JBL Introduces LS Series Loudspeakers
At CEDIA Expo 2008, JBL, Inc. introduced its LS Series high-end loudspeakers, utilizing state-of-the-art engineering and materials to deliver extraordinary sound quality. JBL® LS Series models have an elegant appearance, and are exceptionally crafted in a stunning high-gloss finish. The LS Series includes a bookshelf loudspeaker (LS40); two floorstanding speakers (LS60, LS80); and a center channel speaker (LS CENTER). Suggested retail prices range from $999 to $1,999 each.
LS Series loudspeakers combine advanced-technology compression drivers with dynamic drivers to achieve the best sonic qualities of both – the exceptional dynamic range, transient response and transparency of compression drivers, and the articulation and presence of the finest dynamic drivers.
The speakers’ 176ND high-frequency compression driver operates in conjunction with a Bi-Radial® horn that provides optimum dispersion and a smooth frequency response both on- and off-axis. The 015M ring-radiator ultrahigh-frequency driver delivers frequency extension to beyond 40kHz. It is mounted in an exclusive Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) waveguide to deliver accurate imaging in an immersive sound field. LS Series woofers utilize proprietary PolyPlas™ polymer-coated-cellulose-fiber cone material for articulate, powerful bass.
LS Series loudspeakers are constructed from only the finest materials. They are distinctively elegant in design, with curved contours, tapered sides and a high-gloss stained-wood finish.
