The new line of JBL Synthesis electronics for 2020 is designed to once again firmly establish JBL Synthesis brand as a turnkey solution to the ultimate home cinema experience, says the company.
Announced earlier in 2019 at CEDIA, the SDR-35 Immersive Surround Sound AV Receiver, SDP-55 Immersive Surround Sound Processor, and JBL Synthesis SDA-2200 and SDA-7120 Class G Amplifiers with Dante deliver exceptional performance, value and flexibility without compromise for a broad range of custom install applications, argues the company.
The SDR-35 and SDP-55 provide a number of ways to experience content- over Ethernet or Wi-Fi with Google Chromecast built-in and Apple AirPlay 2, playback from network media servers, or a USB flash drive.
High resolution audio can be sourced from a smart TV via eArc. Bluetooth with aptX HD is supported, as well as DAB/FM for terrestrial radio. The MusicLife app enables control of the streaming content from iOS and Android devices. In addition, the SDP35 and SDP-55 are Roon Ready.
This new line of products features Dante, the uncompressed multi-channel digital media networking technology, with near-zero latency and synchronization common in pro audio installations. All 16 channels of 24 bit / 192K processed audio, plus Zone 2 (18 channels total) can be routed to any Dante-enabled receiving device over a standard network. Eliminating the need for expensive analogue or multicore cabling, replacing it with CAT5e or CAT6 cable.
The SDR-35 AVR, SDA-2200 and SDA-7120 feature dynamic Class G amplification, implementing multiple power supplies.
The first power supply runs in pure Class A, which has no crossover distortion. If a dynamic signal is received that goes beyond the capability of this first power supply, the secondary supply is gradually incorporated up to full rated power output as required.
This design means additional power is only used when required and delivers exceptional fidelity. The JBL Synthesis brand is available in the UK from Karma AV.
The company will also be launching the JBL Conceal series of loudspeakers, designed to envelop listeners in premium sound with an invisible footprint.
The loudspeakers combine patented Stealth Acoustics invisible loudspeaker innovations with JBL acoustic design to deliver an advanced invisible loudspeakers design.
The speakers use Stealth’s patented transducer implementation into a rigid compression molded baffle that is skinned with seventh generation Fidelity Glass acoustic panels.
They feature JBL premium acoustic crossover networks and spring-loaded connections, as well as an integrated back box enclosure. The design results in a loudspeaker that installs like a drywall patch. The surface can be painted to match the wall, or custom finished for blending into any creative decor. Experience it all on Stand 1M50 at ISE 2020.
