a US retail price of $2,500 per pair, while the JS-80 floor stands are $250 per pair and additional grille colors are $199 per pair. Availability begins in April 2020.

Packaged and sold as mirror-image pairs, the L82 Classic loudspeakers feature a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter with acoustic lens waveguide and front-panel HF level attenuator. The tweeter is the same as used in the larger L100 Classic. The system’s 8-inch cast frame white poly cone woofer is coupled with bass-reflex tuning via a front-firing Slipstream port.

The L82 Classic loudspeakers feature a retro design with vintage JBL styling including Quadrex foam grilles in a choice of three colors — black, orange, or blue — all with a black and bronze JBL logo. The enclosures are finished in satin walnut wood veneer and can be positioned vertically or horizontally. Accessories for the JBL L82 Classic loudspeakers include the JS-80 floor stands (sold as a pair) and additional Quadrex foam grille packs (black, orange, or blue) are available to easily fit the speakers into any decor.
