JBL Delivers Industry Leading Acoustics With HDI Series Loudspeaker Range

Veterans in speaker design and iconic brand JBL is sure to set new benchmarks with its imminent release of the HDI Series of loudspeakers.

The range is said to be “a showcase of JBL's industry-leading acoustics technologies, delivering unrivalled performance in combination with elegant cabinetry and a modern design aesthetic.”

The foundation of HDI's range is JBL's patented High-Definition Imaging waveguide technology coupled with the patented 2410H-2 high-frequency compression driver. Typical of the JBL sound, this combination delivers realistic dynamics, lifelike imaging, and that “you are there” presence for music and movies alike, says the company.

HDI woofers feature Advanced Aluminum Matrix cones and take advantage of core JBL engineering techniques for very high output with low distortion. 

The HDI enclosures are heavily braced with the curved cabinet shape offering a modern design with no visible fasteners and magnetically attached grilles. There's a choice of premium finish options including painted high-gloss black, satin walnut wood veneer, and satin grey oak wood veneer. 

JBL says its new HDI Series is the embodiment of the modern JBL high-performance loudspeaker.

Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, Harman Luxury Audio, told StereoNET:

The HDI Series leverages some of our most advanced JBL technologies and acoustic performance capabilities to deliver a premium music and home theater experience. The professional-grade compression drivers and HDI waveguides deliver incredibly realistic dynamics and lifelike imaging that makes music and movies come alive.

The range includes HDI-3800 ($8,999 RRP) triple 8-inch floorstander, HDI-3600 ($6,999 RRP) triple 6.5-inch floorstander, HDI-1600 ($3,499) 6.5-inch bookshelf, HDI-4500 ($5,999) quadruple 5.25-inch center channel, and HDI-1200P ($5,499) 1,000 Watt powered subwoofer. Optional floor stands for the HDI-1600 are also available for $899 RRP.

Australian distributor Convoy, says the HDI Series stock arrival is imminent and is available to preorder now. Interested customers and dealers can register their interest here.
