JBL L75ms Music System: The JBL L75ms music system caters to the audio enthusiast who seeks an easier way to listen to their music collection without sacrificing acoustic performance. As a modern re-imagining of the traditional Hi-Fi system, the L75ms finds its design inspiration from JBL's own Classic Series with which it shares its walnut wood veneer cabinet finish and black Quadrex foam grille. Behind its retro appearance lies modern acoustic technology including Hi-Res audio capability and a variety of wired and wireless connectivity.
Legendary JBL Sound: Inside the JBL L75ms music system's retro-inspired speaker cabinet is a five driver array and powerful Class D amplification that work together to create a wide, even soundfield over a large listening area that delivers JBL legendary sound.
Five Driver Array: The JBL L75ms music system utilizes a five driver array featuring two 1" aluminum dome tweeters with waveguides, one 4" pulp cone midrange driver, and dual 5.25" pulp cone woofers for room-filling stereo sound from a compact speaker system.
Discrete Amplification with DSP: Each of the five drivers has a dedicated channel of amplification and DSP tuning to deliver a remarkably wide soundstage across a large listening area. The JBL L75ms music system delivers 350 watts (RMS) of power for dynamic, high-performance sound with low distortion. Each of the two tweeters receives 25 watts of power, while the one midrange receives 50 watts of power and each of the two woofers receives 125 watts of power.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The retro-inspired speaker cabinet features a curved front-panel shape and a bass reflex design to produce a broad soundstage with impactful bass. The speaker cabinet is finished in walnut wood veneer and comes with a black Quadrex foam grille.
32-Bit/192kHz Hi-Res DAC: The JBL L75ms music system employs a 32-bit/192kHz high-resolution DAC (digital-to-analog converter) that ensures your favorite music comes across with the highest fidelity. Compatible music files include MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, and WAV.

Bass Contour Switch: Set the JBL L75ms' bass contour switch based on the speaker system proximity to side boundaries such as walls and inside a bookcase or cabinet. When the speaker is close to a boundary the switch should be in the -3dB position in order to maintain level bass response. When the system is positioned away from boundaries and in free space, the switch should be in the 0dB position.
