On the Harman stand, amongst other news, we discovered a new proprietary technology, with the company’s new Image Control Waveguide, featured in the new 3 MkII series. Also built with newly developed transducers, this new line of speakers promises to offer quality, high detailed sound and an accurate dynamic range that improves critical listening even in the most precise situations.
Equipped with the proprietary technology inherited from the JBL 7 series and M2 Master Reference Monitors, the 3 Series MkII offers a modern and elegant design, a pleasant and “accommodating” mix experience at an affordable price point. JBL Series 3 MkII monitors are available in three different configurations: 305P MkII (with 5 “woofer), 306P MkII (with 6.5″ woofer) and 308P MkII (with 8 “woofer).
The portable Eon One Pro column speaker was also presented, for the first time in the American market. The system is powered by rechargeable lithium ion batteries that can ensure 6 hours of battery life.
The line array configuration, with six 2″ drivers, is able to ensure a nominal coverage of 100° x 50° and a sound pressure equal to 118 dB SPL, thanks also to the unit’s 8″ low frequency driver. The medium/high unit can be dismantled to be stored in the bass cabinet, which also contains the electronics, becoming a single box weighing just 17 kg.
On the panel there are 2 mic/line inputs with equalisation, reverb effect and phantom power, a line connection and bluetooth connection for the wireless playback of audio from a smartphone or tablet.
