JBL L75ms Music System

JBL has just launched a new, complete music system in the style of their popular Classic speakers. If the sound is in the same class, the L75ms might be really exciting!

Wireless speakers and music systems are available in all price ranges and shapes: The compact systems are not necessarily a replacement for a large, full-blooded stereo system with separate speakers, but a compact can do an excellent job as a second system. If not for the living room, then maybe for the office or the kitchen?

JBL’s latest offereing is a sysyem that will possibly pique the interest of hard-boiled hi-fi enthusiasts. The JBL L75ms caters to enthusiasts who want a simple and usable music system, without compromising on sound quality.

The new sound system is clearly inspired by JBL’s other speakers in the Classic series: with a cabinet clad in walnut veneer and a grill in black Quadrex foam, the system has a clear retro style. On the inside, however, it is full of modern features, and JBL/Harman seems to have quite high ambitions when it comes to sound reproduction.

The L75ms uses a three-way speaker system with two 1″ titanium dome tweeters, a 4″ midrange (that apparantly works as a center channel) and two 5.25″ woofers in a bass reflex enclosure, each driver powered by a dedicated amplifier channels with DSP. The speaker is curved at the front to ensure good sound distribution. And perhaps just slightly suggestive of the curvature of JBL Paragon.  A built-in 32-bit/192kHz DAC ensures that the JBL speaker can handle high-resolution audio formats, and music playback can be controlled via remote control or JBL’s Musiclife app.

The connectivity options are also good, with both Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplay 2, Chromecast as well as Ethernet. JBL has included a phono input (MM) so you can connect your trusty turntable, and HDMI ARC to the TV audio. Interestingly, there is also a subwoofer output on the back.

Are we seeing a new competitor to Naim Mu-so and other expensive table speakers? It will be our job to find out, because it is definitely tempting to order JBL L75ms for testing!

Price and availability

JBL L75ms will be launched during the autumn of 2021 (expect late October), at a price of £1500.

Don't buy the European version

The Sony NW-WM1ZM2 is a fantastic piece of craftsmanship. But avoid the version for the European market.

The best buy in its class

Pro-Ject Debut Pro marks the company's 30th anniversary with style and finesse.


The little brown NAD amplifier caused a sensation. No one had heard such great sound from a small amplifier that cost so little.

Prefers good recordings

Although the Elipson P1 is the company's first preamplifier, it is pleasantly free of bugs. If you're looking for an amplifier set at the upper end of the premium class, the answer may well be French.

Grows with the tasks

Elipson's power amplifier works treacherously small. But it's really a heavyweight that gets the best out of your best recordings.

Award-winning RIAA in a new version

Vertere's turntable amplifier has arrived in an updated version, called Phono-1 MKII L
