JBL 4329P Studio Monitor with built-in amplifier

Larger JBL wireless speaker with deeper bass and more powerful sound.

Published 2023-01-30 - 10:00 am

The very compact and wireless JBL 4305P speaker took us by storm in 2022. It’s small enough to fit on your bookshelf, and potent enough to fill your living room with sound.

But for some, this one’s too small. After all, there’s a limit to how much sound – and especially how much bass – you can get out of a speaker this small. The larger 4329P would therefore be a better choice for those who see the benefits of a pair of wireless speakers that are good enough to replace a stereo system.

A larger cabinet with room for a 20 cm JW200P woofer, paired with a 25 mm 2409H compression driver in the tweeter and 300 watts of total power will probably produce a much more full-bodied sound.

The 20 cm fibre cone in the woofer unit has a full 250 watts of power at its disposal, while the tweeter unit is equipped with 50 watts of power. All controlled by a DSP circuit.

All inputs are located on a panel on the back of the speakers. Here you’ll find an optical digital input, an analogue audio input and a USB input. The speakers’ built-in DAC supports up to 24 bit/192 KHz audio as well as MQA files (Tidal Hi-Fi), and they are prepared to be controlled from a Roon client.

There is also an Ethernet input for wired connection to the network and combined XLR/TRS connectors. The JBL speakers support Wi-Fi via Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 – and they also have Bluetooth 5.3 with aptX support.

HDMI is about the only thing they lack, but since most TVs have an optical digital output, TV audio can be connected over the speakers if you want.

The JBL 4329P will go on sale in early second quarter 2023, priced at $4,500 a pair, and available with optional JS-80 floor stands.
